Now that they have said their goodbyes to their Gilbert colleague, the remaining four members of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors have begun digging into the applications from 13 East Valley Republicans eager to finish the remain two years of Denny Barney’s term.
During his final official meeting as a supervisor, Barney thanked everyone from his staff to his family and friends who attended his final board meeting.
“Life is about dreams and one of mine was to serve in elected office,” said Barney. “I arrived at Maricopa County thinking I knew how it should work. But I had a lot to learn and I love being a part of a team working to improve people’s lives.”
Barney stepped down last Friday to focus on his position as president/CEO of the East Valley Partnership, a consortium of government, business and community leaders who advocate for economic development, education and other major issues in the region.
