Ward 6 City Council Seat Vacancy Final Applicants Announced

We received the information below from the Alvernon/Grant Initiative.


The Tucson Mayor and Council ranked their top four (4) applicants for the Ward 6 Council seat vacancy caused by the resignation of Council Member Steve Kozachik.

The highest ranked qualified applicants are:

1. Karin Uhlich

2. Ted Prezelski

3. Vince Rabago

4. Pamela Powers

The applicants have been invited to make a presentation during a Special Mayor and Council Meeting, on May 6, 2024, at or after 5:30 PM. The Mayor and Council may adopt an ordinance to appoint one of the individuals to serve the remainder of the term as the Ward 6 Council Member. Many of you may have received an email from a neighborhood advocate, asking you to support a specific candidate. It is not too late:

Even if you have voiced your opinion previously, TODAY is a good time to do so again. Mayor and Council are meeting tonight and may make a final decision as soon as this evening.

You need to submit an email today if there is a candidate you want to support or if you want to express your opinion about what skill set, experience, background, etc. the candidate should have to replace Steve Kozachik. EIGHTEEN months is a long time to serve as our representative on the City Council. We need someone as responsive, actively engaged, knowledgeable about budgets and City operations, and unafraid to ask the hard questions as Steve was.
