Group of counties honors Brown before retirement


STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX – House Democratic Leader Pro Tem Jack Brown, D-St. Johns (District 5), has been honored for his public service by the Arizona County Supervisors Association.
Brown, who is retiring on Jan. 9, has fought tirelessly to protect the interests of his constituents and those in other rural communities, the association’s members said.

“The key to his success was that he didn’t approach rural issues from a partisan standpoint,” said Jim Palmer, the association’s former president and longtime friend of the Brown family. “His ability to find common ground was the hallmark of his leadership.”

“We have always appreciated Jack’s wisdom and leadership,” said Freeport McMoran Inc. President “Red” Conger. “He experienced firsthand the importance of agriculture, ranching and mining to rural Arizona and our entire state. And, he has been a great champion to ensure these industries create jobs and strengthen communities into the future.”

Brown also recently was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Arizona Capitol Times and the Arizona Farm Bureau's Distinguished Service to Arizona Agriculture award.
"I'll continue working for the citizens of District 5 and all of Arizona in my retirement years,” Brown said. “I’m not done yet.”

Brown will continue to serve his constituents through Jan. 9. He is available at 602-926-4129.
