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!
