Putting Politics Aside – We have a Republic to Save


Thomas Galvin – Maricopa County Board of Supervisor, District 2 receives motion from Legislative District 8


The following motion was made, seconded and approved at the monthly meeting on 5/28/24:

We, the body of Legislative District 8, make an urgent appeal for current LD8 PC and Board of Supervisor, Thomas Galvin to make an appearance at the next LD8 meeting on June 25, 2024 if he wishes to seek support for his upcoming election for Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, District 2.

In spite of the numerous requests to attend or speak at our monthly meetings, Mr. Galvin has not responded, has not reached out to the executive committee of LD 8 nor has he ever attended even one meeting since redistricting in early 2022.  Therefore, if Mr. Galvin wishes to request LD8’s support for his candidacy for Maricopa County Board of Supervisor, District 2, he must make the effort to attend on June 25, 2024 and make it known to the body.

The following was not included in the original motion, but provide for context:

When the above motion was presented to Supervisor Galvin at the recent Maricopa County Board of Supervisors meeting on June 12, 2024, it appeared that Supervisor Galvin was shaking his head that he did not want the support of Legislative District 8 in his upcoming run for re-election.  Full video is available at
