Letter to the Editor: Vote Yes for New Roads! Propositions 416 & 417 are good for everyone

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

Don’t miss your chance to vote.

  Registered Voters of Pinal County should have received a mail in ballot for Propositions 416 and 417.  These propositions approve a comprehensive transportation plan for Pinal County and adds a retail sales tax to fund the construction of the plan.  The voters of Pinal County must vote to approve both propositions before we can build the new roads that are desperately needed for Pinal County. 

  Yes, this proposition will raise the sales taxes across the county. It is estimated that this tax will cost the average family in Pinal County 24 cents a day.  The 24 cents is a long term investment into our local economy.  Improved roads and infrastructure will help to attract new businesses and jobs to the county, create a much needed north-south freeway and most importantly build and repair roads that will improve public safety, which keeps our loved ones safe.

  As the Mayor of Superior, I am ecstatic to see that the communities of Eloy, Kearny, Mammoth and Superior will each receive $300,000 every year for 20 years.  This new funding stream, if approved by voters, will ensure these communities have adequate budgets to make significant road improvements.  For Superior, these funds will condense the 20 year pavement improvement plan into 10 years. The funding will also help to build new park and ride locations and increase dial a ride services throughout the County. 

  I am asking you to vote yes on Propositions 416 and 417, help us to pave the way to a thriving future for Superior, the Copper Corridor and Pinal County.  You can learn more about the propositions and the projects that the tax will fund at:  http://yeson416and417.com

  Sincerely,

/s/ Mila Besich-Lira

Mayor of Superior
