Who Do I Choose In the Tuesday, November 5, 2013 City of Houston Mayoral Race?
I have made it through the line, shown my Voter ID, my Voter registration card, and now I'm pulling back the curtain as I help Houston to select the 2014-2015 Mayor. The list of candidates is a long one, with all the candidates having different ideas of what should happen in Houston, and it is important to consider each of them when making the decision. Alphabetically the 9 candidates for Mayor of Houston this 2013 election cycle are Don Cook, Eric Dick, Keryl Burgess Douglas, Charyl L. Drab, Micheal J. Fitzsimmons, Ben Hall, Derek Jenkins, Victoria A. Lane, and Mayor Annise Parker.
Where does Ron Hale stand on the matter of selecting a leader who can advance Houston to a bright future of prosperity, and solve the City of Houston's issue's? I believe after watching the PBS debate, and attending the Houston Young Republicans debate forum I have made my selection. I have met every one of the Mayoral candidates this year, and whether it was a brief 3 minute talk or watching an entire debate ... I think I found our next leader.
At the Houston Young Republican debate, I go ask Eric Dick, Ben Hall and Annise Parker what this election means to them. Let me start with the incumbent Mayor Annise Parker who said "I am in the race, and this is the strongest Mayoral system, and it matters who is in the mayor's office ... if you do not have a good administrator then the wheel's come off." As to Ben Hall who said "It's about the future, not the past." Finally, I ask Erik Dick and his response was "Having a conservative in office will put the money into the issue and save tax payer dollars from misspending."
Now I have had a chance to talk with the other candidates also, but after reading some polls and finding out who the Houston people most wanted to hear from ... I only asked the aforementioned before my deadline. That is not to say that Cook, Douglas, Drab, Fitzsimmons, Jenkins, and Lane do not bring great leadership qualities to the table. They all have great ideas that we can only hope whomever wins for Mayor of Houston will look at these ideas as a sort of road map of the next 2 years.
Life brings us all together to learn from one another and to find a path of community outreach, to grow a society into a great city. Many of us have made up our minds, and may have been backing a candidate for months already because they're a family friend or a friend of a friend. Should that be your only factor when choosing the Mayor of Houston, the fourth largest city in the USA? Well I would hope that we all gather more information about ones skills and background in order to choose a great mayor.
This election is the most important election cycle in Houston because of the candidates, on one hand you have a 16 year vet. running for her last term as a City of Houston representative, if she wins. You also have Ben Hall running to bring the communities of Houston to the future from the past, You have Eric Dick bringing the Republican party out of the shadows of downtown Houston showing the community conservatives what to spend the money on without excess waste on unneeded projects, and 6 more candidates pushing the Mayoral candidates to talk about more community issues that Houston is currently facing. So, who do I choose as I put my finger next to a name to check on my ballot?
