    As if there’s no ‘Local Government’ outside of Maricopa County.

    Question: Are ‘local government’ issues in Flagstaff or Yuma or Sierra Vista the same facing Gilbert, Tempe, or Mesa?

    Not.

  2. Well, is there another state where 3/5 of the population lives in one county?

    Maricopa is simply too big and should be broken up into 3 or 4 counties. Small-government conservatives should understand this.

  3. Veritas Vincit says

    Breaking Maricopa up into 3 new counties only makes sense.
