Ballots are still being counted in the Oro Valley Town Council Primary Election. 

With six candidates running, three seats are to be filled on the Council, as incumbent Bill Garner is up for reelection, incumbent Steve Solomon is running for his first official term after being appointed 18 months ago, and Councilman Barry Gillaspie declined to run for reelection.

As of 2:00 p.m., the polls show Bill Garner leading the way with 5,576 votes. Newcomer Brendan Burns trails Garner, with 5,067 votes, and Mike Zinkin comes in third with 4,975 votes.

Rounding out the bottom three are Steve Solomon, with 4,285 votes, Mark Napier with 3,521 votes, and Fred Narcaroti with 2,147 votes. 45 write-in votes were also cast.

As it sits, Garner, Burns and Zinkin have each claimed a Council seat with no need for a General Election, as each candidate received more than the required 50 percent plus one vote of the total ballots cast.

Interim Town Manager, Greg Caton, said he does not expect the final tallies to drastically affect the current outcome. If Burns, Zinkin, and Garner win the election, they will take their Council seats on June 6. 

Should a General Election be required, it will be held on May 15. The last day to register to vote in the General Election is April 16, and ballots will begin to be sent out to registered voters via mail on April 19.

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.
