Panel to consider county attorney applicants

A citizens’ committee will meet Wednesday to consider the 13 people who have applied to become Maricopa County’s top prosecutor.

The panel will make recommendations to the Board of Supervisors, which will ultimately pick the successor of former County Attorney Andrew Thomas. Thomas resigned to run for attorney general.

Supervisors will meet Friday to consider a report by the committee.

Until a replacement is picked, Chief Deputy County Attorney Phil MacDonnell is running the county attorney’s office.

Applicants include MacDonnell, former County Attorney Rick Romley, Chandler Mayor Boyd Dunn, former county attorney candidate Andrew Pacheco and current deputy county attorneys Bill Montgomery and Cleve Lynch.
