Thomas Galvin seeks to retain Maricopa County supervisor seat in East Valley

By Sasha Hupka | Arizona Republic

In the East Valley, a battle is underway over a Maricopa County supervisor position.

Just one seat is up for grabs in the Aug. 2 election, but the race to control conservative-leaning District 2 could disrupt the Board of Supervisors’ unified stance on election integrity and foreshadow what other supervisors may face in 2024.

Four Republicans — and no Democrats — are running to represent the vast district, which encompasses Carefree, Cave Creek, Fountain Hills, the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community and much of Scottsdale and Mesa, as well as parts of Apache Junction, Gilbert, Paradise Valley and east Phoenix.

Incumbent Tom Galvin of Phoenix, a land use attorney, is seeking to keep the spothe was appointed to last year.

Also vying for the seat are:

  • Doug Little of Scottsdale, a former member of the Arizona Corporation Commission who recently spent time in Washington, DC, at the Department of Energy.
  • Gail Golec of Scottsdale, a realtor who has spread election conspiracy theories and made numerous unproven allegations of widespread fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
  • Thayer Verschoor of Gilbert, a former state lawmaker who was appointed to the Department of Veterans’ Affairs by former President Donald Trump. Verschoor has echoed false allegations that there was widespread fraud in Arizona during the 2020 presidential election.
  • Whoever wins the upcoming election will serve until January 2025.
