According to the unofficial results, the City of Tucson’s new mayor will be Jonathan Rothschild. Rothschild, a Democrat, is beating Republican Rick Grinnell 41,438 to 30,435.

Green Party candidate Mary DeCamp received 3,617 votes in Tuesdays General Election.

This will be Rothschild’s first term, as incumbent Mayor Bob Walkup did not run for reelection.

This will be the first time since 1999 that a Democrat will hold the office of mayor in Tucson.

In Ward I of the council elections, Regina Romero won in a landslide, defeating Beryl Baker.

In Ward 2, it looks like Paul Cunningham will be headed to the council, receiving 42,206 votes, defeating Jennifer Rawson.

In Ward 4, incumbent Shirley Scott currently holds a slight lead over newcomer Tyler Vogt.

Scott currently has 37,572 votes, while Vogt has 35,818. With 274,706 registered voters in the City of Tucson, 76,133 cast ballots, which is a 27.7 percent voter turnout.

School elections

Voters approved the Marana School District’s override, known as Proposition 400, receiving 6,533 yes votes, and 5,695 votes against the measure.

The controversial Oracle School District bond did not fair well with voters, with 3,125 no votes, and 1,851 yes votes.

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.
