SLATE OF CITY COUNCIL CANDIDATES FINALIZED
posted by Andrea Kelly
There's no shortage of decisions on this year's Tucson ballot. The open mayor's seat and three city council members are up for election. For the first time, the city elections will be conducted entirely by mail.
First off, there are three - yes, three - primaries in the race for the open mayor's seat. Marshall Home and Jonathan Rothschild will face off for the Democratic nomination. In the Green party, both Dave Croteau and Mary DeCamp are competing for the nomination. Republicans will choose between Ron Asta and Shaun McClusky. After the primary, independent candidate Pat Darcy will join the nominees from each party for the general election.
In the city council seats, each incumbent has a challenger:
West side ward one: Democrat Joe Flores is challenging incumbent Democrat Regina Romero
Northeast side ward two: incumbent Democrat Paul Cunningham faces Republican Jennifer Rawson
Southeast side ward four: incumbent Democrat Shirley Scott faces Republican Tyler Vogt
The city primary election is Aug. 30.
