Who will lead Arizona into the future?

That’s the question you’ll answer with your ballot when you select a candidate to represent you at the state capitol in Phoenix.

Legislative District 23 encompasses South Yuma County. 

No primary this year for the Arizona State Senate, Democrat Brian Fernandez will face Republican Gary Garcia Snyder in the Nov. 8 general election.

The district won’t see a GOP primary either, the sole qualifier Josh Pembleton dropped out.

So, this year it comes down to the Democrats with community activist and South County native Jesus Lugo and Goodyear paralegal Mariana Sandoval running.

District 25 serves the northern part of Yuma County.

Its sitting senator, Republican Sine Kerr is running unopposed.

There will be no Democratic primary for the state house, but incumbent representatives Tim Dunn and Joel John do face a challenger – west Valley businessman Michael Carbone.
