Paul Penzone, former candidate for Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, is supporting Lawrence Robinson for Phoenix City Council's District 8 seat.

The race promises to be interesting, if not contentious.

Robinson is vying to represent South Phoenix against Kate Gallego and Pastor Warren Stewart -- all candidates with impressive resumes.

But Penzone, along with Rise of South Phoenix, the grassroots team who fought that tough (but unsuccessful) battle against Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Apraio in November are backing Robinson.

They're making their support official tonight during a community discussion about public safety in South Phoenix.

Joseph Larios, a community organizer who also works for the Maricopa County Democratic Party, is running Robinson's campaign. Larious organized Team Awesome, a group of mostly undocumented youth brought to the U.S. as children (DREAMers) and students, that led Councilman Daniel Valenzuela to victory in Phoenix City Council District 5 in 2011.
