Retiring Rep. Debbie Lesko Now Seeks Election to Maricopa County Board of Supervisors

Representative Debbie Lesko (R-AZ-08), who recently announced she will retire from the U.S. Congress at the end of her term, is now reportedly seeking election to the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors.

Multiple reports reveal Lesko announced her candidacy for the District 4 seat on the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors within hours of the Thursday announcement when Supervisor Clint Hickman confirmed he will not seek another term in office.

The following day, Lesko expressed her gratitude for Hickman in a post to X.

“Thank you Maricopa County Supervisor Clint Hickman for your service to the great people in the West Valley and Maricopa County,” wrote Lesko. She added, “Your work for the people in the West Valley will be remembered.”

Currently finishing her second term in Congress, Lesko announced her decision not to seek reelection in October, citing her desire “to spend more time with my husband, my 94-year-old mother, my three children, and my five grandchildren.”

After noting the amount of time U.S. House members must spend at the nation’s capital, Lesko declared, “Right now, Washington, D.C. is broken; it is hard to get anything done. Please know that I will continue my work to improve Congress and to help my constituents and the American people. We must all work toward that end.”

Lesko also clarified she did not intend to leave Congress until the end of her term in January 2025.
