Diné woman appointed to vacant seat in Arizona Legislature

Jasmine Blackwater-Nygren, Diné, will serve as a state representative for Arizona’s district seven, filling a pivotal vacant seat in the state’s Legislature.

The Apache County Board of Supervisors selected her for the position at a special meeting Tuesday to fill the vacancy left by former state Rep. Arlando Teller, Diné, who resigned last month to accept a position in the Biden administration.

The new legislator will be sworn in on Thursday morning at the Arizona State Capitol in Phoenix. 

Blackwater-Nygren, 25, received her law degree from Arizona State University and passed the Arizona bar exam last year. She is also a graduate of Stanford University.

“I thank the Apache County Board of Supervisors for entrusting me with this duty,” Blackwater-Nygren said. “I’m really excited to work with everybody in this district. I’m ready to get to work and will do my best to represent all people of Arizona’s Legislative District 7.”
