Pima County Supervisor Ally Miller's Paving Project Benefited Political Ally, Campaign Contributors

Posted By on Fri, Feb 21, 2014 at 7:47 PM

Earlier today, The Range reported that Pima County Supervisor Ally Miller moved dollars from major streets that the Pima County Transportation Department recommended be fixed to her own neighborhood.

But now the Weekly has learned that the road project also benefited her political allies and contributors. Miller collected $1,080 from residents along Oasis Road.

Among them: Sherese Steffens, a longtime Miller pal who helped her form the Pima County Tea Party Patriots. Steffens was one of Miller’s first contributors, giving her $100 Sept. 1, 2011, as Miller began fundraising for her campaign.

Steffens and her husband, Randy Steffens, ultimately gave Miller a total of $630 for her 2012 campaign.

Another contributor, Sherry Potter, gave Miller’s 2012 campaign $250 on Nov. 11, 2011, and a third, Linda Jimenez, gave Miller a total of $200 for the 2012 campaign in two separate occasion in May and September of 2012. Potter managed Republican Tanner Bell's unsuccessful 2012 campaign against Pima County Supervisor Sharon Bronson.

Miller's fellow supervisors moved the remainder of the road repair money from District 1 to District 4 earlier this week, prompting her to complain that they were retaliating against her for her ongoing criticism of them.

Miller did not return a phone call from the Weekly regarding her push to rearrange transportation projects in her district.
