Over the last five months the candidates running for the Oro Valley Town Council have been asked every conceivable question about every issue affecting the town. The Northwest EXPLORER wants Oro Valley voters to make informed decisions May 18. Instead of adding further to his cacophony of querying on issues, we have decided to ask the 10 candidates in the run off election questions that will reveal more about how the candidates make their decisions rather than what they've decided about town issues. We asked each candidate two hypothetical scenarios dealing with land use and economic development. We have drafted these scenarios to have a sense of reality to them but made them sufficiently vague so that no reader could mistake them for being real. The candidates were limited to 1,000 words total to answer the two scenarios.
