    Democrat Chris Nanos (then Chief Deputy) was appointed to this seat by the Pima County Board of Supervisors in July, 2015.   He replaced long term Sheriff Clarence Dupnik, who retired after 35 years in that position.

    My previous post about this appointment: https://blogforarizona.net/deputy-chief-chris-nanos-appointed-to-replace-retiring-pima-county-sheriff-clarence-dupnik/

    Nanos faces Republican challenger Mark Napier, who ran before for this seat in 2012. Dupnik won 50.66% to Napier’s 45.85% (185,425 votes to 167,830 votes). Napier was formerly a Captain with Tucson Police Dept., now Associate Director at UA Parking & Transportation.
