While there it is clear the Oro Valley mayoral candidates have different management styles, another big difference in this election cycle is campaign finances.

While challenger Pat Straney is sticking with a grass-roots campaign that has him using $1,800 of his own money to campaign, current Mayor Satish Hiremath has out-gained his opponent through contributions from citizens and developers.

According to public records, HSL Properties, which is building a new complex in town limits, has given Hiremath's reelection efforts nearly $7,000 in recent years.

HSL Properties is built the 288-unit Encantada Ranch at Steam Pump Village. The apartment complex was recently opened to the public.

Hiremath has also received nearly $3,000 from local developer Diamond Ventures.
