Former Senate President Steve Pierce has made a reluctant return to the Capitol in the wake of David Stringer’s sudden resignation from the House on Wednesday amid revelations of sex offenses in Baltimore decades ago.

Yavapai supervisors Sunday appointed Pierce, who said his only interest is in serving through the remainder of Stringer’s term. He received 71 votes.

Pierce said he did not volunteer himself but rather was asked to step up by the precinct committeemen.

“I told them that I didn’t want to go down there, that I’ve been there and done that, but that I would do it to help in any way I could until the next election,” he said.

Yavapai County District 5 Supervisor Jack Smith said Pierce served the district well when he was in the Legislature from 2009 to 2017, and said he’s confident Pierce could get back to work quickly.
