Dear Arizona Daily Star Editor,

Mayor Joe Winfield shares ads with three bipartisan council members because these candidates refuse real estate developers’ money. Instead, they listen to their constituents and follow Oro Valley’s guidelines for responsible, environmentally sound development.

Mayor Winfield has improved our park system, our town’s credit rating, and saved us millions of dollars without adding any new taxes. He has added over 30 new businesses and convinced the state to finally begin repairing Oracle Road. His financial oversight of our town has received three national awards.

Promoting law and order, he hired an outstanding new police chief, four new officers, increased the police department’s budget, and brought our police pension fund up to 100%.

We support Mayor Winfield, and Town Council members Joyce Jones-Ivey, Josh Nicolson, and Melanie Barrett for re-election on Aug. 2.

April and John Hoffman

Oro Valley
