Rising tensions between the Continental Ranch Homeowner’s Association Board and some neighborhood residents prompted a number of newcomers to run in the annual board of directors’ election. The results were finalized late last month.

The board, prior to the election, consisted of president John Lambert and members Peggy Bracken, Connie DeLarge, Karie Westphal, Robert Vollbrecht, and Marilyn Stimpson. A seventh seat, formerly belonging to Marana councilwoman Roxanne Ziegler, was vacated after she resigned in February, saying she no longer wanted to work alongside Lambert. In a June 20 meeting, she asked for Lambert’s resignation. 

Westphal’s seat was also open  after she decided not to run again, making four total spots open for the taking.

Running this year were newcomers Nick Westphal (husband to Karie), Bill Dawes, Dorothy Bruce, Richard Roberts, Larry Lemieux, and Sandra Padilla.

Incumbents Peggy Bracken and Marilyn Stimpson aimed for reelection.

Leading the way was Nick Westphal with 943 votes. He will serve as first vice president. 

Trailing Westphal were Bracken and Dawes with 924 and 900 votes respectively. Bracken will take on the role of secretary, while Dawes will act as second vice president.

The final spot went to Stimpson, who managed 851 votes. She will serve as a director. 

Lambert remains the board president, DeLarge is the treasurer, and Vollbrecht is a director. 

Failing to achieve election were Lemieux (354 votes), Roberts (304 votes), Bruce (301 votes), and Padilla (283 votes). 

Following the election, Lambert appeared at a Marana council meeting to ask for Ziegler’s resignation, claiming she is using her position on council as leverage when it comes to neighborhood issues. Ziegler, who was not present at the meeting due to personal reasons, denied Lambert’s claim in a subsequent phone interview. Council cannot require her resignation without a recall election.

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.
