A candidate for Phoenix City Council admits to renting a house in Ahwatukee so he would be eligible to run in District 6. An opponent has taken him to court claiming he’s not a permanent resident and should not be on the ballot this November.
On July 7, Kevin Robinson filed nomination papers and petitions in order to be certified for the ballot. According to the Phoenix City Clerk’s website: “A candidate must be a qualified elector of the city of Phoenix. At the time of filing nomination papers and during the person’s tenure, the candidate must maintain permanent residence within the district from which the candidate is nominated.”
