OUR VISION

Pinal county Town Hall’s Vision is to preserve and improve the quality of life for all who live, work, and visit Pinal County.

Pinal County Town Hall is an assembly of delegates that identifies critical issues facing Pinal County and creates a forum for education and exploration of a single topic each year. Town Hall draws upon the diversity of our delegates to promote public discussion and consideration of issues.
