Statement on DOJ charges against Rep. Arredondo

STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX - Senate Democratic Leader David Schapira today called for Representative Ben Arredondo (LD 17) to resign from his seat in the Arizona House of Representatives.
“In the interests of our constituents, Rep. Arredondo should immediately resign to ensure that those in our community have unabridged representation. The Department of Justice allegations against him are deeply troubling and, whether he is guilty or innocent, will pose too great a distraction for him to fulfill the duties of his office. Arizonans expect and deserve more from their elected officials. Sadly, this is another reminder of why we need more ethics reforms at all levels of government and leaders who are willing to uphold them.”
Sen. Schapira has represented Legislative District 17 since his election in 2006. District 17 includes most of Tempe and South Scottsdale.
