Learn about Joe Winfield and see why it’s time
for a new direction in Oro Valley
- Employing community-based solutions to end millions in golf losses and encourage straight talk about the suitability of the community center.
- Imposing fiscal discipline to stem the steady and steep increase of the Town’s budget, which has grown nearly 72% in eight years.
- Moderating growth and conforming to land use and zoning designations that contribute to keeping Oro Valley’s unique community identity as a special place to live.
Because I have experienced the success and exhilaration of when a community works together toward a shared vision, I feel dismayed that my own community’s vision has been hijacked by special interests and complicit town leaders. My one-on-one conversations with many of you have reinforced my sentiments that it’s time for a new direction! In the coming days and weeks I will share with you the issues that concern me and many of our fellow citizens.
I have worked with all levels of government, including within federal government budget system to enhance recreation in spite of declining budgets.
I have helped facilitate close to home recreation through the construction of over 400 miles of trails and promoted conservation through restoring riparian areas throughout Arizona.
