For the first time in more than a decade, Tucson’s Ward 1 City Council seat is up for grabs. Four Democrats are running to fill the seat left open by Regina Romero, who is running for mayor. Ward 1 encompasses the city’s west side.
They’ll face off in the August primary. The Buzz asked all of them similar questions to give voters the best look at who will represent them.

The winner of the August primary will move on to the November election. Sam Nagy is running as a Republican write-in candidate. If he gets 84 primary votes, he'll face the Democratic winner in November. Otherwise, the primary-winning Democrat will be uncontested in the general election.
In Tucson city elections, primaries are ward-only, but all voters can vote for representatives in all wards in the general election.
