Clint Hickman, the newly-elected chairman of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, said county government’s job in the coming year will be to make Maricopa County a place “where prosperity lasts and democracy flourishes.”
At the annual “Passing of the Gavel” ceremony, Mr. Hickman said his primary focus will be on the 2020 election cycle.
“The integrity and success of our elections is my #1 priority in 2020,” Mr. Hickman said. “Because of our partnership with the Recorder’s Office, we will have bipartisan oversight of elections not seen in Maricopa County in more than 50 years. In addition, the Board has invested millions of dollars to make sure we have the right personnel and updated equipment to allow people to have the voting experience they want and deserve.”
