Governor Doug Ducey announced the appointment of Hollie Lucas as La Paz County Clerk of the Superior Court on Tuesday. The appointment fills the vacancy created by the resignation of Megan Spielman. Under Arizona law, the vacancy created by the resignation is filled by gubernatorial appointment until the next general election in 2022.
“Hollie’s career shows her dedication to La Paz County and she will be able to do great things for her community,” said Governor Ducey. “I am delighted to appoint Hollie Lucas as Clerk of the Superior Court in La Paz County.”
Lucas is a lifetime resident of La Paz County whose career has been defined by public service to her community. As a member of the La Paz County Sheriff’s Office since 2004, Lucas currently serves as Detention Administrator. In this role, her responsibilities include maintaining records and supervising personnel. She has extensive experience managing vendor contracts, as well as billing, budgets, and grants. She also serves as the System Security Officer for the Sheriff’s Office, ensuring that criminal records information systems are maintained, audited, and compliant with the law.
Lucas previously worked in the Warrants/Records/Extraditions Division from 2007 to 2016. In this role, she maintained legal records and provided inmate reports, records, and audits for local and federal agencies. She began her time with the La Paz County Sheriff’s Office in 2004 as a part-time employee, before quickly moving up to a full-time position as a Booking Clerk.
Having worked in law enforcement for 17 years, Lucas has training and substantial knowledge in the Court’s management of cases. She also helped implement audio-video conferencing and remote communication for the La Paz County jails and courts when the pandemic challenged normal operations and has helped transition the office to paperless.
