Kromko Is Back!

Posted By on Mon, May 24, 2010 at 8:50 AM

Heeeee's back! Former state lawmaker John Kromko, last seen trying to defeat the one-cent temporary sales tax that voters approved last week, has filed to run for an Arizona House of Representatives seat in Legislative District 27.

Kromko lost a bid for a House seat in LD 27 in 2008 and ended up getting indicted because prosecutors charged that he had forged signatures on his nominating petitions. Kromko tells us the case is still alive while prosecutors appeal a ruling as to whether the charges need to be reviewed by a grand jury.

It's a crowded race in LD 27, which includes the university area and Tucson's west side. Incumbent Democrats Olivia Cajero-Bedford and Phil Lopes have both hit their term limits, leaving more than a half-dozen other Democrats to seek the office. Besides Kromko, you've got Bob Gilby, Sami Hamed, Dustin Curtis Cox, John Martin Bernal, Sally Ann Gonzales, Eric Carbajal Bustamante and Macario Saldate.
