Posted By on Thu, Jun 4, 2009 at 2:28 PM

The Tucson City Council races are now all official: Yesterday was the formal deadline to file nominating papers.

Barring a legal challenge, here's what we've got, with handy links to their campaign sites:

In Ward 3, Democratic City Councilwoman Karin Uhlich will face Republican Ben Buehler-Garcia, a former flack for the Tucson Chamber of Commerce.

In Ward 5, Democratic Councilman Steve Leal is stepping down after 20 years on the council. Richard Fimbres, a member of the Pima Community College governing board and longtime community activist, is the only Democrat in the race. He'll the face the winner of the GOP primary between Shaun McCluskey and Judith Gomez, two political newcomers.

In Ward 6, Democratic Councilman Nina Trasoff has a challenge from Republican Steve Kozachik and Green Party candidate Dave Croteau.
