Bisbee mayor and tax increases to be decided on Tuesday’s ballot

By Laura Swan
The Bisbee Observer
Bisbee voters will decide on a new mayor and possible transaction and bed tax increases at next week’s election.
Ronald Oertle and David Smith have campaigned for months, and next Tuesday voters will decide during the general election who will be Bisbee’s next mayor. Neither candidate received the 50 percent plus one vote required by city charter in the primary election in August to elect a mayor so both men have continued campaigning and will wait to see what the voters decided on Tuesday.
Also on the general election ballot are several propositions including Proposition 409 and 410.
