Vying for three seats on the council are incumbent Suzanne Klapp, Virginia Korte, Eric Luoma, Guy Phillips, Joanne “Copper” Phillips and Chris Schaffner. The runoff election is Nov.6.

During Thursday’s forum, candidates fielded questions from Scottsdale Community Editor Chris Coppola and an audience of residents at Scottsdale’s Via Linda Senior Center.

One of the more divisive topics centered on the future of denser and taller buildings in Scottsdale.
