Oro Valley Town Councilman Brendan Burns.

I am currently visiting Oro Valley to consider a job offer and relocation. Your community's safety record played a large role in getting me to this point. However, I must admit reading of inappropriate behavior by two of your Council Members in this publication's on-line version, is giving me reason to pause and reconsider. Not only am I taken aback by their individual acts, but question how two such characters could get elected and wonder how they reflect Oro Valley's values.
This story is sad on many levels. Last week, the local TV stations also covered this story, and I am glad to see the Explorer did a bit more research. I feel for the family involved....they are innocent victims in this mess. Maybe it's time for Burns to consider stepping away from his council seat.
It seems as though we have had a string of bad council people elected in recent years. First there was one that quit because she was alledgedly embroiled in a sex scandal with the Town Manager. Then came the councilman who threw around sexual and racist comments according to a published report. Now we have another report of an elected official, a lawyer even, who can seem to obey the law. Who keeps electing these people?????
Domestic violence abusers ALWAYS claim the "incidents" are private and a family matter. This man is an elected official and still frequently breaking the law. Hmmmm. I'd think twice, Oro Valley, about re-electing this dangerous man. I hope his wife and kids stay safe.
