I work hard to protect the rights of Pima County taxpayers. Many of our citizens are on fixed incomes while others are struggling to be successful in this sluggish economy. Keeping taxes low makes a difference for all of us. Property tax rates are a critical concern for businesses considering a move here and we need to lower the rates in Pima County, if we want our economy to grow.
The Arizona chapter of "Americans for Prosperity" (AFP) rates all elected officials in the state each year. The rating system assesses how elected officials perform in terms of their votes to protect taxpayers.
I am proud to have received the second highest rating of "Hero of the Taxpayer" on the 2015 scorecard. I am especially proud to be one of only two County Supervisors in the state of Arizona to have received this recognition. The AFP ratings for the entire board are shown below:
With the upcoming election in 2016, we are likely to see a change in the board majority that will finally get us moving in the right direction. We must focus on core services and that means fixing the roads and lowering our property tax rates to facilitate sustainable economic development.
It has been an honor to serve the citizens of Pima County.
As you know, I am running for re-election in 2016 and now have a republican challenger. I am asking for your support and for your vote.
Thank You for your faith and confidence in me!
