It’s Time For A New Direction

Making San Tan Valley
The Crown Jewel of Pinal County

San Tan Valley is a growing and vibrant community with a fabulous lifestyle and identity. We have great potential as a community, but we need leaders with vision to make that greatness become our reality.

San Tan Valley can no longer wait for great things to happen to us. It’s time to take charge of our own destiny.

Where Do We Start?

Local Economic Development and High Paying Jobs

We have seen economic progress and development in other parts of Pinal County but not in San Tan Valley.

For Example:

Coolidge: Nikola Motors (Hydrogen Truck Manufacturer)
• $1 Billion Investment
• Up to 2000 new jobs

Casa Grande: Lucid Motors (Electric car Company)
• $700 million Investment
• 700+ jobs

Casa Grande: Nacero Inc.  (Converts Natural Gas to Gasoline)
• 3+ Billion Investment
• Up to 2000 new jobs

We applaud these accomplishments and are grateful for them. But we also need to see projects of this caliber coming to San Tan Valley.

We have a local work force that is twice that of Casa Grande. We’re ready and willing but we have not been provided the same level of economic focus as have other communities.

With a population of well over 100,000 people, San Tan Valley is the largest community in Pinal County. We should be able to attract much more business investments and high-paying employment opportunities than we are currently experiencing.

Imagine driving only 10-15 minutes to work instead of almost an hour or more. We can change all that with quality industry and business development through new leadership.

With new direction, we can quickly plan, design and zone San Tan Valley more effectively. We can reduce regulatory red tape and streamline the permitting processes to prove a faster, easier, more business-friendly process.

And, not just business friendly but, San Tan Valley can become an extremely effective economic hub by redesigning ourselves as a business fertile community. In this way San Tan Valley Valley becomes a desirable destination for high quality business investments.

This will be one of Chuck’s main focuses as Pinal County Supervisor. San Tan Valley will no longer be ignored.

Chuck Gray’s extensive background at the city, state and federal level can provide a new direction that is so desperately needed to bring these important economic opportunities to our community.

Judy Thornell:

“I met Senator Chuck Gray several years ago when I needed his expertise and guidance.  I found Chuck to be a person who listens intently and then finds a way to help using his knowledge, experience and thoughtfulness.  

Chuck is a visionary whose life-long dedication to serving and problem solving makes him uniquely qualified to serve the people of Pinal County as County Supervisor.” – Judy Thornell is Board Secretary & Director of External Partnerships for Return US Home (RUSH) – RUSH is a Nonprofit focused on Parental Child Abduction Prevention)
