This is not the "Results of the Oro Valley" voter. If this was communicated prior to the election. I NEVER would have voted for this.

Oro Valley is controlled by developers and their interests. Oro Valley government and the developers have raped the once beautiful treasure that was the Sonoran Desert and ignored the history of the people, the Hohokam, who lived there. The Oro Valley puppet politicians have built tacky commerce upon the ground that holds the history of the West. They have continually ignored the wishes of the citizens--they've run the town's resources and finances in the ground for years. Abbott and her group are as ineffectual as the developers are strong. Denkworth can stay at home, but most of the intelligent female citizens of Oro Valley don't adhere to her 19th Century pop-psych bs. Find something else to do Denk. Oro Valley--do you have anything left there that represents what you moved to that Valley for--make a change recall all the puppets.

The big box card-carrying communist Chinese butt kissing corporation that is leading globalism, Wallers, is coming to Oro Valley! What's wrong with OV citizens that they can't fight this? Overthrow the developer-backed puppet regime that you have in Oro Valley local government and maybe you'll have something left of that beautiful area. The developers have told you one thing and did another for twenty years, Oro Valley. Your politicians from whatever side that they pretended to be on sold you out! Rise up, take action, recall the mayor and city council!

The citizens of Oro Valley were lied to! No one I have spoke to in OV wants a WALMART!!! And I mean NO ONE! We don't want that kind of shopping here. We also don't want check cashing businesses, or tire and auto stores every 10 feet, or strip clubs. Walmart is a disgusting business, an eyesore and a parasite to this community. They definitly don't need our tax dollars to help them build. Had we been told what that beautiful land was to be used for I GARAUNTEE IT WOULD NEVER HAVE PASSED!!!What a wasted view! Put this store's existence to a vote, and see the results. What are you afraid of? It would be overwhelmingly shot down.

I don't know about most of you but saving money is important to me and therefore I welcome Walmart. If this were a perfect world everybody would have good working wages and benefits here and around the world and thats what I wish too but lets get real and stop making Walmart the root of all evil.

It is intereresting that it was ok to rape the prisitine historical valley and build your house and your neighbors' but not for anyone else to follow suit. Perhaps you can afford to live in a more elitist country than this, I can't. I welcome economical shopping without having to drive across the country to get to it.

i dont understand why you are complaining so much about a wal mart destroying the beautiful land and such, when all the oro valley homes did that as well. Why should you be allowed to destroy habitats but wal mart cant? and you are wrong about "NO ONE" wanting a wal mart here because there are a lot of people that want it. there are no tire and auto stores every 10 feet you moron, nor are there strip clubs! its ORO VALLEY are you kidding me?
