A.G. "Chip" Davis, Yavapai County supervisor for District 3, which includes Sedona and most of the Verde Valley, is announcing his candidacy for the Arizona House of Representatives, Legislative District 1.
Davis is seeking the seat currently held by Arizona Rep. Karen Fann [R-Prescott], who has announced that she will be running for the District 1 Senate seat that will be vacated by current District 1 Sen. Steve Pierce [R-Prescott].
Davis, a Republican with roots in Yavapai County dating back to the 1880s, is currently serving his fifth term as Yavapai County supervisor for District 3 and has been chairman of the Board of Supervisors eight times. He is married and has four children and eight grandchildren.
“I look forward to working toward finding long-term solutions for the difficult issues facing the state with regard to education, transportation, natural resources, budget and ensuring that rural Arizona continues to have a strong voice in the state legislature,” Davis said.
Legislative District 1 encompasses most of Yavapai County and also includes New River, Anthem, Cave Creek and portions of Carefree in Maricopa County. Former Yavapai County Administrator Jim Holst is serving as the campaign chairman for Davis’ election committee. Davis’ daughter Savanna Fudge is serving as the treasurer and former Yavapai County Clerk of the Board Bev Staddon is serving as the committee’s secretary.
