Letter to the Editor: More questions about the town operations Editor, Superior Sun: Now I am getting a clear picture of who is actually running the town, even though it has not been clearly stated officially from the town council. The mayor is in charge. He has told some of the town employees that he calls the shots. It is unusual that he is running the town operation; but he has a full time job, Monday through Friday, with the County. So, who is being shortchanged: the Pinal County resident taxpayers or the town of Superior resident taxpayers? This mayor accused the former mayor of micro-managing the town operations and he is guilty now of managing the Town.

More so, he is directing his own personal agenda without council approval. In a recent action by the town council, the council approved the take home police vehicles of certain police personnel. The council approved this issue because it was a cost-saving measure to the community. The mayor was the only member of the council to vote against this issue; but this did not stop him. The mayor informed our police chief, who is also our public safety director, that he was not to take a vehicle home. The mayor said he was in charge and that was final. The mayor is now overruling council decisions. I guess those high-price attorneys

said it was fine. I know that the mayor will say that the chief receives a car allowance; but is his car equipped to respond to emergency situations? Wow! Southwest Gas is questioning town operations. Recently, Southwest Gas was called into town to do some repairs. They were upset that the area was not blue-staked for their digging. They were told that the town was broke and cannot afford a can of spray paint. Councilman Aguilar, don’t you work for Southwest Gas? I guess the mayor was not around to make authorization to buy the can of spray paint. Mayor, you accused the former mayor of malfeasance; you are

committing the crime. Over a week ago, you sent town employees and used Town of Superior equipment to clean up a private property. You also allowed unauthorized people, not town employees, to operate town equipment; and we are not talking about a weed eater but a tractor backhoe. I guess Curt Williams was in charge. Is he another political payback employee? Because he was screaming at the town employee as the neighbor will attest to. I am addressing a letter to the State Attorney General asking for an investigation to be launched to look at not just these issues but many others

which surround our mayor. I encourage all residents to call the State Attorney General to investigate the actions of both the mayor and the town clerk, Rita Wentzel. Why, Council, do you continue to run the town without a fulltime Town Manager or a fulltime Town Clerk, as the Town Code states.? Are you afraid there are qualified people out there for these positions? Are you just filling these positions with the mayor’s political payback program? Again, Mayor and Council, you continue not to answer questions, not just mine but of the other residents of Superior, too.

To the residents of Superior: continue to demand answers. My number is 520-827-1073. The Arizona State Attorney General number is 602-5425025. PS: I cannot believe the mayor is questioning my residency; so I am going to answer his question. I became ill the first part of this year and at this time I have to stay near my doctors who are located in the Valley. I will continue to return to Superior whenever possible. Moreover, I am committed to exposing the truth of the illegal activities our town government is doing. So be transparent, Mayor! /s/ Manuel “Mango” Ortega Longtime Superior Resident

Letter to the Editor: Rios responds to Babeu Editor: As much as he wants to run away from it, Sheriff Paul Babeu does not have a balanced general fund budget (he will likely be over by one million this year). In fact, this will be the second year

in a row that he will have exceeded his general fund budget. As an election year ploy, the Sheriff has started throwing around numbers, making accusations and trying to scare the public in an attempt

to turn your attention from the simple fact that he cannot manage the taxpayer’s money. His diversion tactic to have you to focus on the county courthouse renovations is also intended See Rios, Page 5

Letter to the Editor: Meaningful compensation Editor: It is time for meaningful compensation to become a reality in Pinal County; it is time we are true to our own sense of right because managing an organization is about people whether the organization is public or private. I am perfectly confident that if my suggestions proposed at the Board of Supervisors meeting on Wednesday and again

today, are taken to heart, we can reduce many employee issues while maintaining the best level of service to the taxpayers. When we lose our top performers due to the inability to remain competitive in the labor market, everyone who benefits from County services will suffer. Merit-based and performancebased systems are the most fair. Nothing is more certain than

that managers must reward hard workers; they have earned that reward! Across -the-board pay increases (especially one-time bonuses) that are strategically timed during an election cycle are not the prudent answer. They are an expedient answer if you wish to make the voters happy, but this is not sensible fiscal stewardship. The Board of Supervisors is continuing to exam-

Rios

not been subject to a hiring freeze and is authorized to fill any budgeted or approved positions. In addition, in this budget cycle the Sheriff’s Office requested a $3.7 million in additional funds over last year’s budget—no additional deputy positions were in that request. When you go to the polls to elect your leaders, you expect them to be able to manage their departments and their budgets. The Sheriff has failed to do both and now he wants to try and blame anyone but himself. He can dance around this issue all he wants, but when the rubber meets the road—the elected

official is ultimately in control of their office. We have worked hard with the Sheriff’s Office to get his numbers in order. The taxpayers of Pinal County have bailed him out of his own poor budgeting decisions. But yet, Paul Babeu will write letters, pontificate at the top of his lungs and try to pass the buck. It’s time that the Sheriff realizes that he runs his department and not politicize his shortcomings by blaming the Supervisors for his problems. /s/ Pete Rios, Chairman Pinal County Board of Supervisors

Continued from Page 4 to take away attention from his mismanagement and legal troubles. Every Pinal County elected official stuck to their budget this year, except for one— Paul Babeu. This is a Sheriff who oversaw a reorganization of his department that resulted in salary increases for many at the top of his organization. Paul Babeu likes to accuse county leaders of not wanting to hire more deputies. But he won’t tell you that public safety has

ine the potential for employee salary increases, although, this morning the one percent bonus proposal did not carry. Thankfully, though, our mill rate in our property taxes will likely decrease to $3.79. Make no mistake, the troubling times in Pinal County, over the last few years, have required a shared sacrifice to maintain county services. The taxpayers have seen some of the highest property tax rates in the state and the employees have seen

shrinking paychecks. While some states are funding employee benefits 100 percent, in Arizona public sector employees pay medical insurance rates comparable to the private sector and contribute 11 percent of their pay toward their pensions. Also, keep in mind that many of our County employees are property owners so they have been hit twice! It is a sound management practice to reward employees who work hard. Those workers

give 110 percent all the time and motivate improvement in others, because there is an incentive to be promoted, based on their individual merit, not across-theboard increases! All of this I know, well enough, and no matter what happens in the budget cycle, I will not stop the dialogue regarding merit-based incentives. Believe me, it is quite possible!

Letter to the Editor: In support of Paul Babeu Editor: I publicly supported Sheriff Vasquez in 2008. The People of Pinal County spoke and elected Sheriff Paul Babeu. It didn’t take long to see an improved level of service capabilities to the citizens of Pinal County. Executive management began providing clear command intent directives holding all levels of agency leaders responsible to achieve mission goals. I watched, and was impressed, as mediocre or low performing staff was being held accountable, some for the first time in their career. Emergency response times decreased and PCSO added an Air Unit which has already saved lives and interdicted criminal activity. I was proud to see our Adult Detention Facility become the only one Nationally Accredited in Arizona and delighted to finally see an

aggressive interdiction of the organized criminal smuggling operations traveling through our county. Who in their right mind, outside the criminal element, would oppose this? The active pursuit of military surplus material to supplement the mission is fiscally responsible, as well as providing strategically placed all-terrain vehicles throughout the county for rapid response for rescue/evacuation of our citizens in the event of natural or man-made disasters. I’m a career law enforcement officer and have seen much in the 34 years I’ve served with Casa Grande PD and PCSO. Without question, this is the best run Sheriff’s Office that I have ever seen. Let’s put partisan and personal attacks aside and look at the results. You are better served than you were four years ago. /s/ John Ellsworth Casa Grande

Accepting the donation from Sheriff Paul Babeu was Debbie Limon-Martinez, Chairperson of the Community Advisory Board, who resides in the TriCommunity area of Pinal County. (Submitted photo)

Pastor’s Corner By Rev. Dennis Van Gorp Family Life Christian Center In 2 Samuel 2:1 we read that David inquired of the Lord. “Shall I go up to one of the towns of Judah?” he asked. The Lord said, “Go up.” David again asked, “Where shall I go?” “To Hebron,” the Lord answered. Many times when situations or uncertainty arose; David prayed, asking for direction, advice and wisdom. Instead of relying on his own thoughts and reasoning, he asked for God to direct his thinking. There were times, however, when he didn’t bother to ask what God thought about his actions. When he saw his neighbor’s wife taking a bath next door, he didn’t think to inquire of the Lord for advice as to what to do or not to do. He was already falling into temptation and ignoring God’s commands. The popular phrase, “What would Jesus do?” requires that we spend time in prayer getting His guidance. This is easier said than done. Our tendency is to take the most natural path – where we listen to self. Notice in our text that when God answered David, he was allowed to get specific directions. Obviously, God doesn’t want to see us get lost. Any of the towns would probably have been okay, but only one would accomplish the will of God in David’s life. The many successes in his life were the result of knowing what God wanted him to do and how to do it. Sometimes the answer was given through a prophet of God. At other times, God simply spoke directly to David. Do you live a life of victories or failures? Are you asking God for direction and advice?

Continued from Page 9 this volunteer group continue its many programs such as the Character Counts Essay Contest, Mock Trial Competition, TALK Mentoring Program at the Youth Justice Center as well as the KIDS WHO CARE Project that provides youth detainees the opportunity to repair the harm caused by their crime through community service work.

Are you listening for His answers? Are you determined to follow His commands and abide by His promises? Regularly spend time talking with the Lord, getting to know and understand Him and His ways. Thank Him for the direction and guidance to keep you on the right path in your life. You won’t regret following the Lord Jesus Christ!
