On July 31 ballots for electing the Town of Oro Valley leadership will be mailed out.
This is a critical election for the future of Oro Valley and needs all registered voters to participate.
The current leadership of Mayor Hiremath and Councilmembers Snider, Hornat and Waters has clearly demonstrated the vision, intelligence, experience and commitment to the long term quality of life of our citizens. They successfully led the financial restructuring of revenue and expenses to turn a large deficit into a surplus for 2013/2014.
They have begun the development of the Naranja Town Park with its oustanding potential for recreational and cultural uses. Their commitment to our historical responsibility in the Steam Pump Ranch has transformed this facility/land into a viable asset where our Farmer’s Market thrives.
The development of the OV pool into a world class facility has put the Town on the map.
The above achievements illustrate the vision of their decision making.
Do you enjoy living in OV? If so, you need to participate in this election to preserve and expand the security, educational opportunities, the excellent parks, recreational, and cultural activities/facilities, and open space commitments of OV.
An analogy would be if one compares a citizen to a large stockholder in a highly successful company. Wouldn’t you want to reelect the board of directors who were responsible for your return on investment. This is similar to protecting the value of your home.
I urge you to get the facts; meet the candidates; and most of all take a few minutes to vote.
Former Oro Valley mayor
