Senator Wendy Rogers Censured

On March 1, 2022, both democrats and republicans in the Arizona legislature joined to censure Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers for comments she made regarding the use of “public gallows” during a speech that she made to the American First Political Action Committee conference days earlier. The Arizona Senate was also concerned about her association with, and support of, the American First organization’s founder, Nick Fuentes. The Arizona Senate believed Fuentes has repeatedly demonstrated antisemitic speech and actions. To review senator Roger’s speech, follow this link Wendy Rogers Full APFAC Speech.

by Fair Maps Arizona in News. Posted July 13, 2021

The Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission has released official draft legislative and congressional district maps.

Public comments to the Independent Redistricting Commission Needed ASAP


The Independent Redistricting Commission is re-drawing Arizona legislative district boundaries based on the new census data from 2020. There are 30 legislative districts in Arizona. Based on census data each district should have a resident population of about 230,000.
