Also elected to the leadership team were: Arif Kazmi, first vice chair; Lew Howell, second vice chair; Gloria Daley, secretary; Beth Newman, treasurer; and John Gomez, sergeant at arms.
"The Democratic community in Maricopa County will embrace the opportunity and accept the responsibility to strengthen our grass-roots effort,” Ms. Kennedy said. “Our goal is active, committed Democrats in every neighborhood and precinct in the county.”
