Former supervisor will run for District 5 seat


FORT MOHAVE – Jim Zaborsky is trying to return to the Mohave County Board of Supervisors after an 18 year absence.


The Fort Mohave Republican is circulating petitions to run for the District 5 in next year’s election cycle.

The seat is currently held by Lois Wakimoto, whom the supervisors appointed to complete Steve Moss’ term. Moss resigned to fill a vacancy on the Mohave County Superior Court bench that was created when Judge Steve Conn was forced to resign due to his age.

Zaborsky served the Bullhead City Council from 1993-96 and the Board of Supervisors from 1997-2000. He has also served on numerous boards and commissions over the years and has been a Mohave County Airport Authority director since 1999.

Zaborsky believes he can bring leadership and experience to a county board he thinks should be more cohesive.

“I want to get in there and really work with the board to try to start working together a little more and really deal with the issues out there and not try to aggravate each other," Zaborsky said. “I think I could help bring this board closer together and work as a team to support what the citizens of the county need.”

Zaborsky said he is already familiar with Mohave County Administrator Mike Hendrix and a number of department heads and feels prepared to hit the ground running to address current water, transportation and public safety issues.

He said he'll work to qualify his candidacy through the holidays and begin campaigning in earnest early next year.
