Election night on Nov. 6 brought some new faces to local government, including Craig Brown as Dist. 4 Yavapai County supervisor, and three new members to the Chino Valley Fire District board.

Of the three incumbents on the CVFD board, Hans Vang, John Garner, and David McConnell, only McConnell retained his position with 3,734 votes (23.57 percent), although Yavapai County has not yet made these results official.

Newcomers Charles Dougan and Gary Warren took the remaining two openings by claiming 20.21 percent and 27.44 percent of the votes, respectively.

Vang, who will remain as chairman of the board until his term expires in December, earned 1,923 votes (12.14 percent).

Brown, who won the August primary for the new board of supervisors seat, ran unopposed. He was on hand at the Yavapai County GOP election night party at the Prescott Resort to be announced alongside fellow supervisors Rowle Simmons, Tom Thurman and Jack Smith.

Fair representation to the newly formed district, which has Chino Valley as its center, is important to Brown, but following the announcement he said that education and inclusion of the area youth is key to the success of the region.

"Politics at this level is not a party thing," said Brown. "Kids have to get involved in politics, they have to be aware of the issues. It's the only way they are going to learn and make their own choices. We have to give them every opportunity to see how the process works. Once they understand the process they are on their way to being productive citizens."

Both the board of supervisors and Chino Valley Fire Board positions take office in January.
