Supervisors to consider county attorney finalists

The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors will meet Friday to consider the four finalists for the vacant Maricopa County attorney’s post.

A citizens’ committee narrowed down a field of 13 applicants to four finalists on Thursday.

The finalists are Chandler Mayor Boyd Dunn, former County Attorney Rick Romley and attorneys Andrew Pacheco and Cleve Lynch.

It’s unclear whether supervisors will appoint a new top county prosecutor on Friday or whether they will do so next week.

The post became vacant after County Attorney Andrew Thomas resigned last week to run for state attorney general.

In the fall, voters will decide who will fill the final two years of Thomas’ term.
