Yavapai Country Board Of Supervisors Accepts The Resignation Of County Recorder Leslie Hoffman

A month before the 2022 primary election, Yavapai County Recorder Leslie Hoffman has resigned among threats and criticism over the 2020 election. Hoffman’s last day will be July 22nd. Also reportedly resigning is Yavapai County Election’s Director Lynn Constabile’s, as her last day will be Friday. The Board of Supervisors accepted Hoffman’s resignation at its regular meeting on July 6th. Hoffman says the harassment has come from supporters of former President Donald Trump. She told the Associated Press last week, “I’m a Republican recorder living in a Republican county where the candidate they wanted to win, won by two-to-one in this county and still getting grief and so is my staff.” It got so bad, Hoffman says the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office decided she needed protection after the 2020 election because of threats, and started regular patrols of her home. Arizona counties are going through logic and accuracy testing for the upcoming primary elections August 2nd. The Yavapai County Board of Supervisors is now soliciting Letters of Interest to those interested in completing the remaining term in office until December 31st, 2024. To serve as the Yavapai County Recorder, you must be a resident of Arizona, be over 18 years old, registered to vote in Yavapai County, read and write in English, and must be a person of the same political party as the person leaving office, which in this case, is the Republican Party. Those interested are encouraged to email a Letter of Interest and resume to ClerkOfTheBoard@YavapaiAZ.Gov, or to the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors at 1015 Fair Street, Third Floor, Room 310, in Prescott, Arizona. The last day to send Letters of Interest is 4 p.m. on July 19th.
