In August, Phoenix voters will decide on two issues that could fundamentally alter the landscape of the city.

One initiative could halt the city’s light-rail program. The other could cap spending until the city pays down its pension debt — potentially limiting city services. 

Both issues are inherently complicated and will require major education campaigns to convince voters to participate in the off-cycle election.

But with the election just weeks away, campaigns both for and against the propositions have been silent.  

The campaigns say they plan to pick up the pace in the final weeks before the Aug. 27 election.

Will they be able to win over voters in time?
