Town Council candidates last week gave their views on issues such as a proposed town-operated ambulance service, how the town can economically recover from the pandemic and police reform during what likely is the only candidate forum before the Aug. 4 election.
The virtual forum was hosted by Unite for Education, a political action committee that advocates for schools in Gilbert and east Mesa. Mayoral candidate Matt Nielsen and Laurin Hendrix, one of two candidates for a two-year term on council, could not attend, the group said.
The mayor, one two-year term on council and two four-year council seats are on the ballot.
