Kristen Randall resigned her position as the Pima County constable for Midtown Tucson in February.

She took the job in 2019 to help Tucsonans navigate the eviction system and come out of it still housed.

Randall said she felt she could mostly do that work, up until the pandemic eviction moratorium was lifted late last summer.

She has since moved on to the Green Valley Court, where she serves as court administrator and said she is already working on setting up eviction mediation hearings.

Megan Myscofski sat down with her to hear more about her experience and what she wants to see happen in Pima County as rents continue to rise.
