Rand Armstrong

Meet the Candidate

Running For:
Board of Supervisors
District 4
Political Affiliation:
I grew up in Prescott and have owned and operated a business in Yavapai County for more than 25 years. I have earned a decent living from the growth and opportunities that this county has provided. I feel it is time that I try to repay to the people of Yavapai County with some of what I have learned along the way. I will listen to what my constituents want and not blindly impose my own will over their wishes. I believe it is essential for an elected official to always remember that the tax payers are the ones they serve.
