We are really happy to have a new candidate for mayor to talk about with high praise.  Many of you already know Pat Straney.  We have known him through our Rancho Vistoso HOA.  Larry worked with him as a Director on the HOA Board, and we have attended many meetings since he became the President of the Board and was continually re-elected.

What we admire about Pat is his calm demeanor, his tactful approaches to problems, his willingness to listen to individual’s concerns, and a very steady hand to guide individuals to group consensus.  Pat is not only highly educated, but has in-depth experience in dealing with groups, individuals, opposing viewpoints and has shown his well-honed skills in bringing understanding and group approval to tough decisions.

Pat is a gentleman and a strong leader.  We are so very fortunate to have him be willing to devote the time and effort needed to lead Oro Valley into the future.  Please review his website; www.VotePatStraneyMayor.com  If you can help him get elected: please volunteer.  In any case be certain that you are eligible to vote in August....and make sure you vote for Pat.

The mail-in ballots are to be sent out July 31, and the regular Primary is August 26.  This is a very important election for all of us.


Brenda and Larry Ryan, Oro Valley
