City Hall Brawl ’13: City Council Lineups Set

Posted By on Thu, May 30, 2013 at 4:00 PM

The official deadline for getting into this year's Tucson City Council races passed yesterday with little fanfare, so we have the lineup for our City of Tucson elections this year.

Ward 3 Democratic incumbent Karin Uhlich will have a rematch against Republican Ben Buehler-Garcia, who lost narrowly to her four years ago, and Ward 5 Democratic incumbent Richard Fimbres will face a challenge from Republican newcomer Michael Polak. (We had some details about the candidates in The Skinny a few weeks back when they filed their paperwork.)

And (barring some kind of write-in campaign), Ward 6 Councilman Steve Kozachik chased off any challenges when he jumped from the Republican Party to the Democratic Party earlier this year.

With just two races, no primaries and no fringe billionaire candidates, it's shaping up to be one of the quietest election years in recent memory. (I looked into why municipal elections tend to be sleepy affairs four years ago.) Still, John Kromko and Co. are still out there gathering signatures for an initiative that would ban photo-radar enforcement of traffic laws, so we may have some fireworks there.
