Leaders from Arizona’s Legislature today joined a growing coalition of leaders throughout the state who support for Jeff Flake to serve in the United States Senate.

Steve Pierce, President, Arizona State Senate: “Like myself, Jeff Flake was raised on an Arizona ranch, where he learned the values of hard work and honest dealing. It’s clear that Jeff has not lost that. In fact, it’s been those values that enabled him to stand up to earmarks and wasteful spending in Congress, even when it was unpopular to do so. He’ll be a great U.S. Senator for Arizona.”

Andy Tobin, Speaker, Arizona House of Representatives: “I am proud to support Jeff Flake because he puts country over self. In sending Jeff to the U.S. Senate to represent this great state, we’ll have a voice for fiscal responsibility – something that we sorely need more of today. Moreover, we will have someone on our side that will fight to change the way business is done there. He’s done that in the House; we can count on him to do it in the Senate.”

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.
