The previous supervisor in District 1 was Ms. Ann Day, who was a “go along to get along” supervisor. It was stated that Mrs. Miller needs to get along with her “friends” on the board. Well,.....Ms. Day would on many occasions speak against a motion, then instead of voting no, Ms. Day would vote yes with her friends on the board. Her reward for that wonderful “friendly” behavior was, guess what? Yep, the worst roads in Pima County.

I am very pleased to announce that District 1 will be receiving a large portion of the $5 million allocated for road repairs this year. Although the County Administrator did not approve of road repair funds being allocated for neighborhood roads, there was some good news for residents when the Board approved $1.9 million for arterial road repair projects in District 1 at the November 18th Board of Supervisors meeting. While I did ask for consideration of funding neighborhood roads in failing condition, I was informed by the Director of Transportation that only arterial roads would be addressed. Regardless, at this time of Thanksgiving, I am very thankful that my fellow Supervisors approved any funding for District 1 road repairs and hope we can continue to work to find solutions to our road problems.
