City Council forum set for Tuesday night

  • Tucson City Hall

It might be a bit overshadowed by the Hillary Clinton-Bernie Sanders face-off and National League playoff games, but you just might find some fireworks tonight in Tucson. League of Women Voters events are usually as sedate as can be, but the Republican challengers in Tucson's City Council races are working to raise their profiles as early balloting has begun.

Bill Hunt, Kelly Lawton and Margaret Burkholder are running to unseat Democratic incumbents Regina Romero, Paul Cunningham and Shirley Scott (the GOP couldn't recruit a challenger for Democratic Mayor Jonathan Rothschild).

The candidates will take questions at a LWV forum Tuesday night at Temple Emanu-El, 225 N. Country Club Rd. The event begins at 6:30 p.m.
