Republican Precinct Committeemen select Sylvia Allen to fill Senate vacancy on ballot

PHOENIX - Saturday, the Republican Precinct Committeemen of Legislative District Six met in Flagstaff to fill the vacancy on the ballot left by the passing of Senator Chester Crandell on Aug. 4.  

Sylvia Allen, who was elected to the Navajo County Board of Supervisors in 2012, was elected as the Republican nominee for the Arizona Senate, and her name will appear on the general election ballot in November.

"We were saddened by the loss of Senator Crandell, but we have confidence in Sylvia Allen's proven ability as a former senator and a county supervisor," said Robert Graham, Chairman of the Arizona Republican Party.  "Sylvia's popularity among voters also means we have an excellent chance that this seat will continue to contribute to the Republican majority in the state senate."

Legislative District Six (map) consists of portions of Coconino, Yavapai, Gila and Navajo Counties.  The meeting was conducted by Joy Staveley, Chairman of the Coconino County Republican Committee as Coconino County holds the largest geographic share of the legislative district.

Allen, of Snowflake, served the Arizona Senate from 2008 to 2012.
