Both of the candidates running in the November 8, 2022, general election for Mesa City Council, Arizona, District 4 — incumbent Jenn Duff and Trista Guzman Glover — completed Ballotpedia’s Candidate Connection survey. These survey responses allow voters to hear directly from candidates about what motivates them to run for office.
The Mesa City Council is the city’s primary legislative body. It is responsible for approving and adopting the city budget, levying taxes, and making or amending city laws, policies, and ordinances. The city council is made up of seven members, including the mayor. While the mayor is elected at large, the other six members are elected by the city’s six districts.
Here are excerpts from candidates’ responses to the question: What are the main points you want voters to remember about your goals for your time in office?
