Resident Seeks Council Help To Respond To Unfounded Allegation

Oro Valley resident Shirl Lamonna brought her "case" to council last Wednesday. Lamonna discussed Greater Oro Valley Chamber of Commerce President Dave Perry's remarks impugning Lamonna's motives for opposing a zoning change several years ago. See our posting last Wednesday.

Lamonna began her remarks, of which we have included a video (below), with the goal of "...taking advantage of the [council's] ability to respond to criticism." Lamonna then proceeded to discuss Perry's ill spoken remarks to council of March 4.

Lamonna's primary concern is that Perry's comment not only impugns the motives behind her strident efforts several years ago, but also violates the spirit, if not the letter, of the town's agreement with Greater Oro Valley Chamber of Commerce.

The town donates $30,000 annually to the chamber. That agreement states that the Greater Oro Valley Chamber of Commerce in any political activities in Oro Valley.
