County supervisors from across Arizona have established a county policy agenda for the upcoming legislative session.
“It is vital for state leaders to know what tools county officials need to do our job so that we can work together to save taxpayer dollars, maintain our roadways, and improve public safety,” Maricopa County Supervisor Clint Hickman said. Hickman is president of the County Supervisors Association.
Arizona’s counties have lost $495 million in state funding since 2008, according to Craig Sullivan, executive director of the County Supervisors Association.
