Wanted: Maricopa County Treasurer

Uncle Sam

It’s official. David Schweikert has officially resigned his position as County Treasurer to run for Congress. That means the Maricopa County Treasurer position is now available to anyone interested in serving in the position until January, 2009.

Of course, you have to get appointed by a majority of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors.

There is an advantage to being appointed as the Treasurer. If you decide to run for election for the position, you are the incumbent and that means having name recognition and an advanced platform to prove your worth to the citizens of Maricopa County.

For those who’d like to know how much the job pays, Arizona Revised Statutes currently has the Treasurer’s salary codified at $67,800/year. On January 1, 2009, that will go up to $76,600/year.

Still interested? Submit your resume and letter of interest to:

Maricopa County Board of Supervisors
C/O Clerk of the Board
301 W. Jefferson Street
10th Floor
Phoenix, AZ 85003

Deadline for application is 5 PM on Friday, October 26th.
