Clint Hickman, a 4th-generation Arizonan from one of the West Valley's most prominent families and businesses, was appointed to the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors March 21, 2013. Hickman was retained by District 4 voters in 2016 and re-elected in 2020.
He is vice president of sales and marketing at Hickman's Family Farms, the largest egg producer in the southwest United States and in the top 20 nationwide. As a West Valley landmark business that started in 1944 on Grandma Nell's backyard porch and a few hens, it is still family owned and operated. His success in the egg business led to his selection to serve on the American Egg Board, which advocates for egg farmers nationwide.
Supervisor Hickman’s experience running a business and his deep roots in the West Valley have guided his actions on the Board of Supervisors, where fiscal responsibility and exceptional customer service are top priorities. He is passionate about providing resources to small, local businesses and job opportunities to justice-involved individuals following their incarceration. In addition, Supervisor Hickman has worked with his colleagues to guide the County through challenging times, including the global COVID-19 pandemic and efforts to undermine free and fair elections.
Supervisor Hickman comes to politics after years of service in community affairs and charitable causes. He is a former Honorary Commander of the 69th Fighter Squadron at Luke Air Force Base, a member of the Hunger Project, the Arizona and Maricopa County Farm Bureau, and a board member for the Arizona Food Marketing Association. He has also served on the Maricopa Association of Governments Transportation Policy Committee and as President of the County Supervisors Association.
Supervisor Hickman takes seriously his job representing the fastest-growing part of the nation’s fastest-growing county.
"I have always been a growth enthusiast, but growth in the right way," he says. "With growth comes social, environmental and sustainability needs. I am aware of these needs and will work to help Maricopa County grow smarter for our current population and future generations."
Clint Hickman is a Republican. He and his wife, Jennifer, live in the West Valley with their two sons and daughter.
