Arizona Democratic Party Exec Director Calls on Patterson To Resign

Posted By on Mon, Feb 27, 2012 at 1:48 PM

Luis Heredia, executive director of the Arizona Democratic Party, has followed up the call by Arizona House Democratic leaders for Rep. Daniel Patterson to resign after allegation surfaced this weekend that he had beaten his girlfriend, kicked her out of the home they shared, and stolen her dog.

Heredia's statement:


The impending legal issues that Rep. Patterson faces render him unable to fully serve the voters of Legislative District 29. Therefore, I call on Rep. Daniel Patterson to do what is best for his constituents and resign from office immediately.

I do not call on a sitting Democratic elected official to resign lightly. However, I firmly believe that the voters of Southern Arizona deserve a representative who can serve them without distraction. Rep. Patterson will be accorded his day in court, but that is his personal business, not the business of his Southern Arizona constituents.
