Meet the Two New Arizona Republican Legislators, Teresa Martinez and Neal Carter

The Pinal County Board of Supervisors has appointed Neal Carter as Representative for District 8 to serve the remaining term left by Frank Pratt's passing, and Teresa Martinez as Representative for District 11 to serve the remaining term left by Bret Roberts' resignation.

With the passing away of Rep. Frank Pratt (R-Casa Grande) and the resignation of Rep. Bret Roberts (R-Maricopa), the Pinal County Supervisors have chosen two new legislators to replace them. The five-member board chose them at a meeting on October 27.

Teresa Martinez will replace Roberts representing LD 11, which is located between Phoenix and Tucson. She described herself to The Arizona Sun Times as “A pro-life, pro-gun, back the blue, protect our border, love America, protect our elections through election integrity conservative.” She said, “I am not going to trample on your freedom, but I don’t want you to trample on mine or anyone else’s.”
