Marking the second appointment of the second cycle for Arizona's voter mandated Independent Redistricting Commission, House Democratic Leader Chad Campbell today announced selection of Jose Herrera. Mr. Herrera is a native Arizonan, born in San Luis, holds bachelor's and master's degrees from Northern Arizona University and is currently Director of Member Services for the Arizona Society of Certified Public Accountants.
In his statement marking the appointment, Rep. Campbell said, "Mr. Herrera will serve our state proudly. He will fight for legislative and congressional maps that represent the great diversity of our state, provide fairness and transparency to both the urban and rural areas of our state, and, perhaps most importantly, allow the voters of Arizona to have real choices when they go to the ballot box over the next decade."
Next up, Arizona Senate President Russell Pearce, who now has one week to make his selection.
