Rotellini, Slugocki match likely

The chairwoman of the Arizona Democratic Party is stepping down from her post because she will no longer be eligible to hold the position.
Alexis Tameron has served as party chairwoman since January 2015, and has helped recruit and retain Democrats, raise money and shape the party’s platform in Arizona and nationally. She was overwhelmingly re-elected to the post earlier this year.

Her departure is tied to the sale of her home: She is moving from her current legislative district, and therefore will be abandoning her seat as a precinct committee person and state committee member in Legislative District 26. According to the party’s bylaws, she said in an email to party activists, she will no longer be eligible to remain chairwoman.
