The Future of Pinal County

Pinal County is a growing and vibrant county with a fabulous lifestyle and identity. We have great potential, but we need leaders with vision and foresight to ensure continued progress.

We can no longer wait for great things to happen to us. We need to come together, work as one and make our voice heard. Together we can create the excitement, the synergy and the momentum that is vital to ensure our local needs are met.

Where Do We Start?

We need to see more economic development come to Pinal County. With a growing population, we should be able to attract much more business investments and high-paying employment opportunities than we are currently experiencing.

Chuck’s extensive background at the city, state and federal level can provide new leadership that is needed to bring these important economic opportunities to Pinal County.

Chuck Will Fight for Lower Taxes

We all work hard to make a living and provide for our families. But when government tells us we have to pay more and more in taxes each year, it becomes discouraging. 

Young families, seniors  and those on fixed incomes can hardly afford to pay more taxes and are usually hurt the most by tax increases.

It may surprise you to learn that over the last few years, property taxes have, in many cases, gone up. As your home’s values increase, so does your tax liability.

It’s shocking to know that seniors and struggling homeowners are actually paying higher taxes year after year. This is especially burdensome on young families just starting out and those on fixed incomes.

Taxes don’t have to go up! Chuck will fight to lower taxes on families and homes.

There is a Better Way

New development brings in new sources of tax revenues. This influx of new monies into the treasury can be used to lower taxes and improve roads and other services.

When our local economy is booming and diverse, there are more taxes dollars and we enjoy a higher standard of living. Well-planned economic development brings an increase in local competition, better product selection and lower prices – all without raising taxes.

Chuck Supports Safer Neighborhoods

As a former Police Officer, Chuck understands the need to protect our homes, our families and our neighborhoods from increases in crime.

Proper and adequate law enforcement requires proactive leadership, experienced insight, ample funding and targeted planning.  With these important needs, we must elect leaders who will continue to support law enforcement, even under heavy public pressure.

As a former police officer, Chuck knows how to stand up on behalf of the people who support law enforcement and will never attempt to defund our protectors in uniform.

“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.
