Glendale Mayor Jerry Weiers, Vice Mayor Joyce Clark and Councilmen Ian Hugh and Ray Malnar publicly launched their 2020 reelection campaigns August 15 during a special reception hosted by the Glendale Chamber of Commerce at Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar.
The incumbents collectively chose this occasion to literally “throw their hat in the ring” before more than 100 select chamber members, local business owners and operators and Councilmen Bart Turner and Jamie Aldama.
Weiers is seeking his third consecutive term as mayor of Glendale, while Clark will pursue her sixth term of service in the Yucca District. Hugh will seek his third consecutive term representing the Cactus District, with Malnar running for his second four-year term in the Sahuaro District.
This is the second election cycle for the foursome to run on the same ticket. All four candidates are considered friends of the chamber.
While there are no official challengers identified at this point in time, campaign packets are now available through the Glendale City Clerk’s Office. To schedule an appointment and obtain a campaign packet, call 623-930-2252 and select option 1.
The primary election for mayor, as well as the Cactus, Sahuaro and Yucca council seats is Tuesday, August 4, 2020. The general election is set for Tuesday, November 3, 2020, if necessary. Any candidate who receives more than 50% plus one vote in the primary election will be declared the winner.
