Phoenix - The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors has filled the open seat in the Arizona State House. Supervisors appointed Quantá Crews to fill the vacancy in Legislative District 26 vacated when they appointed Rep. Flavio Bravo to the Arizona Senate.
Crews is an experienced real estate appraiser who has been actively involved in the community including as 2nd Vice Chair on the LD-26 Board and as an ordained minister.
Legislative District 26 covers a portion of West Phoenix and part of Glendale. It starts at 19th Avenue west to 51st Avenue, and from Van Buran Street in the south to Peoria Avenue in the north. It’s part of Supervisorial District 5, represented by Supervisor Steve Gallardo.
As required by law, the Board selected Crews from a list of three candidates submitted by the Legislative District 26 Precinct Committeemen (PC). The candidates had to live in the district and be a member of the same party as the person who vacated the office. In this case, a Democrat.
“Once again, the PC’s from District 26 provided three strong candidates for our consideration,” said Supervisor Steve Gallardo. “Reverend Crews has made it clear she understands the needs of central west Phoenix and as a mother of three she's committed to making this community better for the next generation."
Crews will serve through 2024. The next election for seats in the Arizona House will be the 2024 General Election.
