Today, U.S. Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick, D-Ariz., along with 80 Republican and Democratic members of Congress from both chambers, will gather to unveil a legislative reform package and highlight the lawmakers’ goal of finding common ground and taking action.

The Make Government Work package features nine common-sense bills designed to make government more efficient, effective and less wasteful. It is the first legislative package offered by the No Labels Problem Solvers Coalition.

"I’ve often said that bipartisanship is the best way to get things done in Congress,” Kirkpatrick said. “So I’m pleased to be a part of the Problem Solvers Coalition and work with like-minded folks who are focused on results instead of rancor."

    I hope this coalition truly works. We need genuine bipartisanship for the good of a country we all love, and we need to make it successful through civility of discourse and consensus.

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.
