It’s election day in Phoenix: Here’s what you need to know before you vote

Vania Guevara

Voters will decide today who will represent west and south Phoenix, ending a year of uncertainty on the Phoenix City Council.

Both districts represent diverse, underserved communities that are hungry for a leader who will fight at City Hall to get a fair share of resources for the historically overlooked parts of the city.

The two candidates in west Phoenix’s District 5, Vania Guevara and Betty Guardado, are similar.

Both are progressive Latina woman who have been involved in city government but have never run for office. Guevara worked as a staffer in the District 5 council office for five years; Guardado has been involved in the local hotel workers union, Unite Here Local 11, for 21 years — most recently as the union’s director of organizing and vice president.
