    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
    Tuesday, July 7th, 2015


    Pima County District Five Supervisor Richard Elías issued this statement following today's Board of Supervisors meeting:

    "This morning, I called for a more thorough, transparent process to appoint the next Pima County Sheriff.

    I did this because the public deserves to know more about law enforcement officers tasked with protecting our families.

    While my motion was not successful, I stand firm in my belief that meaningful community input would have made this appointment more fair and more just.

    Best wishes to Chief Nanos in his new role as Sheriff."
