ACMA Member Profile - Arlethe G. Rios, Clerk of the Board, Cochise County
Where are you originally from?
I was born in Mexico and raised in Douglas, AZ.

Why did you decide to pursue a career in local government?
After serving in the Army, I wanted to continue my career and focus on public service. Serving my country was an honor and I wanted the opportunity to be able to serve my community in the same way.

What do you like most about your job?
What I like most about my job is knowing that I am creating and maintaining historical records. While working on the Legacy Project, I realized that transcribing minutes, while a tedious task, is critical to preserve our history and allow future generations to understand our present-day issues.
