FLORENCE — Three outgoing supervisors were given a dignified sendoff, including a video tribute, during the final meeting of the Pinal County Board of Supervisors on Wednesday.
Chairman Anthony Smith had announced his retirement earlier in the year, while Todd House of District 5 and Pete Rios of District 1 lost their primary and general elections, respectively.
Councilmembers and colleagues expressed appreciation for the work they had done while in office.
“We’ve had differences but our common ground has always been for the best interests of this county,” said District 2 Supervisor Michael Goodman. “I love the three of you and I appreciate what a privilege it’s been for me to serve with you.”
