Phoenix City Council Candidates Square Off In Runoff Election

November 01, 2013

Some Phoenix voters will go to the polls Tuesday to elect candidates in two city council runoff races. The candidates did not gather enough votes to make them winners in the election last August.

The contenders in District 8 in south Phoenix are Kate Gallego and Warren Stewart. Gallego works as a planner with Salt River Project and Stewart is a church pastor. 

The other runoff is in District 4 on the city’s west side. The candidates in that race are Justin Johnson, the son of former Phoenix Mayor Paul Johnson and Laura Pastor, daughter of Arizona Congressman Ed Pastor.  Johnson is a home builder and Pastor is a teacher. 

There will be 11 centers in Phoenix where voters can cast ballots from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday. Maricopa and other counties are also holding elections for school district funding on Tuesday. Polling places for the Maricopa county election will be at different locations than the Phoenix runoffs.
