TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Pima County Supervisor Ally Miller says she won’t seek re-election for the Board of Supervisors in District 1.

Miller announced Monday that she’s decided that it’s time to retire and move on to another phase of her life.

She says she’ll serve out her term which ends on Dec. 31, 2020.

Miller had previously filed paperwork to seek a third term.

She initially was elected in 2012 to represent the district in northern Pima County, which includes Marana and Oro Valley.

The announcement leaves Republicans without a candidate for the District 1 seat during next year's election.

The Arizona Daily Star reports that the only two candidates who have announced they’re running for the seat are Democrats Rex Scott and Jeff Farrell, who are both educators.
