YAVAPAI COUNTY -- At the December 5, 2018 Yavapai County Board of Supervisors meeting, the board unanimously voted to make Vice Chairman Randy Garrison the chairman of the Board for 2019 and Supervisor Craig Brown the new Vice Chairman.
“This is going to be a great year,” Garrison said. “I look forward to the opportunities this new position will present as we move forward in our work for the citizens of Yavapai County.
The Supervisors have come together as a great team and while we all serve our unique and distinct districts, collectively we have been able to, and hope to continue to, provide the highest level of service and commitment to Yavapai County.”
Supervisor Brown said he is excited to work with Garrison.
“I am really looking forward to offering Supervisor Garrison the support and encouragement, I received so many years ago from Chip Davis,” he said.
This position is not about power but responsibility and support. I am sure Randy will do a great job as the Chairman.”
