Mission & Goals

Sells District Administration’s mission and goals are to provide paramount service to our constituents. We work to carry out their goals and objectives and those of the communities, and provide a voice to interface with the Tohono O’odham Nation on behalf of our communities.

The Sells District Administration consists of 14 employees, working out of the office located at milepost 112.7 on State Route 86, south east of the Sells Convenience Station. We provide a range of services to the local community, such as monetary and labor assistance. Our conference room provides a community hub for events and meetings. We have several community-based committees to oversee and address local concerns and serve the will of our constituents from the eight local communities via a 42 member governing District Council, who gather for three meetings a month. We are also home to the business office of our local stores and enterprises located within the District.
