Schapira Picks McNulty for Independent Redistricting Commission

Posted By on Tue, Feb 15, 2011 at 3:07 PM

State Sen. David Schapira makes his pick for the Independent Redistricting Commission: Linda McNulty of Tucson.

McNulty is married to Michael McNulty, who has been the campaign chair for Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. So if Sen. Russell Pearce's pick, Rick Stertz, is going to be looking out for Republican Jesse Kelly's interests, we imagine that McNulty will be looking out for Giffords—assuming that Giffords makes a recovery that allows her to run for Congress (and that Giffords doesn't instead choose to run for U.S. Senate if she's healthy enough to return to politics—and desires to do so).

The four members of the Independent Redistricting Commission will now choose a fifth member, who must be a political independent.

Here's the press release from Schapira:

Senate Minority Leader David Schapira announced today that he has selected Linda McNulty to serve on the Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission.

“Linda McNulty is an exceptionally well qualified candidate, and Arizonans will be well-served by her appointment to the Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission,” said Schapira. “We were fortunate to have many great candidates from which to choose. Linda has a sharp legal mind, has traveled throughout Arizona and will dedicate herself to creating Congressional and Legislative districts that both give voters a choice in general elections and protect communities of interest.”

McNulty, a Tucson resident and partner at the law firm of Lewis and Roca, earned a B.S. in Nursing from the University of Rochester and a J.D. from the University of Arizona. McNulty has been practicing law for nearly 25 years and focuses her work in the areas of real estate, financing, business transactions and natural resources law.

McNulty serves her community as the Director of the Pima County Sports and Tourism Authority, the President-elect of the Tucson Chapter of Commercial Real Estate Women and as a member of the Board of Directors of the Arizona Center for Law in the Public Interest.
