Sarah Liguori of Phoenix has been selected to replace LD 28 House member Aaron Lieberman, who resigned last month to run for governor.

Sarah Liguori, a manager at a commercial real estate firm, is the newest member of the Arizona House of Representatives for a district that includes north central Phoenix and Paradise Valley. 

The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors unanimously appointed Liguori as a representative of Legislative District 28 on Monday.

Liguori will replace Democrat Aaron Lieberman, who resigned last month to run for governor. By law, the supervisors had to appoint someone from the same political party as the departing lawmaker. Lieberman won reelection to his seat in November, and Liguori will serve out the rest of his term through 2022.

Bill Gates, the Republican chair of the five-member board, and Steve Gallardo, the board’s only Democrat, praised Liguori in short statements before the vote.

“Sarah has really come across as someone who really wants to advocate for her district … and to come up with public policy that is good for the entire state,” Gallardo said.

Liguori did not immediately return a phone message or email seeking comment on her appointment.
