Gilbert Town Hall

Three mayoral candidates are vying for Gilbert’s top elected position, each with different visions of the town’s progress and future.

Lynne King Smith, the founder of a ticketing software company and co-working space in Gilbert, has handily outraised her opponents. Both King Smith and Matt Nielsen, a charter school management executive, are first-time candidates. They face Brigette Peterson, who sat on the Town Council until she resigned to run for mayor in March.

If no mayoral candidate gets more than 50% of the vote in the Aug. 4 primary election, the two with the top votes will face off in the general election on Nov. 3. There also is one write-in candidate for mayor, Joshua Lipscomb.
