As you may be aware, I have been placed on the November 3, 2015 ballot for recall, along with my fellow council members Joe Hornat, Mary Snider and Lou Waters. Part of the recall process is for me to declare whether I will resign my seat or not. Be assured that I have no intention of resigning. I welcome the opportunity to be on the recall ballot with Joe, Mary, and Lou.
Had the county taken longer to validate the signatures, my name would have been on the ballot next year instead of this year, costing the taxpayers at least $50,000.
The timing on the recall gives not only me, but also Joe, Mary and Lou, another opportunity to highlight and emphasize all that has been accomplished over the past five years as a result of our leadership. Since 2010, the Town of Oro Valley has been recognized for reinvesting in our roads, preserving public safety and greatly enhancing our parks and recreation.
As the recall process moves forward, I encourage all residents of Oro Valley to become familiar with the facts and to weigh the rhetoric. Joe, Mary, Lou and I have begun to provide you with information about the realities associated with our responsibilities, record and accomplishments. I am confident that caring and concerned voters will vote again to retain the rational majority in office.
I hope you will watch, like and share this short video about giving back. I am honored to serve as your mayor and I hope you will visit www.HiremathForMayor.com and www.OVLeadership.com for more information about this important election.
