Voters in Flagstaff’s city elections took part in a kind of political speed dating Thursday evening.
But instead of singles moving from table to table hoping to meet that special someone, politicians did. And voters got up-close and personal with the candidates who want to be a part of the city’s future.
At the forum hosted by Friends of Flagstaff’s Future, four mayoral candidates and five of the six city council candidates moved from table to table at Flagstaff High School.

He has been working 12 years to clean up the groundwater beneath this landfill near Tuba City, Ariz. Last month, the Hopi Tribe sued the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs over the landfill that the federal agency operated for nearly 50 years.
