Representative Bob Thorpe Pulls Out Of State Senate Race, To Run For County Board Of Supervisors

State Representative Bob Thorpe has decided not to run for State Senate in District 6 and focus on a local seat. Thorpe announced Wednesday that he has dropped out of the race and will run for Coconino County Board of Supervisors in District 4, a seat currently being held by Jim Parks, who has also decided to run for state House in District 7. Parks also made the announcement Wednesday. LD 7 is currently being held by Arlando Turner and Myron Tsosie. Thorpe tells KAFF News “it was a tough decision but it was time to stay home more.” Thorpe has been in the State House serving District 6 since 2013 and had indicated he was going to run for State Senate before the switch. Parks is a one term Supervisor for District 4, which serves East Flagstaff south to Clint’s Well and Forest Lakes on the Mogollon Rim. Legislative District 7 serves Page, the Navajo Nation as well as southern Apache and Navajo counties along with parts of Graham and Greenlee counties.
