Statement:
I ran for this position in 2012. Things have not gotten any better in Pima County. So-called progressives have mismanaged funds, failed to fix roads, failed to adequately fund public safety, and often pass resolutions that are outside their purview. Besides having the highest property taxes and having a high percentage of poverty in the county, they have no regard for the people they are supposed to serve. This board passed a resolution that fines Counselors/Pastors if they are counseling children who are having confusion with their sexual identity (conversion therapy) We need to change the makeup of the present board. We have only one conservative on this board.
