Supervisor Jason Whiting elected President of the County Supervisors Association
Holbrook, AZ – Navajo County Supervisor Jason Whiting was unanimously elected by his colleagues as the President of the County Supervisors Association (CSA) at the November 17, 2022, meeting of the CSA Board of Directors.
“I’m deeply honored and excited to be able to serve my fellow Supervisors in this role,” said Supervisor Whiting in thanking his colleagues for their support electing him to lead CSA. “Policies enacted at the State and Federal level directly affect County services and the overall cost of government. It is critical that County Supervisors forge a strong partnership with lawmakers to inform their consideration of proposed legislation, helping them to understand what various policies mean to constituent services and the local taxpayer. Solid collaboration between the State and its Counties promotes more efficient and responsive government across our state, and I am looking forward to leading the association’s work to this end.”
Outgoing CSA President Jean Bishop (Mohave County) offered her congratulations, stating “I could not be more pleased to hand the gavel over to Supervisor Whiting. Jason is a hardworking, dedicated public servant. He will be an exceptional leader of this organization. I look forward to working with him throughout his term.”
As President of CSA, Supervisor Whiting will lead the organization’s executive board for 2023, helping to develop plans and implement strategies for strengthening the policy collaboration between Arizona’s counties and State and Federal policymakers. He will also chair CSA’s Board of Directors and Legislative Policy Committee meetings, among other duties. He is joined on the organization’s executive board by the following officials: Pinal County Supervisor Steve Miller, Yuma County Supervisor Lynne Pancrazi, Graham County Supervisor Danny Smith, Pima County Supervisor Rex Scott and Immediate Past President and Mohave County Supervisor Jean Bishop.
CSA is an intergovernmental partnership of Arizona’s 15 counties.
All 61 supervisors in the State serve on CSA’s Board of Directors. The association serves as a forum for county leaders to address important issues facing local constituents and as a liaison to State and Federal policymakers.
