Coconino County Supervisor Mandy Metzger was elected by her colleagues as the first vice president of the County Supervisors Association (CSA), at the November 21, 2013, meeting of the CSA Board of Directors.
“This is a tremendous honor,” Supervisor Metzger said. “I am grateful for the opportunity to represent 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.”
Outgoing CSA President Lenore Stuart declared, “Supervisor Metzger is a dedicated public servant whose experience and commitment to local government makes her an exceptional representative of Arizona counties. Her selection as first vice president reflects the trust and confidence that her fellow supervisors have in her.”
As first vice president, Supervisor Metzger will serve on the organization’s executive committee, helping to develop plans and implement strategies for strengthening Arizona counties in state and federal policymaking. She will serve alongside CSA President and Graham County Supervisor Jim Palmer, President-elect and Maricopa County Supervisor Mary Rose Wilcox, Second Vice President and Gila County Supervisor Tommie Cline Martin, Third Vice President and Pinal County Supervisor Anthony Smith, and Immediate Past President and Yuma County Supervisor Lenore Stuart.
CSA is a non-partisan, non-profit 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.
