Mayor-elect Regina Romero makes history by becoming the first woman and Latina mayor of Tucson
Washington, D.C. — Congratulating Mayor-elect Regina Romero on her historic victory tonight, Latino Victory Fund Executive Director Mayra Macías issued the following statement:
“Councilwoman Regina Romero shattered one glass ceiling when she became the first Latina elected to the Tucson City Council, and now she’s broken yet another one by becoming Tucson’s first woman and first Latina mayor. Her groundbreaking election is a testament of who she is as a leader and all the incredible things she’ll accomplish for the people of Tucson as their new mayor.
Macias added: “Latino Victory Fund was proud to support Regina Romero this election. With 2020 right around the corner and Arizona becoming a battleground state, her voice and leadership will be critical for Democrats’ victory next November. We look forward to working with Regina and Democrats up and down the ballot to make sure we flip Arizona blue.”
