TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Thousands of constituents in Southern Arizona have a new state senator.

Today the Pima County Board of Supervisors named state representative Andrea Dalessandro of Green Valley to the District 2 Senate seat.

She was one of three nominees chosen by district Democrats last weekend.

Dalessandro replaced Linda Lopez, who resigned last week after 13 years in the legislature to take a job with Easter Seals.

Once Dalessandro moves to the Senate, district Democrats and supervisors will choose her replacement in the house.

Her new Senate district runs from southern Tucson to Nogales and includes all of Santa Cruz County.
