Pima County Supervisor Ally Miller won't seek a third term next year, the Republican announced Monday afternoon. "I have decided that it is time to retire and move on to another phase of my life," she said.

Miller was first elected to represent District 1 in 2012; she survived a primary challenge and easily beat a Democratic opponent in her 2016 re-election bid.

Miller's statement:

I was going to announce this in January but think I should do this now. After giving it much consideration, I have decided that it is time to retire and move on to another phase of my life. I have decided not to run for Board of Supervisors District 1 election. I will serve out my term which ends Dec. 31, 2020. Thanks to everyone for all of the support you have given me over these last several years. Now we need to find someone to step up to run for this seat.

A pair of Democrats — Rex Scott and Jeff Farrell — have filed to run for the District 1 seat on the Board of Supervisors. The names of other candidates are being floated as well, including current Oro Valley Town Councilwoman Rhonda Piña.

Miller posted her announcement on several of her Facebook pages, including her own personal profile, as well as her "Ally Miller for Supervisor" and "Supervisor Ally Miller- 2nd Term" pages.
