Kelty tops votes for Kirkpatrick replacement

Flagstaff city council member Kara Kelty was the top vote getter last night, as the Coconino County LD2 Democratic PCs met to choose three individuals whose names will now go to the Board of Supervisors for the final decision on who will replace Ann Kirkpatrick in the state legislature (whew! that was quite a sentence).

State party vice-chair Tony Gonzales and former county supervisor Tom Chabin were also selected. Former county Helen Hudgens Ferrell came in 4th and is now out of the running.

Kelty was a leader for the Prop. 203 (First Things First) effort in northern Arizona last fall, and is also known for her strong environmental advocacy. City council members Karen Cooper and Al White were in attendance to show their support for their colleague.
