Meet the Candidate
Running For:Board of Supervisors
Education:Associate in Applied Science Degree in Sociology.
Family:Married to Ted Mercer 33 years, 3 adult children, 3 grandchildren.
Religion:Non denominational Christian
Statement:I am tired of the poor representation from the incumbent in District 3. She has been in office 24 years and our roads are worse than ever! I am tired of the lack of accountability, and the mismanagement of tax payer funds, the rampant cronyism that has been going on in Pima County for too long. I am ready to help bring the much-needed change in Pima County and truly represent the tax payers in District 3.
