Pinal County chooses a new District 2 supervisor

FLORENCE, Ariz. (AP) — The Pinal County Board of Supervisors has chosen Clark L. Smithson to be the new supervisor for District 2.

Smithson will be sworn in as a supervisor soon. He will represent the district that covers Apache Junction, San Tan Valley, Queen Valley and parts of Florence and Queen Creek.

Smithson replaces Bryan Martyn, who resigned his seat April 30 to accept the position of Arizona State Parks director.

Smithson currently is a city councilman in Apache Junction and will resign that position to take the oath of county supervisor.

But Smithson says he won’t be a candidate in November’s election for county supervisor.

He says he plans to fill the remainder of the current term expiring in January, then run again next spring for the Apache Junction City Council.
