Chairman Thompson Appointed to State Transportation Board

Holbrook, AZ – District II Supervisor Jesse Thompson was recently appointed by Governor Doug Ducey to the State Transportation Board, with members of the Arizona State Senate confirming his appointment during a hearing on March 7th.


Chairman Thompson shared in the hearing – “I am a lifelong Arizonan who has spent the last 24 years serving the people of Navajo County and our region,” Supervisor Thompson said. “Through all my years of service, transportation has always been one of my highest priorities.
