The Pinal County Board of Supervisors expressed its support for hiring an elections director with superlative qualifications and experience, including planning, organizing and executing a major election in either a leadership or consulting role.
Supervisor Jeff McClure, R-Eagle Crest Ranch, said Wednesday that with the scrutiny elections are undergoing now, that’s a great idea. Supervisor Jeff Serdy, R-Apache Junction, said Maricopa County is experiencing an election recount “mess” in a place where the county recorder appointed the elections director.
“I’m glad this board has the responsibility to fill this, to prevent there from being partisanship. … and make sure they’re absolutely qualified. Let’s not be like places that have problems, and let’s prevent problems in the future,” Serdy said.
