WE MUST INVEST IN SUSTAINABLE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
Pima County has a history of picking winners and losers such as the $15 million investment in World View and investing heavily in particular business vs. leveling the playing field for all businesses who wish to come to our community.
We should be investing in infrastructure (roads, lighting, medians, parks) and streamlining regulations and permitting process for all to entice private sector businesses to move here and invest in our community.
When Pima County buys buildings and takes them off the tax roll it is shrinking our tax base which shifts the costs to taxpaying businesses. This practice makes it more difficult for a taxpaying business to compete and discourages private sector investment.
