Change keeps coming to the Arizona Legislature. Last week Liz Harris’ replacement was named. Maricopa County Supervisors are expected to name a replacement for Raquel Terán shortly, as well.

Andrés Cano announced he’s heading back to school at the end of this session. And Democratic House member Jennifer Pawlik announced she will not be seeking reelection in 2024. 

Pawlik, a former teacher, was elected in 2018 on the Red for Ed wave and has championed school funding increases. 

She joined The Show to talk about why she’s leaving, what she’ll miss — and what she won’t.
