Election results for three Tucson Wards, and propositions

PIMA COUNTY, AZ (Tucson News Now) - The race for three Tucson City Council seats did not produce any surprises.

In Ward 3, incumbent Karin Uhlich ended the night with 58 percent of the vote, topping challenger Ben Buehler-Garcia.

This race is a rematch from 2009 when Uhlich beat Buehler-Garcia by just 175 votes.

In Ward 5, Democrat incumbent Richard Fimbres holds his seat with 60 percent of the vote.  And in Ward 6 Steve Kozachik ran unopposed.

In Tuesday's Pima County Election voters did not support a budget increase for the Sunnyside Unified School District.  School officials have said if this override fails, more than 118 jobs and dozens of school programs will be cut.

The override has failed in previous elections

In Altar Valley the budget override there also did not pass.

The Catalina Foothills Unified School District voters approved a general maintenance and operations budget override of 10 percent and/or 3.3 percent.


In Tucson, a proposition to increase the city's spending limit, but not raise taxes or fees is passing with 62 percent of the vote.

It is the first time the city has asked for an increase since 1987.  Meanwhile Prop 402, the City's general plan is passing with nearly 66 percent of the vote.

The general plan is a blueprint for the city's direction over the next decade.
