A large breakfast crowd gathered at a Pinal Partnership event in Gold Canyon Friday where Pinal County officials came together to talk transportation and the half-cent sales tax that will be on the ballot in November through propositions 416 and 417.

Jordan Rose, panel moderator and Rose Law Group founder and president, asked the crowd if it remembered why the partnership came together 12 years prior. “It was because we wanted to have a big coalition of various interests around the county and from other counties to come in and say Pinal County is happening, and they need transportation infrastructure,” she answered.

Rose asked panelists why they are in support of the propositions.

“We’ve come to the crossroads in Pinal County that the only way we are going to improve our transportation system is through a sales tax, Pinal County Supervisor Chairman, Stephen Miller said.”The feds aren’t going to be coming with any money. The state isn’t going to be bringing any money. If we want to plan our destiny, we’re going to have to do it ourselves, and I see this half-cent sales tax as the first step to moving Pinal County forward.”
