LD 10 House candidate Domingo DeGrazia kickoff “Meet Domingo on Domingo”



    Domingo DeGrazia is a family law attorney, classical guitar player, pilot, and now candidate for LD 10 House. He is the 4th child of legendary Tucson muralist/painter Ted DeGrazia.  “Domingo” means Sunday in Spanish, hence this event is on Sunday, Jan. 21st.

    This will be a 3 way Democratic race in LD 10 House (for 2 seats), with incumbent Kirsten Engel, political newcomer Nikki Lee, and DeGrazia. The other seat in LD 10 is held by Republican Todd Clodfelter.
