Vote will choose three of five running for Superior Council Irene Hansen, Appointed Incumbent

What do you see as economic development opportunities for Superior?

I’d like to see motor sales here. Maybe with the new highway things might change. I’d like to see more businesses coming in on Main Street, more businesses that can bring revenue to the town. People want to stay here, and if we could get something like a motel/hotel, people won’t go to Globe to stay. We have a lot to offer here. We need to bring some businesses that will stay for years. I’ve seen so many changes in 26 years.

How will you help to get all the local groups and school district to work together for a common vision? Do you feel there is a common vision amongst the groups and the Town?

Everybody has their own ideas about what to do. We need to get the Chamber of Commerce, Optimist and other clubs to have roundtable meetings and put together what to do in the community. There are a lot of things we could have the kids doing, they have a lot of time on their hands. We could be getting the people together with a goal in mind.

What do you feel needs to be done to ensure that Superior residents are safe and have access to police and fire services?

Some people want County coming in here, but I do not want them taking over our police department. We need that one-on-one with police. I want people to come to the meetings and give their input. I have been very vocal about it because the safety of the community is first for me. The fire and police need their equipment setup and running—it is paramount for me. We need to come up with the money to keep them here.

Do you support the Council’s recent decision to terminate the Mutual Benefits Agreement and discontinue unqualified support for the Southeast Arizona Land Exchange? How do you feel this decision will affect the Town and the Legislation?

Yes, I do. I voted for it. I don’t know what the legislature will do, but they can read our letter.

If you are elected, what would you like to see accomplished in Superior over your term?

I would really like to see us get back to a working budget that will encompass everything and give us what we need for the community. More people working together in the community to bring it up. I would like to see more attendance at council meetings and more people trying to make it a better place to live. I’ve already dreamt that there is a little town out there that functions like Mayberry from the Andy Griffith Show. I know it’s fantasy, but I would like to see everyone working to make things better.
