"Pima County Has A Spending Problem"
"You voted to approve a bond package which involved a $76 million budget for a new court house. As we put the finishing touches on the building, the budget has ballooned to $156 million complete with a $317,000 art project from an artist in California. This $156 million consists of $22.4 million from the General Fund that should have been used for road repairs, and $58 million in non-voter approved debt. This is more debt for Pima County residents.

Colorado River Reserves Less Than Half Capacity
Both Lake Powell and Lake Mead are main sources of Colorado River water. They remain at less than half capacity, at 44%. These tow reservoirs represent 82% of all river water reservoirs. The reservoir system is, in total, at 47% capacity. As we've previously noted, Arizona is the first state to lose water rights if there is a severe distribution restriction of Colorado River water.
