PHOENIX — U.S. Rep. Debbie Lesko, who is stepping away from Capitol Hill, is eyeing a spot on the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors.

According to her filing, she will be running to replace Clint Hickman in District 4, a district that has traditionally elected Republicans.

Hickman, a Republican, was appointed to the position in 2013, holding the West Valley district for more than a decade.

Lesko, also a Republican, won a special election in 2018 for her U.S. House of Representatives seat and won reelections three times since then. She announced in October 2023 that she wouldn’t seek reelection this year.

Lesko thanked Hickman for his service to the community in a post on X on Friday.

Hickman announced he would not run for reelection on Thursday and explained the decision on KTAR News 92.3 FM’s The Mike Broomhead Show a day later.

“What drove me out is I think I’ve done enough and I want to be here for my family,” Hickman said.

Three other Republicans have filed statements of interest to run for Hickman’s seat: Robert Canterbury, Jack Hastings and Robert Branch. No Democrats have filed.

Voters will select a new District 4 supervisor in November.

We want to hear from you.
