Three candidates for the Arizona House of Representatives in District 26 are locked in a near-even heat, according to early results from the Nov. 2 election.

Upstart Republican Terri Proud held a 1-point lead over Democratic Rep. Nancy Young Wright, with Republican Rep. Vic Williams right behind.

With 19 of 90 precincts counted as of 9:24 p.m., Proud had 34.04 percent of the votes (24,987), Young Wright 33.01 percent (24,233) and Williams 32.78 percent (24,066 votes).

Two of the three would be elected to two-year terms in the Arizona House. The District covers much of Northwest Tucson east of I-10, extending into SaddleBrooke in Southern Pinal County.

In the District 26 Senate race, incumbent Republican Sen. Al Melvin led challenger Cheryl Cage by just over 5 points, 52.6-47.3 percent. With 19 of 90 precincts counted, Melvin had 26,956 votes, Cage 24,231 votes.

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.
