County Attorney Appointment - 2022

The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors has invited three candidates running for Maricopa County Attorney to apply for appointment to the position in the interim.  

The three candidates are Anni Foster, Gina Godbehere, and Rachel Mitchell, all Republicans who submitted the minimum number of signatures required to get on the ballot in the August primary.  

In addition to in-person interviews with board members, the candidates have been asked to complete a brief questionnaire.  Their responses are linked below.

The Board is required by law to fill a vacancy in the office and must appoint someone of the same political party as the previous office holder, in this case a Republican.  State law does not dictate a specific process for filling the vacancy.  The person chosen by the Board will serve through the 2022 General Election, when voters will choose a new County Attorney to serve out the remainder of the term through 2024.   We will provide more information on the appointment process on this page.
