On August 5, KUAT Channel 6′s reporters Andrea Kelly (formerly with the Arizona Daily Star) and Christopher Conover interviewed two Democratic write-in candidates for Mayor: David Karr and Joseph Maher Jr. Democrat Jonathan Rothschild’s name will appear on the primary ballot but he “did not attend; his staff said he had a scheduling conflict.” 3rd Democratic write-in candidate Rich Kessler has withdrawn from the race.
Rothschild was previously interviewed on KUAT in January (click here).
Karr is pictured below on the left, he is a retired Correctional sergeant and Maher (on the right) is an architect in Tucson.
All face off in the Democratic primary on August 30, so watch the interview (click here) and vote or write-in wisely.
Also running for Mayor are 2 Green candidates Dave Croteau & Mary DeCamp (who were previously interviewed on KUAT, click here), and two write-in Republican candidates Rick Grinnell and Daryl Peterson who are scheduled to be interviewed next Friday on KUAT at 6:30 p.m.
UPDATE: only Peterson was interviewed, to air on Friday August 19, as Grinnell was not able to attend the taping.
Vote-by-mail ballots will be mailed next week starting August 10. Absolute deadline to turn in these ballots is 7 p.m. on August 30, so mail them back early. There will be only 7 locations in the City to vote in person on August 30 (click here) from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
