After Republican Martha McSally led by a small margin since Tuesday, Democrat Ron Barber took the lead in the still undecided Congressional District 2 race.

According to the unofficial numbers, Barber currently leads with 123,650 votes. McSally isn't far behind with 123,064.

The state has 10 days after an election to count provisional and early ballots that were turned in on election day. While Pima County had 80,000 ballots to go through, earlier this week, Secretary of State Ken Bennett reported 602,000 ballots still had to be counted before the 10-day deadline expires.

Barber and McSally have agreed to wait until all the counting is complete before a winner is declared.

A canvas of the votes is slated for Dec. 3.

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.
