Posted: Friday, August 3, 2012 1:42 pm

The White Mountain Independent, a top news source for Eastern Arizona communities including Show Low, Holbrook, St. Johns and Snowflake, endorsed Congressional District 1 candidate Ann Kirkpatrick on Friday.

Kirkpatrick, a Democrat, is the favorite in the Aug. 28 primary. The other Democrat in the race is Wenona Benally Baldenergo.

The endorsement said, "Representation of our voting district in its first decade has been like a game of Whac–A–Mole. ... The one person in the race that has tangible ties to the White Mountains is Ann Kirkpatrick, and we think those ties and her moderate voting record in Congress are reason enough to support her."

Earlier this week, Kirkpatrick's likely Republican opponent Jonathan Paton was endorsed by the Arizona Republic. Paton is running against Patrick Gatti and Doug Wade in the primary.

Early ballots went out to voters on Aug. 2.

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.
