Tucson man chosen for Arizona redistricting panel

Arizona’s new redistricting commission has a third member.

An appointment announced Wednesday by Senate President Russell Pearce puts Tucson civic activist Richard Stertz on the Independent Redistricting Commission.

The commission will draw new congressional and legislative districts for the state to use in the coming decade.

Like Pearce, Stertz is a Republican.

Two other legislative leaders previously appointed commission members — one Republican and one Democrat — and another legislative leader will make the fourth appointment now that Pearce has made his choice.

A fifth commissioner will be chosen by the four commissioners chosen by the legislative leaders. The fifth commissioner will serve as chairman.
