Oracle Resident Tapped for Constable in Precinct 5

2/21/2013

FLORENCE – Local teacher and former San Manuel High School baseball coach Mike Sloan has been selected by the Pinal County Board of Supervisors to be the next constable for Justice Court Precinct 5.

The Oracle resident will fulfill the remainder of the late Robert Hendrickson’s term until January 1, 2015. Constable Hendrickson died unexpectedly on January 25.

“I am surprised, humbled and pleased at the same time,” Sloan said following the special session held in the Board of Supervisors’ Hearing Room in Florence. “I’m sure Judge Robert Kent and I will work well together.”

Sloan was joined by local businessman Robert Guyton, Joshua Hendrickson and retiree Jack Warren in seeking the constable position.

Board members complemented all four gentlemen for applying for the position. Each of the individuals met the qualifications of living within the district and being registered as Republicans. By law, the person selected to fill a mid-term vacancy must be of the same political party as the person who was originally elected to the position.

The Board voted unanimously to select Sloan who had cited his community service and faith-based community involvement as assets for the position, in addition to experience as a coach and teacher.
