I was very disappointed to discover that a small group of citizens is planning a legal move to block the Oro Valley acquisition of the El Conquistador Country Club (ECCC) property, which jeopardizes a much-wanted community center.

During its “Shop Oro Valley” Summer Campaign from May 1 to July 1, Oro Valley shoppers spending $25 or more at an Oro Valley business were eligible to submit their receipts for a weekly raffle, sponsored by 18 Oro Valley businesses. Thanks to the generosity of our participating businesses, the Town was able to award 48 prizes such as gift cards and certificates for free services. Sandra Johnson, a 20 year resident and first time Shop Oro Valley Campaign participant, is the lucky winner of the $500 gift card basket. Vestar donated the grand prize, which features various gift cards for great shopping, dining and entertainment at Oro Valley Marketplace. During the eight-week campaign, 975 entries were submitted. The receipts, valued at $62,276.38, represent goods and services from 116 Oro Valley businesses. Also during the summer campaign, shoppers who purchased a $100 OV Dollars gift card from the Greater Oro Valley Chamber of Commerce received a bonus $10 to spend! The OV Dollars card program operates much like a regular gift card, but instead of only being able to use it at one retailer, shoppers can swipe their card at any of the participating businesses in Oro Valley. During the campaign, the Chamber sold 188 gift cards totaling $61,190 in sales, which are spent in the community. “Sales tax is a major source of revenue for the town,” said Mayor Satish I. Hiremath. “Shopping locally is a direct investment in our community to fund public safety and infrastructure.”
