    I really hope this "AZ01 At Work" will succeed, but the sad fact is that the American economy, already teetering under the Republicans, became much worse under the free spending, never frugal Democrats. With Obamacare mandates and high corporate taxes, we are told recently that 75 percent of statistically recorded jobs are part time, and most are at Walmart, Macdonalds, and retail service sector. Most of these jobs will not support a family or individual, and people are forced to hold two or three other jobs as well.
    Kirkpatrick's party has taken credit when the good years of high employment kept us rolling, yet it was the private capitalist system that was doing the real work, nothing the Democrats seem to do is right. Their mantra is socialist capitalism, where cronies are rewarded and enemies punished....Obama, in his own words, has said this, and indeed he practices it.
    But the blame for high unemployment can also be placed on Republicans as well, because they follow the idea that the corporations are sacrosanct and need only be concerned about profits for a few. The workers who make the corporations and businesses profitable by their hard work are denied basic health insurance and benefits because the cost infringes on profit. But the globalization of jobs hurt us badly in the past 20 years, as many American companies shipped jobs overseas instead of trying to keep more Americans employed. Both Democrats and Republicans failed to stimulate and help American business to reduce job depletion here. Our job picture will not improve unless Republicans, Democrats, and big business get together and forget about their party's economic ideology and do some real work on getting people into jobs, particularly young people.

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.
