Regional collaboration and transportation were the themes shared by Queen Creek Mayor Gail Barney as he accepted the role as chair of the Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG). “One of MAG’s most important responsibilities is transportation planning. The importance of our transportation network cannot be overstated – it affects just about every aspect of our daily lives. It is how we get home, how we get to work, how our children get to school, how we shop and dine and how we travel. It impacts our economy and our quality of life.”
Beyond regional transportation, Mayor Barney outlined economic development priorities for the region including attracting new employers, tourism, trade, air quality and addressing homelessness.
