Oro Valley Mayoral Candidate Joe Winfield Calls Out Special Interest Influence in Oro Valley, AZ

A fundamental power of town government is to regulate land use & zoning. Land use and zoning should reflect the desires of our community as expressed in the Town’s General Plan.

The incumbents have willingly accepted tens of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from developers.

Zoning changes proposed by these same developers and approved by the incumbents have resulted in significant intensification of zoning densities, which many residents believe is contrary to the General Plan.

I believe that by accepting tens of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from developers the incumbents are beholden to developers and not the community.

For this reason, I have made a pledge to not knowingly accept campaign contributions from any person or entity that might benefit from doing business with the Town.

Please view the following video and decide for yourself if accepting tens of thousands of dollars from Special Interests is a good idea for the governance of our community, and don’t forget to vote August 28.
