Highway Robbery! Pima County Vs Tucson (PAYGO)

Highway Robbery! Pima County Vs. Tucson

It’s not often that I will do an “opinion piece” in my blog or on my podcast… however, today is an exception.

In today’s post, I will share with you what I consider to be one of the grossest examples of mismanagement and “highway robbery” that is being perpetrated against the citizens of Tucson, Marana, Vail, and Oro Valley.

Today’s post is a Podcast straight from KarlBuysHouses

A Story As Old As Our Country…

From our earliest foundation as a State, we have as Arizonans always had a “rebellious streak.” Perhaps that’s why we all fit together so nicely here in Tucson.

This is why it infuriates me that after Tucsonan’s soundly rejected a $430 Million dollar bond project that the Pima County Board of Supervisors proposed for road repairs, Pima County decided to create a “Pay As You Go” (PAYGO) plan for completing road repairs.

It seems that Tucsonan’s have a dim view on how wasteful Pima County is. This necessitated the need for them to enact this PAYGO plan.

Taxation…Without Representation.

Pima County is certainly resourceful. Failing to have any common sense, or decency; Chuck Huckleberry was quick to look towards his masters in Maricopa County for leadership.

What came down was the PAYGO plan.

Failed Leadership In Tucson?

Tucson, who represents nearly 50% of the population of Pima County gets zero say in which roads are repaired using this PAYGO money.

Vice Mayor Paul Cunningham and Councilman Steve Kozachik recently approached the Pima County Supervisors about this inequity, and were met with curt denials.

“This is one of the most disgusting things a government can do… they are taking tax monies paid in hard-working and blue-collar neighborhoods and using it to fix roads in some of the county’s wealthiest areas…”

Meanwhile… Mayor Regina Romero is busy promoting and endorsing Elizabeth Warren for President.

Who.. in your opinion, is looking out for the City of Tucson’s interest?

The Failed Leadership Of Pima County Board Of Supervisors

“Absolutely Vile… this is one of the most disgusting things a government can do… they are taking tax monies paid in hard-working and blue-collar neighborhoods and using it to fix roads in some of the county’s wealthiest areas…” Said Vice Mayor Pete Cunningham…

Absolutely correct.

The purpose of Government isn’t to “back-door” the will of it’s citizenry.

I hope that you will remember this in November, and pass this along to those you think would like to hear it!
