Governing Board Candidates

November 2, 2010 Election


The following is a list of all candidates who have filed paperwork with this office. Some candidates have submitted a candidate statement along with a picture for posting on this website. Links to their statements appear next to candidate's name.

Several school districts have either no candidates or uncontested positions. Therefore, pursuant to Arizona Revised Statutes §15-424.D these uncontested elections may be canceled by the Pima County Board of Supervisors (with a cost savings for the school district). The candidates will be appointed by the Pima County Board of Supervisors and will be fully vested with the powers and duties of the office as if elected.
