Marcelino Quiñonez, a Phoenix educator and non-profit leader, was appointed to the vacant Arizona House of Representatives seat for Legislative District 27 on Wednesday.

Quiñonez replaces Democrat Diego Rodriguez, who resigned last month because he is running for state attorney general in 2022. Quiñonez was scheduled to be sworn in Thursday morning.

He was the last of 11 legislative replacements selected by county boards since the end of the last session, nine in the House and two in the Senate, following a wave of resignations and the death of Rep. Frank Pratt.

The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors picked Quiñonez out of three candidates submitted by the LD 27 precinct committeemen. Under state law, the potential replacements had to be from the same party as Rodriguez and live in the district.
