Though it is little-known, every county in Arizona has one. But what is the role of the Public Fiduciary in Arizona?
No other state has precisely the same kind of position. Other states may have a public guardian, public conservator or public administrator. Some may have two of those offices. One or two states even have all three. But no other state has rolled all three positions into a single public office.
In this podcast episode, we review a little bit of the history of the Public Fiduciary's office, and particularly the one in Pima County (Tucson). We have some insight into the role of the Public Fiduciary -- one of us held the position for five years in the early 1980s.
