South Tempe Candidate Forum

The South Tempe City Council Candidate Forum was a huge success!

5 of the 7 candidates running for 3 open positions on our city council were in attendance.

This was a GREAT opportunity for people to meet the candidates and to learn more about their qualifications. People had the opportunity to get to know the candidates and to ask questions of each of them.

Each of the candidates gave thoughtful answers to all of the questions and I feel like everyone in attendance was able to learn more about the election and the people running.

THANK YOU to all of the candidates, all who helped and all who attended. It was a great evening here in South Tempe!

A very special thank you to Vic Linoff for moderating! I was able to give Vic several questions relating to South Tempe and we then added questions from Vic and from the audience. I feel like we were able to cover a LOT of things that matter to OUR community.
