Did Satish Hiremath, Oro Valley mayor candidate, cut a deal with KC Carter, defeated Oro Valley Town Council member, for KC to handle the "daytime stuff" if Satish is elected Mayor?
Satish kind off sloughed off what KC Carter said when asked about this on Emil Franzi's show. Somebody is not being truthful---and it's either a sitting council member or a "wannabe" mayor.
"I’m gonna tell you something a little different. I’m gonna help that Dentist get elected. And I’m gonna be his aide. Don’t repeat that. In other words, I’m gonna come to your meetings. The Day. I’ll take his daytime stuff. He’s agreed to this; we get him in there."
KC made this statement prior to a scheduled Oro Valley Storm Water Commission Meeting of March 18, 2010. He made it while the members who were there were waiting for a quorum. The recording is part of Oro Valley's routine of recording meetings.

And now we know how Satish plans to juggle his full-time dentistry practice, his personal life and life as Mayor. As far as being Mayor, he simply plans to do the job part-time. Too bad the Mayor's job takes a lot of hours a day, Satish. Maybe you just shouldn't be Mayor.
So, if you've been wondering how Satish got all those endorsements, well, we believe that there may well be other deals.
Why does Paul Loomis, out-going defeated Mayor, endorse Satish? What deal did Satish cut with Loomis? Perhaps a deal to support him for Salette's vacant council seat?
Did Satish cut a deal with the fire fighters to support subverting the General Plan recommendation to evaluate if the town should have its own fire department?
Did Satish cut a deal with the Northern Pima County Chamber of Commerce to support to change the Oro Valley sign code to allow sign lights on 24/7?
Perhaps Satish cut a deal with the Kai's to support rezoning their property on 1st Avenue? Otherwise, why the Hiremath signs on this site?
Did Satish cut a deal with the OV Police Union to not have any of their jobs cut, should layoffs become necessary?
Did Satish make a deal with the Southern AZ Home Builders Assoc to lower the impact fees?
Did Satish make a deal with Jerene Watson, (our interim Town Manager) over breakfast a week or so ago to appoint her full time Town Manager?
We don't know the nature of all of the deals Satish may have cut, but we do know that according to Carter's own words, Satish cut at least one deal; and that deal, the "KC Carter: Daytime Mayor" deal, is bad for Oro Valley.
Certainly, the voters of Oro Valley want to elect someone who is actually planning to devote the time to the job; someone who steps into the job with an open mind and "clean hands."
Mike Zinkin doesn't cut deals. "What you see is what you get." He plans to be your full-time Mayor. Mike is the candidate of the people.
Satish's "KC Carter: Daytime Mayor" deal is just one more reason to Vote Zinkin and only for Matthew Rabb.
