PHOENIX – The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors will seek applicants for appointment to District 2 Supervisor starting next week. On Tuesday, the Board accepted the resignation of current District 2 Supervisor Steve Chucri who plans to vacate the position on November 5, 2021.
Chucri resigned from the Board after he was caught sharing his opinion as to why his fellow supervisors were deliberately blocking an audit of the 2020 Maricopa County General Election. [RELATED ARTICLE: Maricopa County Supervisor Chucri Resigns After Recording Reveals Audit Outcome Fears]
In the recording of the March conversation Chucri revealed to Shelby Busch, one of the founders of the pro-audit group, We The People, that his fellow supervisors feared an audit. Chucri said, “Gates got scared because he barely won, and Jack got scared because he only won by 200 votes, and if there was an audit and a recount, which is pretty bullshit by the way, what would happen in those two races?”
To qualify for appointment as the new District 2 Supervisor, you must:
- Be registered to vote in District 2 when you submit the application
- Be a member of the same political party as the person vacating (Republican)
The appointee will serve in this position until the person elected in the November 2022 General Election is sworn in.
Applicants should send their letters of interest along with a resume to:
Clerk of the Board of Supervisors
301 W. Jefferson, 7th Floor
Phoenix, AZ 85003
or email to email@example.com
Applications will be accepted from October 18, 2021 until 5:00 p.m. Monday, November 8, 2021. All documents filed with the Clerk’s Office will become public records. Applicants are subject to a background check.
The applicant will serve as a placeholder until the County holds a special election in 2022 to fill the District 2 seat until Chucri’s term officially expires in 2024.
