Maxine Brown TAC Interview

The Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) is a citizen panel appointed by the Pinal County Board of Supervisors.  The TAC is a recommending body for transportation planning, construction, and maintenance projects within the county's jurisdictional boundaries.  The TAC annually reviews, updates, and recommends a fiscally constrained five-year transportation improvement and maintenance program.

We recently had the opportunity to sit down with TAC member Maxine Brown and asked her a few questions regarding her experience as well as the importance of transportation project investment in our communities. Ms. Brown has been a resident of Pinal County for the last 28 years, on the Pinal County Transportation Advisory Committee for the last 10 and a half years, and was the Town Manager of Patagonia, AZ from 1978-1985, and Executive Director of Central AZ Association of Governments (CAAG) – now Central AZ Governments (CAG) – from 1991-2011.

What is your experience in transportation?

The TAC has completed several projects in District 5.  Currently, I am proud that the needs of Kings Ranch Road and Peralta Road in Gold Canyon are two projects that will be completed in 2025-2026.

In your opinion, what is the biggest opportunity in Pinal County? 

I believe our biggest opportunity in Pinal County and each of the local districts is for citizens to come together and work for the betterment of their local area and the county.  Great accomplishments can take place, like the projects completed over the past several years with the sales tax the Board of Supervisors oversees within put from the TAC.
