Are Republican or Democratic mayors better at fixing potholes?
City officials throughout Arizona say the answer is neither, but Republicans in the state Legislature seem to disagree.
GOP lawmakers in the state House of Representatives voted Tuesday to give initial approval to House Bill 2201, which would make elections for mayor and city council partisan races.
The bill would require cities and towns to print a candidate’s party affiliation next to their name on the ballot, starting with the 2020 election cycle.
The rest don’t tell voters whether a candidate belongs to any political party.
