Election 2012: Nancy Young Wright Forms Exploratory Committee for Board of Supervisors Campaign

Democrat Nancy Young Wright, a former state lawmaker and Amphi School Board member, has taken another step closer to running for the Pima County Board of Supervisors next year for District 1 seat now held by the retiring Supervisor Ann Day.

Potential Republican candidates include Vic Williams, who was Wright's seatmate in LD26 for several years (they don't get along too well); Stuart McDaniel, a mortgage broker who worked on the campaign of unsuccessful congressional candidate Jesse Kelly in 2010; Ally Miller, a Tea Party activist; and Charlie Bowles, vice president of sales and marketing for Diamond Ventures.

Here's the press release from Wright:

Nancy Young Wright has filed an exploratory committee for the office of Pima County Supervisor, District 1. The seat is currently held by Supervisor Ann Day, who is retiring. The election will be held Nov. 6, 2012.

Young Wright served for three years as a state representative for Legislative District 26, which covers 400 square miles in northwest Pima County. During her time in the Legislature, she worked successfully across the aisle on bipartisan bills involving foster care, local fire districts, law enforcement and animal welfare.

“Arizona and Pima County are facing important challenges. Now, more than ever, we must put partisanship aside and solve problems,” she said. “The hard-working families in this district deserve a supervisor who will be a dedicated, common-sense fighter for their values and quality of life."
