The Tucson City Council is made up of six members who serve four-year terms. Half of the council is up for election this year, and the others will be on the 2019 ballot. One of the seats up for grabs this year is held by Democrat Richard Fimbres, who doesn’t face a challenger. That leaves just two contested races in this election: Ward 3 and Ward 6.
Mail-in ballots went out this week, and the election will take place on Nov. 7.
The foundation raising money to build a memorial of the Jan. 8, 2011 shooting in Tucson announced this week that it’s making one final push to reach its fundraising goal before construction starts.
