Controversies

Residency challenge

Following his swearing-in, Begay's residency was called into question by Rep. Albert Hale (D), who had sought appointment to the District 7 seat. Earlier in 2013, during confirmation to the Industrial Development Authority Board, Begay told the Arizona State Legislature that he resided in Gilbert in Maricopa County. On July 22, 2013, Begay changed his voter registration to Ganado in Apache County. The Arizona Constitution requires that a legislator be a resident of the county he or she is elected from for "at least one year" prior. State law also requires that appointed legislators must live in the same district and carry the same party affiliation as the legislator being replaced. In September 2013, the chairman of the Apache County Board of Supervisors told county attorneys not to mount a formal legal challenge.[2][3]
