All five seats on the Pima County Board of Supervisors appear on the ballot. Only two supervisors are running for reelection, guaranteeing the board will comprise at least three newcomers to the position. We spoke to departing supervisors Betty Villegas and Ramón Valadez about their time in office and what advice they have for first-term supervisors.
Aside from supervisors, Pima County has a number of other key posts on the ballot. That includes sheriff, treasurer and county recorder to name a few. We discussed the attention on local races with the Arizona Daily Star’s Sarah Garrecht Gassen and the Green Valley News/Sahuarita Sun’s Dan Shearer.
