What does the name Herb Kai mean to you? Some recognize the name as Marana's Vice Mayor.
Those of our neighbors living in Catalina Shadows or the custom homes at Palisades get frightened beyond belief when the name "Kai" comes up.
Because Herb Kai and his family own some 271 acres of land in and around the only entrance to their homes.
That's fine. What's not fine is the fact for the last five years and more, the Kai's have been coming to the Oro Valley Council requesting a General Plan Amendment to change the zoning.
What do they want?
Well, among other things, offices, shops, restaurants, housing and a continuing-care center for seniors have been requested.
Why bring this up now, you ask?
Anybody driving on 1st Ave from Oracle road towards Rancho Vistoso Blvd can't help but notice six candidate signs on Kai's property---- two each for Hiremath, Hornat & Waters.
Why is that an issue?
Who do you think will help Herb Kai with a General Plan Amendment, if elected?
Yup!It's those that have their signs there.
ONLY MIKLE ZINKIN & MATT RABB ARE ON RECORD OF STATING, "NO GENERAL PLAN AMENDMENTS UNLESS IT SERVES THE BEST INTEREST OF THE PEOPLE!"
Serve your own interests! VOTE FOR MIKE ZINKIN & ONLY MATT RABB.
