BOS supports GC resident’s proposal for “Rose Mofford Memorial Highway”
Among the items unanimously passed in the consent agenda for the Sept. 20, 2017, Pinal County Board of Supervisors regular session was a resolution to support a proposal to the AZ State Board on Geographic and Historic Names to rename US 60 through Pinal County as the Rose Mofford Memorial Highway. The proposal was penned by Gold Canyon resident Roberto Reveles, who brought the issue to the attention of the BOS in a Call to the Public last month, stating, “Rose Mofford, who frequently traveled on US 60 between her beloved hometown of Globe and Phoenix, clearly is a name that, more than any other name, is most historically relevant and appropriate for US 60.”
The BOS resolution states, “Rose Mofford was the first female Governor of the State of Arizona and served the public in many capacities over many years.”
The Arizona State Board on Geographic and Historic Names will consider the name change application at a hearing on Sept. 25.
