#NATIVEVOTE16 – PRESS RELEASE: Steele to resign from state House seat


After a great deal of thoughtful consideration, I have decided to resign my seat in the Arizona House of Representatives in order to deepen my commitment to the people of southern Arizona on a broader level and focus my efforts full-time on my campaign for Arizona’s Second Congressional District.

This was not an easy decision for me.  A lot of people worked hard to help me get elected to Legislative District 9 not only once, but twice, and I am grateful for all of your support and devotion over the years.  I have poured my heart and soul into representing the people of this district without regard for politics, race, gender, or economic status.  I believe that being a strong representative means working with members of both parties, and I have sought to uphold that philosophy throughout my service in the legislature.

No one does this work alone, and I have had the privilege of working side-by-side with the most amazing Democratic leaders in the State House and Senate.  We fought some good fights and we even won a few.  Most of all, we stood tall together for our shared Arizona values of freedom, justice and equality, and we were a consistent, clear voice for you at the legislature.   

Stay tuned for exciting news on my congressional race in the upcoming weeks.

Together, let’s move southern Arizona forward,

Victoria Steele for Congress
