Ken Bennett angles for Maricopa County elections job

By Rebekah L. Sanders | The Republic

Maricopa County supervisors say Democratic Recorder Adrian Fontes will be involved in any decisions about the future of the elections department.

Former Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett is hoping for a job with Maricopa County, but only if county officials take elections authority away from Recorder Adrian Fontes, the newly elected Democrat.

County officials don’t seem keen on the idea.

Bennett, a Republican, called members of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors recently with a pitch, according to officials: If the supervisors split off the elections department from the Recorder’s Office, they could appoint him elections director and have him report directly to the board.
