The Coconino County Board of Supervisors appoints a new member

FLAGSTAFF, Arizona (AP) – Coconino County’s Arizona Board of Directors has appointed a new member to represent District 2.

Supervisor Jeronimo Vasquez is expected to hold the position until the 2022 general election, reports The Arizona Daily Sun.

Vasquez, one of 12 applicants, was named after a series of interviews conducted by the board on Friday.

Vasquez was appointed after Supervisor Liz Archuleta stepped down from her board position last week to become director of the Office of Intergovernmental Affairs at the US Department of Agriculture.

Archuleta represented District 2 for 24 years.

“We know Supervisor Vasquez will carry on the legacy of former Supervisor Liz Archuleta,” CEO Matt Ryan said in a statement.

Vasquez said he looks forward to “working as hard as possible to get in touch as soon as possible so we can get an effective board together.”

“I really appreciate this vote of confidence and look forward to the task ahead. I will really give my all and hopefully do a great job for the community,” said Vasquez.
