Statement regarding Proposition 208 “Red4ED”

The Buckeye Valley Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors has voted to oppose Proposition 208
because of the hardship it could cause small businesses. However, the opposition’s media blitz is
misleading in the fact that they do not state that the income level of $250,000 (for individuals) and
$500,000 (for couples) is a net amount, not a gross amount.


$25,000 Grant from Maricopa County Cares Act

Call Deanna for help expediting the application.
$25,000 grant from  Maricopa County Cares Act funding. After you apply, please email Deanna at and she will let Supervisor Hickman know and he can expedite the funding.

Welcome back, thank you for your continued support!
