First, "lame duck" Carter turned on his fellow Council Members, Bill Garner, Barry Gillaspie and Salette Latas.
Next to get the wrath was his very good friend David Andrews, who Carter saw fit to remove from his position as our Town Manager.
Now, Carter comes after Mike Zinkin.
Is it any wonder Carter finished 6th out of seven candidates in his lame attempt to seek reelection to the Town Council?
All he does in his Explorer letter is repeat old "garbage." Carter is not smart enough to realize that Mike Zinkin will NOT lose votes by upholding the Town Codes and the General Plan. As a sitting council member, you would think Carter would understand that simple credo.
Here's his letter----if anyone cares.
Zinkin actions were delays for OV businesses
This letter is written by myself as a voter and a citizen of Oro Valley.
Mike Zinkin in his talks has put forth the image that he is for small business and will aid them in the work of getting plans approved, etc.
I have followed and attended the majority of the Development Review Board meetings. As chair of DRB, Mr. Zinkin needs to explain his votes on several issues that delayed the plans and work for construction. Examples include decisions on Arbys using Yokohama Rice bowl existing building, the shade of brown to be used on Wal-Mart stores, and whether palm trees planned for the In-And-Out Burger site could be used. All of these substantially delayed the project completions and contributed to the "hard to work with" perception that business people have had with Oro Valley.
Another item, which has amazed me, is his coming out with a major decision on the existing Kai land and by flyer putting out the message that he would do his best to control any use of the land other than what the local neighbors want.
It should also be noted that neither Mr. Zinkin nor Mr. Rabb were sufficiently interested in next year's budget to attend the April 24 Saturday budget study session. Mr. Hiremath, Waters and Hornat were all in attendance and contributed with questions.
And we understand that a complaint has been filed regarding Mr. Zinkin's unauthorized use of the town's seal in campaign literature that was mailed to town residents.
One thing that you learn at an early date is that there are seven voters on the council and four will do a majority and can vote in an item.
Looking forward to the up and coming election results and the outcome of the end results.
KC Carter, Oro Valley
