While in AZ this last time I also discovered there is a move afoot to carve a new County out of parts of Navajo and Apache Counties.

They want to take the relatively small parts of both counties that actually pay property taxes and combine them to form a new county called Stigreaves. Leaving the respective reservations as the only remaining parts of the existing counties.

I am torn by this because while one of the biggest attractions for people in the current Navajo part of the new county is the claim of lowered property taxes (currently approx 3 times what I pay), I foresee my already lowest in the State property taxes here in Apache County being raised a bit from the deal.

The upside is it might create a new Red county, though I don't think it matters during a Presidential election.
