First elected to the Pinal County Board of Supervisors in 2008, Pete Rios continues a distinguished 30-year career in public service after winning election again in 2012.
 
Hailing from the copper mining towns of Hayden, Winkelman and Dudleyville, Rios attended Arizona State University where he received his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Sociology and a Master's Degree in Social Service Administration.
 
Rios, one of 14 children, grew up in the Copper Corridor area of Pinal County and attended Hayden High School where he participated in sports and student government.
 
He was first elected to public office in 1982 as a State Senator and held positions of Democratic Whip and Democratic Assistant Leader.
 
In 1991, Rios was elected as President of the Arizona State Senate for the 40th Legislature, making him the first Latino Senate President in the history of the state.
 
He also served two terms in the Arizona House of Representatives after being term-limited in the Senate.
 
 
Pete is married and has three children and resides in Dudleyville with a temporary residence in Apache Junction. Rios’ wife is a registered nurse. One of his children has followed in his footsteps and has dedicated her life to public service. Rebecca also served for 12 years in the legislature in both the House and Senate representing Legislative District 23, which was mostly Pinal County.
 
Pete came back to his home county to help chart the future of a fast changing county.
