2018 Arizona List Governing Bd. Endorsements for Southern AZ


Carolyn’s note: Adelita Grijalva is a 4 term incumbent on the TUSD Governing Board, and Leila Counts is a political newcomer/teacher running for a position on the same board. Adelita is one of CD 3 Congressman Raul Grijalva’s daughters.

Debi Chess Mabie is seeking her first term on the District 5 Governing Bd. of Pima Community College (open seat as incumbent Luis Gonzales is not running for re-election).

Incumbent Eva Carrillo Dong and political newcomer Consuelo Hernandez have apparently won their seats on the Sunnyside School District Governing Bd. Consuelo is a younger sister of LD 2 Rep. Daniel Hernandez Jr. (up for re-election) and their other sister Alma is  running for LD 2 House. Congratulations to Eva and Consuelo.

Vote wisely on or before Nov. 6, 2018.

  1. I just don’t get it???
    Why would you endorse a person that doesn’t know the community?
    Luis Gonzales a member of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe is running for The Governing Board. He has no ties the Historical Foundation that has donated three Historical Signs to Pima College that serve no purpose for the college.
    Guess who has to pay for the maintenance of these Iconic signs?
    Pima College has lots of funds that it can misuse that is why it is laying off faculty members and purchased the Historical Tucson Inn owned by the Historical Foundation, diverting funds from student services and the College.
    I would expect that our community leaders support candidates that would work in the best interest of the community.

    • Arizona List does not endorse male candidates so would not have endorsed Luis Gonzales (not the incumbent, but has same name) running for PCC Board District 5. They did not endorse either woman candidate running for District 3 PCC Board.
