All but one seat was decided in the primary election, leaving Donna Wallace and Kevin Hartke to vie for the final spot on the Council. Most of the current Council members and city staff prefer Hartke for his commitment to Chandler, leadership and ability to bring people together. Wallace is endorsed by past mayors as well as Chandler police and fire. She can be a thorn in the side to the establishment — and that’s why we like her. Wallace is not afraid to ask tough questions and be a skeptic on anything from Council pay raises to the cost of the new Chandler City Hall building. A government agency needs that kind of voice to provide balance.
