Pinal County Board of Supervisors Chairman and District 3 representative David Snider has announced he will seek re-election to a new four-year term in the fall.
Snider, who is serving the final year of his firm term on the three-member board, said that although progress has been made in recent years, there is still much work to do at the county level.
“During the last three years, Pinal County started down the long path of identifying what it wants to be when it grows up – and recognizing that growth is inevitable,” Snider said in a press release. “We have come a long way from the days of 'business as usual,’ but we still have a long way yet to go.”
Snider continues to work on negotiations between Pinal County cities and the Union Pacific Railroad throughout the company’s double-tracking planning stages. According to Snider, one of his major priorities in office – a review of county land use policies – is seeing fruition through several studies, such as the Open Space and Master Trails Plan and the county’s ongoing Comprehensive Plan review.
“We must strive to learn from the two urban counties to our north and south to create a Pinal County that will meet the challenges of the future while avoiding the pitfalls of the past,” he said.
