Prescott, AZ (May 20, 2016)—Republican Mary Beth Hrin officially announced her bid for Yavapai County Board of Supervisors, District 1, at a public event held at Prescott’s Jersey Lilly Saloon on Thursday, May 19. Following introductory endorsements by State Rep. Noel Campbell and Prescott Mayor Oberg,Hrin outlined her priorities for office: the costs associated with the Public Safety Personnel Retirement System (PSPRS) and oversight of recovery homes. She also questioned the need for another Yavapai County jail at this time without first fully implementing the recommendations put forth by Chinn Planning in the jail needs analysis study. She then took numerous questions from the audience.
On Friday, May 20, Hrin filed her nominating petition with the Yavapai County Recorder’s Office to be placed on the ballot for the primary election on August 30. Originally from Philadelphia, now residing in Yavapai county for 14 years, Hrin is an appellate attorney who worked as an assistant district attorney for the City of Philadelphia.
"I bring to the office analytical and problem-solving skills sharpened by years as an attorney,” Hrin says. “Plus, over the past year I’ve been working diligently behind the scenes on the issues vitally important to the people of Yavapai County, so I come to office fully equipped to hit the ground running.”
Most recently, Hrin was instrumental in working with Rep. Campbell to get H.B. 2107 passed by the legislature. According to Rep. Campbell, “Ms. Hrin was an invaluable asset to me. Not only did she conduct legal research, but she also worked as a liason for me between the neighbors and the recovery home industry so everyone came together to support my bill. She will bring those kinds of skills to the Board to solve the problems we face .”
In her spare time Ms. Hrin enjoys bicycle riding, shooting, baking, and football.
