FLORENCE — Ideas for improving Pinal County’s transportation system and state funding shortfalls were shared by candidates hoping to fill a vacancy for state representative in Legislative District 8, in interviews before the Pinal County Board of Supervisors Wednesday.

The Republican precinct committee of LD 8 nominated Neal Carter, Chuck Gray and Joseph Lutrario to be the candidates to replace Frank Pratt, R-Casa Grande, who died Sept. 21. The board is expected to select a candidate to fill the seat at its Oct. 27 meeting.
