Ward 3 Councilmember Karin Uhlich

“Dear Tucsonans,
I’ve been asked quite often lately whether I’ll be running for re-election in 2017. I’ve been truthfully answering “I don’t know yet”, on some days “yes I think so”, and on other days “I’m thinking not”. This week I’ve decided that I will not seek re-election in 2017.
I felt it important to let you know and to allow for any folks who might consider running (including perhaps you!) plenty of time to summon courage and to clear 2017 calendars for campaigning.
I will fulfill my next eighteen months of service with sustained energy and focus. And I will keep you posted on our team’s work in Ward 3, across the community and at the Mayor and Council table.
Then, after twelve years in office, I’ll proudly step aside and support the incoming Council Member as she/he enters this fulfilling and privileged role serving the public. Thanks for your ongoing support and feedback during this final stretch for me and my staff!”
Sincerely,
Karin
