Come Meet Your UA Candidates!

We are pleased to host Candidates’ Night on Thursday October 19th from 6-9pm at the UA Municipal Services Center, 3600 Tremont Road.

This gathering gives UA residents an opportunity to meet and question local community leaders and candidates for UA City Council and UA School Board.

This is a free event open to the public.

“With four UA City Council seats up for election and two UA School Board seats open, as well as other issues on the ballot, this proves to be an active and exciting election year.” says Thad Boggs, Leadership UA Board President. “We urge all UA residents to be informed about the candidates running for office and we are pleased to provide this opportunity for our residents to meet the candidates in person and ask important questions.”

Candidates running for office are:

UA School Board Candidates: Two candidates running for two open seats – Carol Mohr (Incumbent), and Scott McKenzie.

UA City Council Candidates: Eight candidates running for four open seats – Michaela Burris, Brian Close, Bob Foulk, Omar Ganoom, Kip Greenhill (Incumbent), Michelle Hoyle, Jim Lynch, and Lowell Toms.

The event is scheduled as follows:

Leadership UA has invited all candidates for City Council and School Board to participate in our open house. In addition, the UA School Bond/Levy committee will have representatives in attendance.

7 to 9 PM – A moderated question and answer forum with the local candidates will occur in the Council Chambers.
