August 25th, 2010

Former state representative Jack Jackson Jr. has won the Democratic party’s primary for nomination to the Arizona state Senate. According to the Victory Fund:

In 2005, Jackson was appointed by Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano as the Executive Director of the Arizona Commission of Indian Affairs. In April 2000, he was appointed by Secretary Donna Shalala to serve on President Clinton’s Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS. Jack serves on the Navajo Nation Gaming Enterprise Board and the Obama Administration has selected him to once again serve on the President’s Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS.

There are no Republican challengers in the race to represent the Northern Arizona district covering the Navajo Nation and Flagstaff.

Congratulations Mr. Jackson. Now, along with Kristen Synema, we effectively have two openly GLBT Senators in the AZ State Senate. (I don’t believe Ken Cheuveront (sp?) is still in the AZ Senate.)
