Justice of the Peace Nancy Discher Retires from Office - Board of Supervisors to Appoint Replacement to Serve Remaining Term Through December 31, 2022
Date: 1/28/2021

The Board of Supervisors today accepted the resignation of Nancy Discher, Justice of the Peace over Precinct 5, and set out the process to appoint a replacement to see out her remaining term.

Judge Discher, who has served the Copper Corridor Justice Court, representing Oracle, Eaglecrest Ranch, SaddleBrooke Ranch, and SaddleBrooke since January 2015, retired from office effective January 20, 2021.

Judge Discher was a dedicated servant to the people of Precinct 5 over the past six years, implementing a redistricting plan that combined three JP courts into the one Copper Corridor Justice Court.

Judge Shaun Babeu, from Precinct 1's Pioneer Justice Court paid tribute to Nancy Discher, “Judge Discher has been a friend and colleague for the past six years serving as Justice of the Peace for the Copper Corridor Justice Court. Judge Discher is a dedicated public servant who cared about every individual that came into her courthouse and operated her court in an efficient and effective manner. We wish her well in her well-deserved retirement.”

Precinct 5 sits within Supervisor Districts 1 and 4. District 1 Supervisor Kevin Cavanaugh commented, "Pinal County has been blessed to have a person of such incredible talent and integrity as Nancy Discher serving as a Justice. I am sad to see her go and am committed to appointing a person in JP 5 who measures up to her high ideals."
