Bryan Martyn, former District 2 supervisor of Pinal County, has a court date next month in Florence for a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge, but for him, it can’t be finished soon enough.

The charge stemmed from an altercation Martyn had with Christopher White at the Anthem Spring Festival, held at Anthem Community Park in Florence on March 10. Martyn and White were charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct by Florence town attorney James Mannato after the incident.

After a change of venue request was granted for White, his case went to Casa Grande Municipal Court and was dismissed.

Martyn also requested a change of venue due to his assertion the Florence Town Council has undue influence over the court system because of its ability to hire and fire the town attorney and the judge presiding over Martyn’s case.

The judge, Katherine Kaiser, denied Martyn’s change of venue request Aug. 1, although she granted White’s request in May.

Martyn resigned as county supervisor effective April 30 to begin his new job as director of Arizona State Parks on May 1.
