On February 22, 2017 our speaker is Adrian Fontes, Newly-elected Maricopa County Recorder
After the debacle that was the March 22 Presidential Preference Election in Maricopa County, attorney Adrian Fontes could no longer stand on the sidelines. On March 23, he filed papers to run for Maricopa County Recorder. His campaign's purpose was to bring integrity and neutrality back into the recorder's office. Come hear how Adrian plans to do this.
Fontes enlisted in the United States Marine Corps, serving from 1992 to 1996 and achieved the rank of Corporal. He received a bachelor’s degree from Arizona State University and a JD from Sturm College of Law at the University of Denver in 2000.
He became a prosecutor with the Denver District Attorney, and then the Maricopa County Attorney's office and the Arizona Attorney General's office. He entered private practice in 2005.
