Making History in Maricopa County

History was made in Maricopa County on November 8, 2016 with the election of 6 Democrats to countywide offices:

  • Paul Penzone won the race for Sheriff
  • Adrian Fontes is our new County Recorder
  • Alexandra Muller Arboleda, Ben Graff, and Jim Holway won countywide seats on the Central Arizona Water Conservation District (CAWCD) Board
  • Dr. Linda Thor was elected to the Maricopa County Community College District (MCCCD) Board to the countywide at-large seat

We ran 9 candidates for countywide office, and 6 of those 9 candidates won!

We’ve never had 6 Democrats win countywide office in living memory. We’ve ended one-party rule here — and we congratulate all our elected candidates and thank all our candidates for running.

MCDP’s volunteers called over 1 million voters and knocked on over half a million doors to make this victory for our Democratic candidates in Maricopa County possible. Thank you!

Now that the 2016 election is over, we want to keep up the momentum and continue to WIN!  Together, let’s continue to make history and make life better for the people of Maricopa County and Arizona!
