By Mary Jo Pitzl || Arizona Republic

Keely Varvel is Fontes’ first staff pick since he was elected last month. Varvel was the chief deputy when Fontes served as county recorder.

Fontes on Thursday also named a multi-partisan transition team and a business advisory board to guide him as he takes over the state’s top elections post. He officially will take office on Jan. 2, along with other statewide elected officials.
