Arizona Theatre Company has elected Dr. Mary Jo Ghory and Dina Scalone-Romero to its board of trustees, and chosen Arlene Webster as an honorary trustee.

Ghory rejoins the board, having previously served as a trustee from 2001 through 2007.  She is a clinical assistant professor of pediatrics at the University of Arizona, has been a subscriber since 1989 and had chaired the committee for the fashion show fundraiser, “Dudes, Dolls and Divas” for two years.

Scalone-Romero is a New York native who worked with FEMA in the aftermath of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and led the distribution of the United Way’s 9/11 fund to victims in the borough of Brooklyn. She oversaw efforts to provide services and compensation to 5,000 residents impacted by the 9/11 attacks as a director for Safe Horizon. In 2004, Scalone-Romero became managing director of Stages of Learning, an organization dedicated to establishing theater as a measure of literacy in New York schools. She recently moved to Tucson and is currently the community relations manager for Cox Communications.

Webster works at Tucson Medical Center as a registered nurse in the ambulatory surgery center. She has been involved in the theater community for close to 40 years, and previously served on the board of Arizona Theatre Company for over twenty years. She currently also serves on the board of the Tucson Medical Center Foundation, and in the past has been involved in the Junior League of Tucson and worked with the Tucson Botanical Gardens on its annual Butterfly Gala.

Board members are elected to three-year terms, and may serve two consecutive terms before taking at least a year hiatus from the board.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
