BOS

The Gila County Board of Supervisors is responsible for the financing and administration of County government, has final approval over County department budgets, governs tax rates and calculates all other rates.

The Board has final approval for all zoning and use permits in the unincorporated areas of the County.

If a special board meeting is called, a public notice at least 24-hours prior to the meeting an agenda is made available to the public.

The Board of Supervisors also acts as the board of directors for certain special districts within the County such as the Gila County Library District, Strawberry Hollow County Improvement District, and East Verde Estates Street Improvement District.

In addition, the board is responsible for appointing the directors of the 5 County divisions.

The Board also works with other governmental bodies such as the towns and cities within Gila County, United States Forest Service and other state and federal governmental agencies.

District 1
Tommie Cline
Tommie Cline Martin, Chair

Supervisor Martin comes from a long line of Gila County Pioneer families. One set of great grandparents came by wagon into what would become northern Gila County in the late 1800's to set up a saw mill and also prospect for minerals. About the same time another set came into the Rim country moving west and herding goats, while also establishing Mercantile's with Post Offices along the way. Another set of grandparents arrived in the Pleasant Valley area in the early 1900's to farm and ranch.

She, in turn, was raised on a ranch in northern Gila County by parents who thought a 'liberated household' was one that had bread dough on the axe handles, and who claimed they couldn't afford to hire ranch help - so they raised it. This background led her into a varied 25-year career in Natural Resource Management work worldwide - with experience throughout the American West, western Canada, northern Mexico and eastern Africa – primarily in Somalia and Ethiopia.

As a Gila County Supervisor, some of her efforts have resulted in a Community Wildfire Protection Plan for Northern Gila County, the addition of numerous Fire-wise Communities within the area, and various strategically placed fire breaks throughout the Rim Country. Supervisor Martin also helped initiate a bladder-tank-helicopter fire-water set up for first-strike forest fire response, which has resulted, so far, in very successful initial fire suppression. This system has been awarded several national recognitions.

Supervisor Martin serves on the County Supervisors Association Legislative Policy Committee, the Board of the Coalition of Arizona/New Mexico Counties, the Tonto Natural Resource Conservation District, the US Forest Service Collaboration Cadre, and on the Steering Committee and Collaborative Stakeholder Group for the Four Forest Restoration Initiative.

She is serving her second term as District One Supervisor for Gila County and is currently Chairman for the Board of Supervisors.

District 2
Michael A. Pastor
Michael A. Pastor, Member

Elected on November 4, 2008, Michael A. Pastor began his term on January 6, 2009, as a member of the Gila County Board of Supervisors. His fellow board members elected him to serve as the Chairman from May 2010 - August 2011. A life-long resident of the Globe-Miami area, Supervisor Pastor is committed to serving District Two.

As a member of the Board of Supervisors, Supervisor Pastor also serves on the CORP (Correctional Officers Retirement Plan) Board, CAAG (Central Arizona Association of Governments) Regional Council, San Carlos Apache Tribe Partnership Steering Committee, and Cobre Valley Community Transit System Committee.

District 3
Shirley Dawson
Shirley Dawson, Vice Chair

Making the world a better place is the theme that Shirley Dawson has lived by. Her parents, Ernest and Vera Larson, taught Shirley to work hard and to serve others.

In 1963, she graduated from Eastern Arizona College with her Associate of Arts degree and received her Master’s degree in education from the University of Arizona in 1967.

Shirley was instrumental in founding the Developmental Learning Center, which was open to any child who was not provided services through the public school system. The Center has operated for 40 years and continues to serve special children and their families.

In 2005, Shirley, along with Supervisor Martin, became the first women elected to the Gila County Board of Supervisors. They have worked tirelessly to improve County services at all levels. Dawson states, “I love being able to help people and this position has given me the unique opportunity to assist individuals to understand how government can help them to help themselves. My most important role is that of a wife, mother and grandmother and I look forward to returning to that role full-time in 2013. I wish to thank the citizens of Gila County for their confidence in electing me as a public servant. Although I will no longer be an elected official, Judge Dawson and I will always be community servants.”
