Please vote NO on the road bonds! By state law, road building and repair is a top priority for counties. But THIS county has been misdirecting MILLIONS in highway and gasoline revenue FOR YEARS. Now these same Supervisors who have let your roads go to pieces WANT EVEN MORE OF YOUR MONEY! How crazy is that? Where do they spend their millions? A bowling alley! A golf course! More land that they don’t need! A hydrogen balloon explosion! (THAT misadventure will run in the TENS OF MILLIONS!) But not roads. Don’t let them get away with it! They should and COULD do everything needed for our roads out of the regular budget of $1.35 BILLION—per year! Supervisor Miller has shown how the money necessary could come from the general fund.

I strongly urge you to vote NO on Proposition 463 in November. Unincorporated Pima County is projecting they will receive an estimated $91 million in HURF (gas tax) and Vehicle License tax distributions in the current fiscal year county budget. The bulk of these monies are used to fund the salaries and overhead budget for the Department of Transportation which is projected to be more than $43 million this year. Per the County Administrator this bond will provide only $166,833,891 for unincorporated Pima County roads. That is less than 2 years of the HURF/VLT distributions Pima County is expected to receive from the state based upon the current year projection of $91 million. This debt issuance will absolutely raise your secondary property taxes for bond debt…..
