My fellow Maricopans, it’s time to make a critical decision for our city and county. The Nov. 7, all mail-in election asks for your vote on Prop 416 and Prop 417. These two items are of vital importance to our future, but there is a lot of misinformation and narrowly-focused misperceptions about what these items will do for Maricopa. I want to share some facts with you so that you can cast an informed vote.

FACT: State Route 347 and East-West Corridor improvements are included in Phase 1 of the “164 new Parkway lane miles throughout Pinal County” (publicity pamphlet, pg. 7) even though they are not specifically listed by name on the ballot.
