Stanton, Gullett to face off in mayoral debate

Phoenix mayoral candidates Greg Stanton and Wes Gullett will face off Tuesday night in a debate at the University of Arizona’s medical school campus in downtown Phoenix.

The two are in a run-off race to become Phoenix’s next mayor.

The election will be held on Nov. 8.

The debate will focus on downtown development and will be moderated by Kimber Lanning, director of a nonprofit group that represents locally owned businesses.

Stanton and Gullett were the top vote-getters out of a field of seven candidates.

No candidates captured a majority of votes in the Aug. 30 race, so a run-off election was called.

Stanton is a Democrat who used to serve on the Phoenix City Council.

Gullett is a Republican who works as a political consultant.
