From the March 8, 2011 Pima County Democratic Party newsletter:
Pima Dems Endorse Incumbent Council Members for Reelection
Pursuant to the Bylaws of the Pima County Democratic Party, the Executive Committee voted last night 36-0-1 to endorse Council Members Regina Romero, Paul Cunningham and Shirley Scott for reelection to the Tucson City Council. The bylaws state that the motion to endorse must carry by at least 75% of the voting members present.
The committee did not take this decision lightly but recognizes that this fall’s election will be a challenging one and that these three dedicated public servants deserve nothing less than our full support.
Councilmember Regino Romero in Ward 1 faces Democrat Joe Flores in the August 30 primary. Click here for an earlier blog about that race. Councilmembers Paul Cunningham (Ward 2) and Shirley Scott (Ward 4) are running unopposed in the primary (so far), with Scott facing a Republican Tyler Vogt in the General. Political newcomer Tyler Vogt is the older brother of LD 30 Rep. Ted Vogt.
Romero has been on the Council for one term, since December, 2007; Cunningham was appointed last May, 2010; Scott is running for her 5th four-year term.
