February 06, 2014

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Legislature will finally be back at full strength after the swearing-in of its newest member.

Demion Clinco is set to be sworn in Thursday afternoon at the Capitol as one of two representatives from Legislative District 2 in Tucson. Clinco is a historic preservation activist who serves on the Tucson-Pima County Historic Commission and the board of the Center for Desert Archaeology. Pima County supervisors appointed Clinco Tuesday.

The House vacancy was created when the supervisors appointed then-Rep. Andrea Dalessandro to fill a Senate vacancy. That vacancy was created by Sen. Linda Lopez's resignation on Jan. 13.
