Long time Tucson businessman and community leader, Stephen W. “Steve” Christy today announced his candidacy for the District 4 seat on the Pima County Board of Supervisors. Christy, a Republican, seeks to succeed current District 4 Supervisor Ray Carroll, who announced last week that he would not run for re-election to the board when his term ends this year.

Familiar to Tucsonans as the owner and president of Galloway Motors, renamed Steve Christy Chrysler-Jeep, Christy sold the dealership in 2007. He has a long history of business and community involvement; and served in a variety of leadership capacities, including president of the Arizona Automobile Dealers; president (twice) of the Tucson New Car Dealers; board member and chairman of the Tucson Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce; as a member and chairman of the Arizona State Transportation Board; and as member of the Tucson Airport Authority,  the Pima County Regional Transportation Authority, and the Pima Association of Governments.

Christy attended Sam Hughes, Mansfeld, and Green Fields Schools. He received a B.S. Degree in Political Science from the American University in Washington, D.C. He and his wife, Susan, have been married for 35 years, and have three grown daughters and two grandchildren.

District Four is the southeastern district in Pima County, containing much of Tucson’s far east side, areas in the unincorporated foothills, eastward to the Cochise County line, and then south to the Santa Cruz County line, and west to include Green Valley and a portion of Sahuarita.
