Supervisor Smith elected vice president of County Supervisors Association

Pinal County Supervisor Anthony Smith was unanimously elected by his colleagues as the first vice president of the County Supervisors Association of Arizona at the Nov. 19 meeting of the CSA Board of Directors.

“This is a wonderful honor,” Supervisor Smith said in a press release. “I am looking forward to representing my fellow supervisors in this vital organization and look forward to working on behalf of counties throughout the state as the legislature begins its new session in January.”

CSA is a non-partisan, nonprofit 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 is a dedicated public servant whose experience and commitment to local government make him an exceptional representative of Arizona counties,” outgoing CSA President Clint Hickman said in the release. “His selection as first vice president reflects the trust and confidence that his fellow supervisors have in him.”
