Letter to the Editor: Thoughts on Incorporation

There are over 100,000 residents here that live in the diverse area called San Tan Valley. San Tan Valley is the most populous unincorporated area in the United States, and yet for years we were denied the right to vote on our future. After fighting for years, we have now won that right.

Letter to the Editor: Need for New Roads & Freeways hits home for Goodman & New Granddaughter

For some time now, myself and other supporters of Propositions 416 and 417 have said that new roads and freeways will improve public safety by providing alternate routes for our citizens, and first responders in emergencies. That point became very personal for me this week.

Yes votes on Propositions 416 and 417 will get us new roads and freeways, and solve our traffic nightmares now and into the future. But these measures also preserve our quality of life.

Letter to the Editor: What if a real handicapped person came to WalMart and NEEDED that spot

To the lady in the WalMart parking lot: You parked your Red Mercedes in a handicapped spot, I called you on it. You said you have a sticker but failed to produce it and then you drove around the parking lot to find where I was parked and stopped to tell me "You just jealous". Of what?

Letter to the Editor: Open Letter to Pinal County BOS Regarding Prop 416/417

Did you know that the largest church in America has no doors, no walls, and no geographical limit? It’s the Church of Infinite Growth, and you are a member of it. You believe that growth is good, that it's inevitable, and that it's your job to facilitate it. You believe the only way to encourage economic activity is to subsidize land developers and big corporations. You hope: “maybe if we build new roads, Amazon will come and build a factory".

Letter to the Editor: An Important Vote for New Roads & Freeways

Dear Fellow Pinal County Resident:

You know better than anyone how inadequate roads and freeways in Pinal County can be. From north to south, east to west, our infrastructure needs serious help.

BOS - Stop Rezoning San Tan Valley

Wednesday, June 7th, was a very busy morning. Not only was an infamous utility company owner being arraigned in federal court, but the Pinal County Board of Supervisors was also meeting and some items on that agenda were troubling to say the least.

Unfortunately, while the letter was mentioned that it had been received, the letter was not read at the meeting. As a result, I am posting the letter here for anyone who may be interested in reading what it said.
