Tucson City Ward Three Primary Candidates Felicia Chew, Paul Durham and Tom Tronsdal made commitments to 125 local residents at an overflow gathering at Literacy Connects on Thursday evening. The session was sponsored by Pima County Interfaith Civic Education Organization, Southern Arizona Interfaith and Literacy Connects. Candidates Chew and Tronsdal committed to increased funding for KidCo and JobPath, to keep low-income bus fares at their current level, and to protect the number of bus routes. All three candidates pledged to support keeping Tucson an Immigrant Welcoming city, to fight SPICE and other drugs in Ward 3, and to be accessible to the organizations if elected.
Attendees committed to vote, get others to vote, and walk the neighborhood. Two Neighbor to Neighbor Walk & Call sessions are scheduled for Saturday, August 12th at 9:00 am and Monday, August 14th at 6:00 pm. Walkers and callers will meet at Sacred Heart, 601 E. Ft. Lowell, on both days.
