PHOENIX — Maricopa County Supervisors plan to name a replacement for Rep.
Ruben Gallego next week.
Gallego resigned from the Arizona House of Representatives last week. He’s
running for the 7th Congressional District seat held by Rep. Ed
Pastor, who is retiring.
Supervisors have named three people to a selection panel that will screen
candidates for consideration. People interested in the seat have until noon
Wednesday to submit their names to the county. The committee will interview
candidates Thursday and then send three names for the board to consider when it
Gallego is a Democrat and represented District 27 in south Phoenix. State law
says nominees must also be Democrats, eligible to vote and live in the district.
