Four applicants have filed letters for consideration to fill the vacant seat on the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors.
As of the 4 p.m. Wednesday, July 10, deadline, Chris Howard, Steven Irwin, Mary Mallory and Bill Williams had submitted applications.
The seat in District 5 became available with the resignation of Jack Smith who accepted an appointment as Arizona director of the U.S. Department of Agriculture — Rural Development.
A special board of supervisors meeting will be set to select the replacement, possibly at 9 a.m. Monday, July 15, said Phil Bourdon, Yavapai County administrator.
Howard currently manages his own rental properties and teaches tennis at Yavapai College.
Irwin has worked as a Realtor with Arizona Prime Real Estate for the past 10 years.
Mallory currently serves on the Prescott Valley Town Council and is employed at Sprouts.
Williams is a freelance writer, and worked as a paralegal in Prescott, public information officer with the state, and with the U.S. Postal Service in Denver. His letter states he previously ran for county supervisor as a Democrat and has switched back to Republican.
Comments on the applicants will be accepted until noon, Friday, July 12, at the board of supervisors office, 1015 Fair St., Prescott; or by email to Kim Kapin, Clerk of the Board, at firstname.lastname@example.org. The appointment is effective until the next election in 2020.
