Steve Muratore at the Arizona Eagletarian blog has the news on the Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission (AIRC). Redistricting — Cid Kallen appointed by House Minority Leader:
This afternoon, House Minority Leader Chad Campbell appointed Yuma attorney and US Marine Corps veteran Cid Kallen to the fill the vacant seat on the Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission.
Kallen was founding president of the Hispanic Law Students Association
at the Phoenix School of Law. He now serves on the board of directors
for the Los Abogados Hispanic Bar Association.
There is still no word on a ruling in Harris v AIRC,
a federal lawsuit challenging the legislative district map used for the
2012 election cycle in Arizona. When the Harris ruling is made, if it
requires any changes to the map, Kallen will get his feet wet and will
have a say in those changes.
Good luck to Mr. Kallen, he is going to need it.
