The three Republican candidates running for the newly created Yavapai County Supervisor District 2 met again Aug. 15 in Camp Verde in a forum hosted by the League of Women Voters of Greater Verde Valley at the American Legion Post No. 93.
The candidates are Martin Pangburn of Dewey-Humboldt, a former employee of Del Webb and construction company owner who also has operated a ministry around the world; John McReynolds, a 35-year resident of Camp Verde who owns a local barbecue restaurant and served on the first Camp Verde Interim Town Council; and incumbent Tom Thurman, a contractor and former phone company employee who lives in Prescott.
Although Thurman is the two-term incumbent, he’s not directly represented this area in previous years.
Because of increased population in Yavapai County counted in the 2010 census, the county is being split from three supervisor districts into five. The new District 2 stretches from Beaver Creek to Black Canyon City and splits up the Verde Valley into different districts.
