Web Producer: Mekita Rivas
PHOENIX (AP) - The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors is ready to select a new member.
Some current and former mayors and ex-state lawmakers are in the running for a vacant seat.
Seventeen people submitted their resumes by last Friday's deadline in hope of completing Max Wilson's term.
The 70-year-old Wilson announced his resignation March 1, citing health reasons.
He had been on the five-member board since 2002 and oversaw District 4. That district includes Sun City, Sun City West, Litchfield Park, Surprise, El Mirage, Peoria, Youngtown, Wickenburg and parts of Glendale, Goodyear, Avondale and Buckeye.
Wilson's replacement must be a registered Republican from District 4.
The supervisors are expected to pick Wilson's replacement Thursday afternoon.
