The seven candidates running for three Scottsdale City Council seats in the Aug. 2 election discussed their positions on a variety of local issues during a 90-minute debate at the Scottsdale Methodist Church June 14.
Approximately 200 people turned out for the event sponsored by HonorHealth, SRP, the Scottsdale Area Chamber of Commerce. Scottsdale United Methodist Church and the Scottsdale Progress and the questions were a mix of ones requiring the candidates to provide detail on their positions on seven major issues while others sought only very brief responses.
Among the latter was a question on whether they favored. Five candidates flatly rejected the idea while Barry Graham and Tim Stratton suggested the decision should be made by the voters. A video of the forum can be viewed at scottsdalechamber.com.
