The Pima County Board of Supervisors today appointed Demion Clinco to fill a vacant state House seat.
The vote was 3-2.
Clinco, 33, replaces Andrea Dalessandro who moved to the Arizona Senate last month following the retirement of Linda Lopez.
No date has been set for Clinco to take the oath of office as the new representative from state Legislative District 2.
"The Board of Supervisors has selected a worthy public servant to represent Southern Arizona in the House of Representatives," Don Jorgensen, the chair of the Pima County Democratic Party, said in a news release Tuesday.
Clinco is President of the Tucson Historic Preservation Foundation Board and CEO of Frontier Consulting Group. He also serves on the Tucson-Pima County Historic Commission and the board of the Center for Desert Archeology. He has a bachelor's degree in art history from Occidental College in Los Angeles, the release said.
