Mary Shope for Maxine Brown

Dear Editor,

I learned a lot about county politics back in 2008 when I ran for county supervisor. I didn’t win that election but in talking with people who remember that campaign and the problems we worked on together, it never feels like a loss.

I met a lot of great people on the campaign trail but one woman stands out as a special Pinal County asset. Her name is Maxine Brown and she’s running for County Supervisor in District 5.

Candidates can say anything to influence a voter but the fact is, it’s what they’ll do once elected that is the great unknown. Not so with Maxine Brown. If she says she’ll create jobs in Pinal County, she’ll do just that!

Under her guidance as Executive Director of Central Arizona Association of Governments, she received federal grant funds for the Superior Industrial Park (creating more than 40 full-time jobs), Coolidge and Eloy Sewer Plant expansions, and Phases I and II of the Casa Grande Industrial Air Park.

Not only did Maxine Brown create jobs for Pinal County residents (including job training programs for demand occupations), she also worked on much-needed road and highway improvements countywide.

One such project resulted in the expansion of US 60 from Florence Junction to the Arboretum. It’s a much safer drive up to Superior these days, thanks to her efforts!

I trust Maxine Brown to represent the people of our district with enthusiasm and integrity because in every position she’s ever held, she’s done exactly that. Some candidates complain incessantly about the government, which begs the question, why are they running?

But Maxine Brown is one candidate who we can all be proud of for her government service. Rather than complain about government, she’s uses her position to do exactly what politicians are supposed to do – serve the people!
