Signatures verified in Oro Valley recall election drive

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

It appears that opponents of Oro Valley's million dollar buyout of the El Conquistador Country Club have gotten enough signatures to force a recall election for three council members.

Pima County Elections officials verified the signatures - now the town will double check them.

The next step is to formally notify the council members - Mary Snider, Lou Waters, and Joe Hornat - and that will happen some time during the next week.

Oro Valley bought the club to turn it into a rec center. It will own the golf course as part of the deal.

The town says the purchase is being made from cash reserves, interest-free, over a three-year period. Oro Valley raised the sales tax to fund ongoing maintenance and operations.

Opponents are upset the plans were not put to a public vote.
