Quezada to run for House District 13 seat
Martin Quezada, '08 alumnus of the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law, plans to run for the Arizona State House of Representatives, according to ASU's student-run newspaper The State Press.
Quezada grew up in a predominantly Hispanic area of the Valley and, if elected, hopes to work on the state's budget deficit "so that we protect our investment in public education." He also hopes to provide a positive role model to young Latino people and motivate them to strive for higher goals. "Latino issues are Arizona issues," Quezada said. "Improving the Latino community will improve the state of Arizona."
Quezada worked as a staff member for five years in the Arizona House of Representatives and Senate and served as president of the Chicano/Latino Law Student Association while attending the College of Law. He recently was chosen by the Arizona Chamber of Commerce for their list of 40 Hispanic Leaders Under 40.
