Sure! Paul Loomis has his supporters, but there are good reasons why he came in last in the recently primary.The overwhelming majority of the voters were sick & tired of Loomis and his cunning ways.
Satish is a nice man. He asked to meet with me a short time after he announced his candidacy. We had a cordial meeting. "Why," I asked, "are you running for mayor." "Two reasons," Satish responded. One was because he believed he could do a good job, and secondly, he said---not verbatim, but close enough--- We have to get Loomis out of there. He's a disaster!
Why bring this up now?
Loomis has now publicly announced his support for Hiremath. That's fine, but what many in the public do NOT know is this:
The new council will appoint a person to take the vacant seat of Salette Latas on June 2.
Paul Loomis has already lobbied for that vacant seat.
If Hiremath, Hornat & Waters get elected, joining Snider, don't you think they'll appoint "one of their own?"
Who's on that short list? Yup! Paul Loomis who we finally voted out of office.
We can NOT allow this to happen. PLEASE---Vote for MIKE ZINKIN & ONLY MATT RABB>
Our future depends on it.
For those interested, here's the Loomis letter to The Explorer.
Loomis gives support to Hiremath
Thank you, Oro Valley, for your support over the past 12 years. We have a great town, and I am thankful for the opportunities I have had to serve as your mayor.
The successful transition from my administration to the next is important for Oro Valley during these tough economic times. Dr. Satish Hiremath has demonstrated his commitment to Oro Valley for many years, and he has the experience to lead Oro Valley in the future.
Dr. Hiremath also has the support of many people who care about Oro Valley. They are committed to making Oro Valley even greater in the years to come. For these reasons, I have decided to support Satish Hiremath for mayor.
I urge all of my supporters and voters to vote for Satish Hiremath.
Mayor Paul Loomis, Oro Valley
