On Feb. 22 newly elected Maricopa County Recorder Adrian Fontes will speak at the monthly Grand Democrats meeting about the changes he plans to make in the recorder’s office.

After the debacle that was the March 22, 2016 Presidential Preference Election in Maricopa County, attorney Adrian Fontes decided to run for the office. His campaign’s purpose was to bring integrity and neutrality back into the recorder’s office.
