If a majority of property owners in Gold Canyon in unincorporated Pinal County petitioned to be annexed into the city, it would get a lukewarm reaction by some candidates for Apache Junction City Council and mayor who would have the final say.
Five Apache Junction residents have qualified to run for mayor and five others for three seats on City Council.
Running for mayor are Charles Austin, Robin Barker, Jeff Barlett, John Insalaco and Chip Wilson. Vying for council are Braden Biggs, Darryl Cross, Kelly Gremmel, Tess Nesser and Jeff Struble.
