The Pima County Supervisory Board appointed state legislator Stephanie Staal Hamilton on Tuesday to fill the 10 seats in the Arizona Senate’s legislative district.
The appointed person resigned from LD 10 last month to replace Kirsten Engle, a state senator who focused on running for the US House of Representatives.
Democrat Stahl Hamilton is a Presbyterian minister who has been a member of the Arizona House of Representatives since January. Her appointment will leave new vacancies in homes that county authorities will have to fill in the near future.
She was one of three candidates selected to fill the State Senate seats held by the LD10 Democratic National Committee. State law requires the county oversight board to select one of these three candidates.
Other candidates included Tom Chavin, a former state legislator and Coconino County overseer, and Larry Wagoner, a Marine Corps veteran who is the second vice-chairman of the LD10 Democratic Party.
Supervisor Rex Scott has moved to appoint Hamilton this week after voting to postpone the selection on October 5 to give him more time to talk to the candidates.
District 1 supervisor chose Stahl Hamilton because “she knows Congressional players and they know her,” although all candidates were qualified at the meeting on Tuesday. Said that.
