Patterson successor appointed

This morning, the Pima County Board of Supervisors appointed attorney Nicholas Fontana to the Arizona House of Representatives filling the Legislative District 29 seat vacated when Daniel Patterson resigned  in the wake of the House Ethics committee recommendation he be expelled.

Besides his law practice, Fontana serves as a Judge Pro Tem for the Tohono O'odham Tribal Court.

Fontana was selected on a 3-2 vote after Supervisor Ramon Valadez' nomination of union official Leon Sierra (International Brotherhood of Operating Engineers) was defeated 2-3. Supervisor Sharon Bronson then nominated Fontana, with Supervisors Ann Day and Raymond Carroll voting Aye and Valadez (along with Richard Elias) voting Nay.
