On Monday Gov. Doug Ducey ordered the lowering of flags in honor of former Pima County Supervisor Ann Day. 

“Arizona lost a remarkable public servant this weekend with the tragic death of Ann Day. A former state senator and Pima County supervisor, Ann was a dedicated champion for Southern Arizona and those she served. We are saddened by her loss but grateful for her legacy. Our prayers remain with her family during this difficult time," Ducey said in a statement.

"In honor of the life and service of Ann Day, I’ve ordered that flags at all state buildings be lowered to half-staff until sunset today, May 9, 2016. May God bless and watch over her and her loved ones.” 

Day died Saturday in a head-on crash with 24-year-old Jarrad Barnes, who faces one count of manslaughter and one count of DUI.
