An allegation of electioneering against Pinal County Supervisor Cheryl Chase may result in an investigation by the Arizona Attorney General’s office, but the supervisor said during a phone interview Jan. 23 she has done nothing wrong.

Supervisor Chase represents District 2, an area in north-central Pinal County that includes San Tan Valley. She first took office in November 2013, was selected board chairwoman by her fellow supervisors Jan. 7 of this year, and is eligible to run for reelection in November 2016, Joe Pyritz, the county’s interim communications manager, said during a phone interview Jan. 20.

The allegations by San Tan Valley resident Jeffrey Kramer stem from Ms. Chase’s participation in a holiday parade conducted Dec. 6 in San Tan Valley. During the event, Ms. Chase rode on a float built and manned by the Pinal County Public Works department. A banner displaying her name, title and the website address “chase4supervisor.com” was attached to the front of a piece of public works equipment.
