On Thursday, Clint Hickman announced that he will not run for another term on the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors.

In a statement released on Thursday, Clint Hickman declared that he will not be running for another term on the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors. Hickman cited a desire to prioritize spending time with his family as the reason for his decision.

In the current cycle, Hickman, a member of the Republican party, has become the second supervisor to announces plans not to seek reelection to the five-member board. Another Republican, Bill Gates, announced in June that he plans to explore other interests and opportunities instead.

Hickman was appointed in 2013 and has been representing District 4 in the West Valley since then.

Hickman statement:

“For more than a decade, it has been my privilege to represent the West Valley as a Maricopa County supervisor. The communities of District 4 mean the world to me. I grew up here, worked at our family farm here, met my wife and raised our kids here. To be able to give back to a place that has given so much to me is an honor.

But time is a valuable commodity. We use it, and we never get it back. My family has been gracious and unselfish in supporting me as I’ve campaigned, served, held town halls and breakfasts with constituents, been part of early morning and late-night meetings about county business, made decisions that brought significant attention and had a profound impact—all things that come with public service. I’m proud of this period of my life, but I want more time with my family.

Therefore, I will not seek another term as the county supervisor representing District 4. I am choosing to give my undivided attention to my wife, children, family business, and friends. I couldn’t be more excited.

To my constituents, thank you for trusting me to serve our West Valley. Never forget the power you have as voters to choose your representatives. They can be people of courage and integrity who share your values and put the well-being of the community first. It’s my sincere hope that I’ve been that kind of public servant for you.”

In November, voters will have the opportunity to choose a new supervisor for District 4.

According to Hickman, it is important to remember the influential role of voters in selecting their representatives. It is possible for these representatives to possess bravery and honesty, align with your beliefs, and prioritize the welfare of the community.
