Oro Valley Don't Need No Stinking (General) Election

Posted By on Wed, Mar 14, 2012 at 11:00 AM

Oro Valley voters saved themselves another trip to the, well, mailbox, since Tuesday's all-mail primary election resulted in all three seats getting filled.

Incumbent Bill Garner and challengers Brendan Burns and Mike Zinkin all appeared on more than 50 percent of the ballots cast, which means each of them is automatically voted into office and negates a need for the town's planned general election in May.

The winning trio bested incumbent Steve Solomon and newcomers Mike Napier and Fred Narcaroti.

The third seat up for grabs was previously held by Barry Gillaspie, who did not seek another term.

Burns, Garner and Zinkin — who narrowly lost the town's mayoral election in 2010 — will be sworn into office in June.
