Hello, my name is Randy Garrison, and I am your Yavapai County Supervisor for District 3. My wife Debbie and I were both born in Arizona and were fortunate to have been raised right here in the Verde Valley. We have been married 32 years, and have a beautiful daughter named Shelby.
Being a fifth generation son of Verde Valley pioneers, I grew up in a family that was very committed to our community and active in economic development and local politics. My grandfather served as Yavapai County Supervisor, my father served as Mayor and Council for the City of Cottonwood.
I have been serving the public as an elected official for more than 15 years, and bring to the table a history of working for our communities. My Great Grandparents gave me the lessons of commitment and sacrifice, my Grandparents instilled in me the value of investing in our communities, and my parents brought me up to respect hard work and the value of a dollar.
Serving as your County Supervisor is a very humbling and exciting opportunity, and I accept the challenge of this new position because I love my community and I love serving the public. I recognize the responsibility that this position brings and I look forward to not only advocating for the citizens of Yavapai County, but stand ready to be a strong voice for the Verde Valley.
Our County and the Verde Valley have made a lot of positive gains over the past few decades. I look forward to making our communities truly exciting and rewarding places to live, work, and raise our families.
I will work hard to respect your voice, and with your support I believe that we can solve tomorrows problems together.
