Former state lawmaker David Lujan is returning to the state Capitol to fill the seat left vacant by Kyrsten Sinema.
The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors appointed Lujan, a former House minority leader, to the position in a meeting today.
Officials from Maricopa County are acting quickly to fill the Senate seat left vacant by the resignation of Kyrsten Sinema, who is running for Congress.
The county’s supervisors will pick her replacement in a meeting Wednesday morning, Beth Lewallen, the county’s legislative liaison, confirmed today.
Democrats from Phoenix picked two former lawmakers and one other as candidates to replace former Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, who resigned her Legislative District 15 seat Jan. 3 to run for Congress.
A panel from Sinema’s district selected former Rep. David Lujan, who actually served with Sinema while she was in the House, former Rep. Ken Clark, a realtor, and Arizona Democratic Party Secretary Sharon Thomas, as potential replacements.
When Kyrsten Sinema announced the launch of her congressional campaign on Tuesday, she had a full staff contingent in place.
And more members are expected to join the team soon as the Phoenix Democrat starts her campaign for Arizona’s 9th Congressional District.
