Maricopa County Attorney Vacancy Application Deadline Nears

The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors accepted the resignation of Bill Montgomery on September 9 and defined the process for filling the vacancy, which included creating a selection committee.

Applications for review by the committee will be accepted through Wednesday, September 18 at 5:00 p.m.

  • The committee will submit a list of recommendations to the Board on October 1.
  • The Board will choose a new county attorney in the following days or weeks. This choice will be solely at the Board’s discretion and may or may not be one of the recommended candidates.
