PHOENIX – Democrat Sarah Liguori will fill a vacant seat in the Arizona House of Representatives, the Maricopa County Supervisory Board ruled on October 18.
Liguori will occupy the seat in District 28 previously held by Aaron Lieberman, a Democrat who resigned to focus on his campaign for governor.
Liguori, 38 years old Tucson native, worked in financial planning and commercial real estate. She is running in next year’s election to retain the seat. The 28th arrondissement of Phoenix of the North and Paradise Valley is the most competitive in the state, although the boundaries change during the ongoing redistribution process.
âI loved living in the Legislative District and I’m proud of the work we’ve done to elect extraordinary Democrats,â Liguori said in a statement. “I look forward to this opportunity and strive to bring positive change to all people in Arizona.”
Maricopa County Supervisor Bill Gates, a Republican, said in a statement that Liguori was distinguished by his background in the private sector and “an eye on the future of our state.”
