It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Alan Richardson.
Alan, a longtime elected District 6 Republican Precinct Committeeman was known as a man of integrity and dedication. Alan worked in both the Arizona State House and Senate as well as for the Maricopa County Department of Education. A gifted writer, he also wrote for the Foothills Focus newspaper.
Although seriously ill, he continued to work toward his election as a member of the Deer Valley Unified School District Governing Board. Alan’s perseverance was so strong, he was able to collect the necessary signatures required to run and his name will appear on the ballot.
Those of us who were privileged to have known him will continue to be inspired by the example he set as he worked to better the lives of others.
Information on his memorial service will be posted here as soon as it becomes available.
