Supervisor Bill Gates

“We are the nation’s fastest-growing county and there is no reason why we can’t also be its most forward thinking,” Gates said today. “By using technology once unimaginable, leveraging big data once thought incomprehensible, and changing processes once thought immutable, we can position Maricopa County as a leader in citizen centered service in the coming decade.”

In a speech [text/video], he called out New River specifically:

“To my friends in New River, we’re going to expand on the progress we’ve had on water issues in the
area, with help from EPCOR and the Arizona Corporation Commission,” he said. “And my hope is that future neighborhoods can be built to succeed with infrastructure in place from day one.”

Gates stressed collaboration with city and state entities.

“We must collaborate,” he said, “with cities and towns on law enforcement, roads, and water management; with the State Land Department & Arizona Department of Real Estate on sustainable growth; with my friends at the City of Phoenix on projects that make our region more attractive to families and businesses; and with our Courts and the state legislature on laws and practices that guide our service.”
