Pinal County supervisor: Incumbent faces 2 challengers in redrawn District 3

Not surprisingly, jobs and the economy top the list of priorities for all three candidates for Pinal County Supervisor in District 3. The approach to improving the county’s roughly 10 percent unemployment rate differs a bit, but all the candidates agree that solving the problem is priority one.

“People are suffering right now, businesses are suffering,” said Robert Almaguer, who is running as an independent.

“We’ve got to work on the economic development to try and make something happen,” said Steve Miller, the Republican candidate.

“We need to bring industry and jobs to Pinal so we can work where we live, so we can grow in such a way to lower the tax burden on our residents,” said David Snider, the incumbent Democrat.

Beyond that, the suggested solutions vary. Almaguer and Miller favor rolling back impact fees and other costs of doing business to make the county more business-friendly. Snider places more emphasis on the need to partner with other communities and build opportunities through cooperation.

This fall marks a turning point for the county Board of Supervisors as the districts have been redrawn after the county reached the population threshold mandating a five-member board. District 3 continues to revolve around Casa Grande but no longer includes the Maricopa area.
