Sustainable Tucson is hosting a City Council Candidates Forum on “Building Our Sustainable Future – Together".

Changemaker High School
1300 S Belvedere Ave, Tucson, AZ

Candidates from the three City wards with elections have been invited. Six candidates are confirmed:

Paul Durham (D)
Tom Tronsdale (D)
Gary Watson (I)

Ward 6
Mike Cease (G)
Steve Kozachik (D)

What things are likely to affect Tucson's options in the future? CAP shortages? Federal funding cutbacks? Local climate change impacts?

At the August 9 Forum, the candidates will discuss their views on the City’s role in four areas:

-Assuring renewable water that serves Tucson’s priorities
-Climate-ready and affordable transportation
-Relocalization and economic redevelopment
-Making sustainability our way of life.

Candidates will be asked to discuss how they see the challenges that the City faces in these areas, and what role the City government has in helping to prepare Tucson for them.

Current co-sponsors are: Local First Arizona, Pima County Food Alliance, Progressive Democrats of Arizona, Community Water Coalition, and Changemaker High School.
