Candidates vying to be Phoenix's next mayor
Citizens for Phoenix, a coalition of neighborhood leaders, is sponsoring a mayoral debate on May 3 at the Phoenix Theatre, 100 E. McDowell Road. It is expected to be the first debate with all five mayoral candidates in attendance.

Thane Eichenauer, Phoenix lobbyist Wes Gullett, Councilman Claude Mattox, former Councilwoman Peggy Neely, and former Councilman Greg Stanton are vying for the mayor's seat in the August 30 election.

Doors open at 6 p.m., and KTVK's Frank Camacho, host of "Politics Unplugged," will moderate the 90-minute debate that begins at 7 p.m.

Citizens for Phoenix was founded in February 2010 by neighborhood leaders Paul Barnes and Ann Malone, and represents 60 neighborhood associations, churches, and civic organizations throughout Phoenix.

If you happen to attend this lying sack of shit debate, make sure you keep your hand on your wallet at all times.

Walter, that seems a really odd comment. I am planning to attend the debate, simply hoping to hear what some of the candidates really know about city issues. Since I have a fairly decent background in municipal and county government I have a good idea of the difference of fact and fiction. For instance, when someone asks pearce a question that requires statistics, we know he is going to just make up numbers that will be greatly exaggerated and mostly fictional.

I am expecting some guessing and exaggeration to occur and that will help me make an early decision on who I think the top candidates for mayor should be.

I won't be taking my wallet. Since I'm just an old white guy I doubt anyone will be asking me for my papers.

Your concerns are noted.
