The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors named a citizens panel this week which will choose candidates to be appointed to the Legislative District 4 seat in the Arizona House of Representatives. This was the next step in the process outlined in A.R.S. § 41-1202 following the resignation of State Representative Jesus Rubalcava.
Legislative District 4 runs along the southwestern border of Arizona and includes portions of Maricopa, Pima, Pinal and Yuma Counties. State law requires that the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors fill the vacancy because the resigning legislator resides in Maricopa County.
“LD 4 includes voters in District 4 and 5 here in the county,” said Supervisor Steve Gallardo, District 5. “We are working together and also including citizens from Yuma County to sit on this panel and help decide who will represent them.”
