The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors is seeking applicants for Justice of the Peace in the McDowell Mountain Precinct. Judge Michael Reagan, who has served in that position for more than 15 years, is retiring effective July 26, 2019.
The district encompasses a large area, stretching as far as Tatum Boulevard to the west, McDowell Mountain Road to the east, Thomas Road to the south, and Stagecoach Pass to the north. You can see the full precinct boundaries here.
