Two Pima Community College Governing Bd. seats (nonpartisan, volunteer) are up for election in the General Election of  Nov. 6, 2018. Both incumbents are not seeking re-election: District 3 Sylvia Lee and District 5 Luis A.  Gonzales.


District 3 candidates: Maria Garcia, wife of former LD 27 State Senator Jorge Garcia (she was appointed to his seat after his death in office in 2010), and former PCC Board member Vikki Marshall (served 2 terms, 2000 – 2012 in District 3).

Marshall’s website:

Running for District 5 seat is Debi Chess Mabie, formerly with Arts Foundation of Tucson/Southern Arizona and the Loft Cinema, against Luis L. Gonzales, husband of LD 3 Rep. Sally Gonzales (who recently won the LD 3 Senate race). It is a bit confusing with both men (the incumbent and the candidate)  having the same name in this District.

Chess Mabie’s website:

Vote wisely on or before Nov. 6, 2018.
