Bill Spence and Bobbi Buchli will be on the Gilbert Town Council ballot in November.
Bobbi Buchli and Bill Spence are vying for the final open seat on the Gilbert Town Council in a runoff election on Nov. 8.
Gilbert voters settled most of the council races in August, giving outright wins to Yung Koprowski, Chuck Bongiovanni and Jim Torgeson.
Spence finished 628 votes head of Buchli in the primary election, but short of the threshold for an outright win. Now the two will square off in the general election.
Spence is a retired Naval lieutenant commander and nuclear engineering officer and Buchli is a real estate broker.
Gilbert voters must be registered to vote by Oct. 11 to participate in the Nov. 8 election. Residents can register or check their status at the Maricopa County Election Department’s website.
Early ballots will be mailed starting Oct. 12 for those who choose to vote by mail. Early voters should return their ballot in the mail by Nov. 1 or place it in a ballot drop-off location or voting location by 7 p.m. Nov. 8.
The Arizona Republic asked candidates about key local issues ahead of the August election. The two runoff candidates responded to another round of questions.
Some responses were edited to meet the 150 word limit.
