Ward 3 Primary Candidate Forum
August 5, 2017 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
The Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona, YWCA Southern Arizona, Living Streets Alliance and the Southwest Fair Housing Council invite you to meet the Ward 3 Democratic Primary candidates on Saturday, August 5th from 10:30am to 12:00pm at the Donna R. Liggins Center, 2160 N. 6th Avenue, for the first-ever candidate forum to focus specifically on equity. All the primary candidates are confirmed to attend: Felicia Chew, Paul Durham and Tom Tronsdal. There is no primary on the Republican ticket.
The convergence of these sponsoring organizations will offer each of the three candidates a platform to present their perspectives and ideas for how they plan to address growing concerns that Tucson voters have regarding equity. The focus will be on: the impacts of access to healthy food, transportation investment, and rapid development and housing affordability on quality of life, racism, discrimination, access to economic opportunities, and balancing public safety with the need to protect vulnerable communities.
Why Ward 3?
With the retirement of Councilmember Karin Uhlich, Ward 3 voters have an opportunity to elect a new representative to City Hall and define the most urgent issues relevant to their lives.
Simultaneous Spanish and ASL interpretation will be provided. The Donna R. Liggins Center is ADA accessible. Childcare will be provided by City of Tucson Parks and Recreation staff onsite.
Space is limited to 150 people. Please RSVP here.
