Financial planner chosen to fill Democratic House vacancy


PHOENIX – Democrat Sarah Liguori will take a vacant seat in the Arizona House of Representatives, the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors ruled on Monday.

Liguori will occupy the District 28 seat previously held by Aaron Lieberman, a Democrat who stepped down to focus on his campaign for governor.

Liguori, a 38-year-old Tucson native, has worked in financial planning and commercial real estate. She is running in next year’s election to retain the seat. The 28th District of North Phoenix and Paradise Valley is the most competitive in the state, although the boundaries are changing during the ongoing redistribution process.

“I loved living in the Legislative District and I’m proud of the work we’ve done to elect amazing Democrats,” Liguori said in a statement. “I look forward to this opportunity and strive to bring positive change to everyone 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.”
