Back in January I reported that there were 6 candidates for 4 seats on the Marana Town Council (click here for previous article). The primary was held today and this was an all-mail-in ballot election. Pima County Elections just reported the results:
Patti Comerford, incumbent 3189 17.01%
Ken Crotts 2586 13.79%
Herb Kai, incumbent 3722 19.85%
Carol McGorray, incumbent 3313 17.67%
David Morales 2195 11.71%
Jon Post, incumbent 3679 19.62%
Looks like all the incumbents lead tonight’s primary.
David C. Morales is the father of former Tucsoncitizen.com popular blogger David Abie Morales aka “Three Sonorans”.
Their election webpage states: “Any candidate receiving a majority of all votes cast at the Primary Election will be declared elected without running in the General Election” on May 21, 2013. So now stay tuned for that election in May.
Also on the ballot were 2 Questions:
Shall the Town of Marana be authorized to acquire and operate the Marana Wastewater Reclamation Facility (located in the southeast quarter of Section 14, Township 11 South, Range 10 East, G&SRB&M) and the wastewater facilities, setback areas, access rights, and current and future sewage conveyance system and service area connected to or association with it?
Arizona law requires cities and towns to obtain voter authorization before construction, purchase acquisition or lease of any plant or property of a public utility. This measure will determine whether the Town of Marana shall be authorized to acquire and operate the wastewater facilities specified in this measure’s official title.
Shall the Town of Marana be authorized to acquire and operate the Rillito Vista Wastewater Reclamation Facility (location southeast of the I-10/Tangerine Road interchange in the east half of Section 6, Township 12 South, Range 12 East, G&SRB&M) and the wastewater facilities, setback areas, access rights, and current and future sewage conveyance system and service area connected to or associated with it?
Pima County December 18 “Option A” settlement proposal provides for Marana to operate this small wastewater system serving about 60 residential lots. Arizona law requires voter authorization for the Town of Marana to acquire and operate the wastewater facilities specified in this measure’s official title.
