Another lawmaker has been appointed to serve in the Arizona Legislature.

On Wednesday, the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors appointed Charles Lucking to serve in Legislative District 5, filling a vacancy from former legislator Amish Shah. According to a press release from the Arizona House Democrats, Lucking is a fourth-generation Arizona native who is employed by Community Legal Services.

Lucking said, “I’m very excited and honored to be representing LD 5 in the legislature. Arizona is facing a mountain of very complex challenges, such as our housing crisis. I’m eager to get started doing the hard work as a servant of the people to implement real solutions for all Arizonans.”

Bill Gates, the District 3 Supervisor on the Maricopa County Board wrote, “Charles Lucking is not only a long-time resident of LD-5, he is also a fifth generation Arizonan with a deep commitment to serving his community. When interviewing him, it was clear that he will be laser-focused on creating more affordable housing and addressing the budget deficit head on.”

Arizona House Democratic Leader Lupe Contreras added, “With the appointment of Charles Lucking, Arizona and our caucus has gained a passionate champion who is committed to use his legal expertise to address pressing social issues, including the housing crisis and environmental conservation. Deep roots and unwavering dedication to service, advocacy, and community empowerment will make Representative Lucking an impactful addition to our caucus.”

Lucking was sworn in to the State House of Representatives on Thursday.
