Ballots for the Tucson city election go out October 10th. This year, voters will have a chance to make their selections for a new mayor and members of the city council.

This week, The Buzz invited the three mayoral candidates to take part in a joint conversation about the future of Tucson. Democrat Regina Romero, Green candidate Mike Cease and independent candidate Ed Ackerley shared their thoughts on the future of the Tucson's economy, roads and climate change.

AZPM News sent out a survey to all the candidates in this fall's election. Read the candidates responses in our 2019 candidate guide.
