Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick, a candidate in Arizona’s Congressional District 1, today is launching an “Arizona Values, Arizona First” tour in the final two weeks before the Aug. 28 primary as part of her ongoing efforts to talk with voters about issues that matter.

Kirkpatrick, whose family roots in CD1 go back nearly 100 years, will visit nearly 20 cities and towns throughout the district during the next two weeks.

“The folks across this district are my neighbors, and I share their values,” Kirkpatrick said. “No matter where I travel in CD1, their message is the same: People are fed up with partisan politics, and they want a leader who will put our district and Arizona first.”

“What really matters here are good jobs, strong schools and a fair shot for families to get ahead,” she said. “It means protecting Medicare from drastic cuts or privatization. And it means being fiscally responsible and balancing the budget the right way – and not on the backs of these hard-working families.”


Some of the stops on the Arizona Values, Arizona First include:

Casa Grande

Flagstaff

Globe

Holbrook

Marana

The Marana capital improvements 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?

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.
