The Arizona Daily Star’s editorial board endorsed Maria Garcia, former State Senator (and widow of the late LD 27 State Senator Jorge Garcia) to the District 3 PCC Governing Board, and Debi Chess Mabie, former Executive Director of the Arts Foundation for Tucson and Southern Arizona to District 5 of the same board.
Both incumbents in that race Sylvia Lee (District 3) and Luis A. Gonzales (District 5) are not seeking re-election, after serving one six year term.
But also running for these 2 nonpartisan seats are former 2 term PCC Board member Sherryn “Vikki” Marshall for District 3 and Luis L. Gonzales, former Pascua Yaqui Tribal Council member and husband of LD 3 Senator-elect Sally Gonzales, for District 5. It is confusing with both the incumbent and candidate in District 5 having basically the same name.
Maria Garcia was briefly appointed in Oct. 2010 to serve out her husband’s term in the State Senate, in LD 27.
