This is a local election year with races for mayor and three council members as well as one or more financial questions involving the city tax rate. Incumbent Mayor Marlin Kuykendall and incumbent City Council members Chris Kuknyo and Charlie Arnold are not running for re-election. Candidates for mayor and council must turn in petitions no later than May 27.
The Chamber is planning a “SuperForum” for candidates that will take place Tuesday, July 21 at Yavapai College’s Performing Arts Center. Watch for more details on this event in future newsletters. The potential financial questions that will be on the ballot all involve sales tax changes.
