On July 10 Cave Creek voters got another chance to meet their candidates. Three more debates are scheduled, July 24 at 6pm at Cave Creek Town Hall, August 2 at Desert Foothills Library, and August 15 at Cave Creek Town Hall.
With the crowd overflowing the Desert Foothills Library’s remodeled lecture hall, Cave Creek mayoral and council candidates faced a series of questions from moderator Ken Strobeck, Executive Director of the League of AZ Cities & Towns. Event coordinator Bruce Arlen served as time keeper. Following is a summary of the candidates’ remarks and responses.
First up were the mayoral Candidates, current Mayor Ernie Bunch and current councilwoman Eileen Wright who were asked eight questions. The candidates took turns going first and the first speaker for each question was given a short rebuttal after the second candidate spoke. But first, each candidate was given an opportunity to make an opening statement.
