Ballots tallied in Tucson’s election this week amounted to a historic victory for Regina Romero. As the city’s first Latina mayor, she will also preside over an all-Democratic City Council. Democrats won their races for City Council by wide margins. Voters also overwhelmingly rejected the so-called sanctuary city initiative and another measure that would have raised the mayor and council’s pay.
Arizona 360 took a deeper dive into the results with a roundtable that included Arizona Public Media news director Andrea Kelly, Tucson Local Media executive editor Jim Nintzel, Arizona Daily Star editorial page editor Sarah Garrecht Gassen and Tucson Sentinel editor Dylan Smith.
