The Town Council voted Wednesday to hire a federal lobbyist to advocate for transportation, public safety and other money to help the growing town.

The council voted 5-2, with council members Jon Wootten and Lisa Coletto-Cohen against the move. Wootten and Coletto-Cohen expressed concern about the rate of return on investing in lobbyists.

The town is proceeding with the $92,000 contract without financial support from Pinal County and Apache Junction, which were initially expected to help pick up the tab, Town Manager John Kross said.

Vice Mayor Gail Barney said it is important for the town to go ahead and work with a federal lobbyist to show Queen Creek is being proactive.
