Pima County Supervisor District 1 Ally Miller has announced she will not be seeking a third term next year. “I have decided that it is time to retire and move on to another phase of my life,” she said on a Facebook post Monday afternoon.
Miller, one of only two Republicans on the Board of Supervisors, was first elected to represent District 1 in 2012; she easily survived a primary challenge and went on to easily beat a Democratic opponent in her 2016 re-election bid.
“I was going to announce this in January but think I should do this now. After giving it much consideration, I have decided that it is time to retire and move on to another phase of my life. I have decided not to run for Board of Supervisors District 1 election. I will serve out my term which ends Dec. 31, 2020. Thanks to everyone for all of the support you have given me over these last several years. Now we need to find someone to step up to run for this seat.”
The names of candidates have already started circulating, including former State representatives Vic Williams and Ethan Orr, and current Oro Valley Town Councilwoman Rhonda Piña.
