State Rep. Teresa Martinez has a message for the governor about State Route 347.   

The Republican lawmaker will deliver a growing stack of letters — wrapped in a red ribbon and bow, she said — to Gov. Katie Hobbs during an event in Casa Grande tomorrow morning.  

Martinez said she has collected 167 letters, emails and comments from her constituents based on their concerns with traffic issues and the proposed scrapping of the Riggs Road overpass 

It’s a brazen step, but Martinez said she believes it to be the best way to get the governor’s attention, especially after Hobbs bragged about allotting $50 million to SR 347 and 238 late last year.  

“The point is to show Gov. Hobbs just how important this issue is to my Maricopa constituents,” she said.  

Martinez said any additional comments for the governor be sent to her direct email, [email protected], by 3 p.m. today. 

“Please be polite and to the point when writing about your concerns with 347,” she said.
