Tucson Ward 3 Shocker: DeCamp Wins!

Posted By on Wed, Nov 4, 2009 at 8:46 PM

Well, in KidsVoting, anyway.

We've got the results in on KidsVoting in the Tucson City Election.

In Ward 3, Green Party candidate Mary DeCamp captured 35.56 percent of the vote among the 855 school children who cast a ballot in the race. We said back in our endorsement package that Mary was way ahead of her time.

Republican Ben Buehler-Garcia, who came in second with 34.04 percent of the vote, might have pulled ahead of DeCamp, if it hadn't been for the spoiler in the race, Democrat Karin Uhlich, who came in third with 30.41 percent.

In Ward 6, Democratic incumbent Nina Trasoff fared much better than she did in real life, winning 59 percent of the the vote compared to Republican Steve Kozachik's 41 percent.

In Ward 5, Republican Shaun McClusky captured 54 percent of the vote against Democrat Richard Fimbres' 46 percent. Guess those kids believed those wild tales Shaun told them about the bad man who stole the piggy bank.
