The four incumbents on the Oro Valley Town Council are taking the steps to run for reelection. Mayor Satish Hiremath, Vice Mayor Lou Waters and councilmembers Joe Hornat and Mary Snider have taken out papers to run for second terms.

Julie Bower, the Oro Valley town clerk, said the incumbents, along with other citizens planning to run, have between April 28 and May 28 to submit petitions.

Besides the incumbents running for the four open seats on the seven-member council, Bower said Don Bristow and Patrick Straney have picked up the required election packets and formed official candidate committees.

While they haven’t formed committees at this time, Bower said packets were also picked up by Paul Emmert, Richard Furash and John Musolf.

To be eligible to run in the 2014 election, a prospective candidate must be 18 years of age or older and have resided in Oro Valley for at least one year preceding the election.

Candidates must collect at least 279 signatures, but not more than 558 signatures on a nomination petition to be eligible for election.

The primary election will be held on Aug. 26, and the general election is Nov. 4. 

Candidates can turn in nomination paperwork from 8 a.m. on April 28 to 5 p.m. on May 28. 

Newly elected members will assume the duties of office on Nov. 18.

Current councilmembers Bill Garner, Mike Zinkin and Brendan Burns are not up for reelection in 2014.

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.
