Yavapai County Supervisor Jack R. Smith was unanimously elected by his colleagues as the Second Vice President of the County Supervisors Association (CSA) at the Nov. 15, meeting of the CSA Board of Directors.

“I am thankful for the support of my colleagues who elected me to this position,” Supervisor Smith said. “I am looking forward to representing my fellow supervisors in this important organization and look forward to working on behalf of counties throughout the state as the legislature begins its new session in January.”

As Second Vice President, Supervisor Smith will serve on the organization’s executive committee, helping to develop plans and implement strategies for strengthening Arizona counties in state and federal policymaking. He will serve as CSA President in 2022.

CSA is a non-partisan research and advocacy organization representing the 61 county supervisors leading Arizona’s 15 counties. For more than 30 years, CSA has served as a forum for county leaders to address important issues facing local constituents and develop a proactive state and federal policy agenda.

Supervisor Smith was also elected to serve on The National Association of Counties (NACo) Agriculture and Rural Affairs Steering Committee. This committee will discuss issues pertaining to USDA agriculture, rural development programs, rural renewable energy development, research and extension, food safety, and conservation programs.

Supervisor Smith said “I am honored to represent Yavapai County on a State and Federal level through both these great organizations, CSA and NACo.”
