Your right Art it is a shopping channel. Some shopping for products and others shopping for a good candidate. For my money, Zinkin is the right product for what promise to be a very difficult time.

This Blog is starting to look like The Shopping Channel.

Main point---Vote Mike Zinkin For Mayor!

2010-02-09T10:16:25.587-07:00

I love the AAPL store. I just got a new iMac, my first mac and it is wonderful. I won't state which iMac I bought in deference to Mr. O. Starr.

Now if I could just get Win7 to run with boot camp, (apparently beyond my computer skills) I could kill Space Zombies gaming on the PC side.

Oh and I like the Prime Rib-eye at COSTCO just as much as the Prime cuts at AJs, so

2010-02-09T08:00:29.095-07:00

dear nombe-- while you are picking out your copper cookware, would you mind stopping by AJs and getting me some petrale sole and stop at the apple store and pick up a number for me so i do not have to wait in line so long the next time i visit the apple store

2010-02-08T18:26:49.207-07:00

Mr. Davis and Ms. Cowgirl are right, we need a mix of retail shopping and dining opportunities.

Mr. Starr is also correct, we need to focus on the candidates .... Pls support Mike Zinkin. If he wins, he will have a most difficult job and he will need assistance, support and advice.

Now, I have to get over to Williams Sonoma, I heard there was a sale on copper cookware....

2010-02-08T16:06:35.337-07:00

OinStarr,

You said that your budget doesn't even include Zales. That's OK. There was a time when my budget was exactly like yours and I shopped at lower priced stores. But you have Wal-Mart and the dollar store and Target to fit your budget. What stores are there in OV for those with a bigger budget? I agree with Chuck. OV should have a MIX of stores. Something for

2010-02-08T15:41:42.482-07:00

OinStarr, if you have read my commentaries on this site, then you should know I am absolutely independent from it; also, I have no affiliation with any other defined interest entity. I must iterate that I, too, as my opening statement reads, am very pro Mike Zinkin relative to my beliefs that he makes for the best choice for Mayor for the Town of Oro Valley. I am most certain that Mike will be

2010-02-08T14:58:05.130-07:00

OinStarr--- You keep saying "Mike will be beholden to me" in one form or another.

Will it make you feel any better if I offer this disclaimer here and now?

To Whom it may concern:

Please Vote For Mike Zinkin For Mayor. Mike will NOT be beholden to me. He will however be beholden to the people of Oro Valley.

Is that clear enough?

2010-02-08T14:32:15.242-07:00

The intent of my original post was to focus on a mayoral candidate and an attitude I observed. Shopping options has detracted from that. Artmarth's comments only solidifies why Mike may have a difficult time being his own person.

2010-02-08T13:29:06.063-07:00

Regarding shopping options-- we need a mix. Yes Wal-Mart, Best Buy and the cookie cutter stores, but we also need some upscale options-- check out the Apple Store at LaEncantada and you'd wonder if they are in a recession, can OV support an AJs-- I think so. Unfortunately, these outlets tend to stay away from shopping areas that contain the Wal-Mart types.

I for one think that a

2010-02-08T13:01:46.265-07:00

NW

My budget and I'm sure many other's doesn't even include Zales. What store at LaEncanta sells blue collar work clothes? Not everyone who lives in the OV has a budget for caviar. Some of us work at the establishments that you continually knock. We matter too.

2010-02-08T12:15:22.996-07:00

OINSTARR:

If only we had a LaEncanta here in the OV rather than the cookie cutter shops we must endure.

Think of the sales tax revenue we would be enjoying.
My motto for the next election is "More Tiffany, less Zales".

Don't even get me started about restaurant selection in the OV. - NW

2010-02-08T11:45:56.170-07:00

I heard that the Chamber of Commerce is endorsing Hiremath. Hmmm...I wonder why that is...

Could it be because he is a MEMBER of the CofC?

Could it be because he PAYS DUES to them every year? (Dues run anywhere from $210 to $1,020/year depending on the number of employees in your business.)

Could it be because their MISSION is to "serve, promote and protect

2010-02-08T11:40:29.267-07:00

OinStarr--- If by "towing" the line, you mean "toeing the line"---you are correct.

We expect candidates like Bill Garner & Salette Latas who, after getting elected, do not forget their commitment to the people who helped get them elected.

That is a simple credo. Do what is best for the vast majority of the people of Oro Valley. Nothing more! Nothing

2010-02-08T11:38:52.775-07:00

OinStarr,

Webster's Dictionary defines ELITE as:

The group or part of a group regarded as the finest, best, or most distinguished.

Thank you for the compliment.

2010-02-08T11:24:04.399-07:00

Ferlin,

I also collected sigs and sent money. I received a thank you card in the mail. I received another thank you e-mail. He also thanks me for my support whenever we talk on the phone. Not sure how you fell through the cracks.

2010-02-08T11:21:44.991-07:00

I must have met a different Mike Zinkin. His demeanor was a little distnat and his LaEncanta attitude didn't set well with my shop Oro Valley mentality and pocketbook. He follows suit with the elitist cheerleaders here. As a mayoral candidate, I would expect that Mike would promote Shop Oro Valley

2010-02-08T10:12:46.611-07:00

I agree that Mike is the right guy fir this time in our town's history. He is independent of the poor decisions made in the last couple of years and more importantly he is not beholdimng to anybody or any group. This is going to be a tough time to lead the community and the guy that created the mess (Loomis) is not the right guy to fix it. My business experience has taught me that you need to

2010-02-07T21:32:45.710-07:00

I have met with Mike, spoken with him, interviewed him, seen him in action, watched and heard the other two candidates.

Frankly, selecting Mike as the best candidate for Mayor is a no brainer.

Satish will not have enough time to serve as Mayor, given he has a business and a young family. He also has no clue as to the working so Oro Valley and has stated in public that he

Collected 60 sigs for his entering the race. Sent $.

Not a "kiss my ass" or anything. He is a high flyer.

2010-02-07T14:32:19.586-07:00

Ferlin,

I am one of Mike's supporters and I have not experienced a lack of appreciation for my support of his campaign as you describe.

If you've been to the candidate forums, you know that he stood out head and shoulders over his opponents. Loomis gave a lot of politician-speak non-answers and after years of telling us that business revenue meant that we would

2010-02-07T12:53:20.213-07:00

Mike Zinkin may be good BUT I find him a little lacking in his dealings with his supporters....

Gives you a smile and promises and no thanks for support.

I think we have a bunch of loosers and am really undecided.

2010-02-06T16:16:19.452-07:00

Wonderfully put! Mike is a true thinker, uncluttered by ego or special interest. He truly wants for the TOV to be not just a place but a community. He is smart, he is pliant, he has knowledge, he is a people person, AND he has balance; he is Mike.
