For the first time in 12 years, Maricopa residents are without the leadership of Anthony Smith.

After serving two two-year terms as Maricopa mayor, Smith was elected to the Pinal County Board of Supervisors in 2012, beginning an eight-year run that ended as board chairman. He chose not to run for reelection in November, confident he was leaving the county in a better place than where he found it.

“Our economy in Pinal County was where we lost about 50% overall of employees to go work in another county. We didn’t have the benefit of having a home-based economy,” Smith said. “In 2012, what I campaigned on was turning that around and adding local manufacturing and job growth. We have certainly seen the beginnings of that.”
