Two candidates are vying for the open Ward 3 seat on the Tucson City Council. Democrat Paul Durham is a retired attorney and prevailed in the August Democratic primary over Felicia Chew and Tom Tronsdal. He will face off with Independent (former Republican) Gary Watson, Captain of a Northwest fire station.  There is no Republican or Green Party candidate in this Ward 3 race.

hosted by Matthew Laos

“What Matters will be discussing the relevant Issues of the Day from the Economy to Entertainment to politics to education to the arts with great guests discussing “What Matters” and how it impacts our daily lives.”

Carolyn’s note:  Just found out about a new radio talk show hosted by young Democratic activist Matthew Laos. It’s on KVOI The Voice 1030 AM  on the dial, every Saturday from 5 to 6 p.m.

I just listened to Matt’s two previous shows (Aug. 27 and Sept. 3). He interviewed economists, educators, politicians (i. e. Ward 6 Councilman Steve Kovachik) and even former radio talk show host John C. Scott (former campaign manager for Pima County Attorney Barbara LaWall, who recently won her Dem primary on August 30, 2016).

Good luck to Matt on his new radio show.  Let us know “what matters” in Tucson and Southern Az.
