It wasn’t a very rowdy election cycle. There were numerous occasions in which the municipal candidates, 16 of them in all, had a chance to go toe-to-toe on the issues, but aside from a few criticisms thrown at Mayor Alfonso Ortiz, and one documented attack on councilor Tonita Gurule-Giron, I’d have to say it was all fairly mild.
The runoff races, however, may stir up a lot more passion. There are big differences between the remaining candidates.
First, take a look at Joey Herrera and Joe McCaffrey for Ward 3 council seat.
