So, Secret Ballot Pat Straney is running for mayor.  Folks have a choice between a mayor that balanced the town’s budget, or a mayor who has demonstrated his preference for secret ballots on important votes. 

 As president of the developer-controlled Vistoso Community Association, Mr. Straney spoke in favor of retaining a vendor for the community at a cost almost $250,000 more than two other qualified vendors.  When it became apparent his preference may not prevail, he called for a secret ballot.  Apparently he thought he could swing votes if directors weren’t publicly accountable. Mr. Straney also consistently calls for executive sessions, which is politaspeak for secret meetings.  

Why would an HOA need secret meetings?  As mayor of Oro Valley is there reason to believe he would govern any differently?
