There have been a few City Council candidate forums to meet those citizens running for Ward 3, Ward 5 and Ward 6 for the Tucson City Council. The General election is on November 5, with two contested races and the Councilman in Ward 6 running unopposed. The rest of the Democratic Council and Mayor are up for election in 2015.
