A candidate has stepped into the Oro Valley mayor's race, though the election is more than year away.

Local dentist Satish Hiremath last week made his plans known.

Mayor Paul Loomis has not yet said whether he would seek re-election in 2010.

"It’s been a long time coming," said Hiremath, who's lived in Oro Valley since 1990.

The May 2008 election shook up the council, Hiremath said, prompting him to act.

"To see the state of affairs in Oro Valley, I felt I could get things back on track," he said.

Hiremath said he wants to see government work for the betterment of all residents of Oro Valley, not protect the interests of a select few.

"It’s about each segment of society," he said.

Hiremath is board president of the Greater Oro Valley Arts Council. His term ends in July.

The town council primary election will be held on March 10, 2010.

The general election will be held May 18, 2010.

Candidate packets will be available beginning Sept. 7, at Oro Valley town hall, 11000 N. La Cañada Drive.

Candidates can begin to turn in their completed packets on Nov. 9.

Packets must be received no later than Dec. 9.

For more information, see the town Web site, http://www.orovalleyaz.gov">www.orovalleyaz.gov, or call 229-4700.

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.
