For the first time in the campaign, seven candidates for Albuquerque city council sat together to discuss city issues. In a forum hosted by NAIOP, a real estate development group, the council hopefuls answered a series of questions, which they had seen in advance. Out of the four districts up for election this year, two have candidates running uncontested. In district two, council veteran Brad Winter is running against newcomer Israel Chavez. The two candidates seemed to be on the same page on the issue of reforming the city’s development ordinance, but had different thoughts when it came to the proposed Fair Work Week Act, aimed at requiring certain benefits for workers.
