A victory by Cynthia Gary in the runoff race for Missouri City Council At-Large Position #2 would make Cynthia the first African American woman to represent Missouri City as an at-large councilwoman. However, a victory over the incumbent (Chris Preston) would not be the first time that she's had her name written in the history books in the "Show Me City". Back in 2007 Cynthia defeated (District B) incumbent Missouri City Councilman Don Smith in a landslide victory en route to becoming the first African American woman to hold a city council seat in the city’s fifty-year history.
Cynthia Gary made the runoff by finishing second behind Councilman Chris Preston back in the Saturday, May 7, 2016 General Election. Susan Soto was also in the race and finished third. Since, no candidate received a majority of the vote, Cynthia and councilman Preston must now face off in the Saturday, June 11, 2016 runoff election. IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Cynthia has been endorsed by Mayor Allen Owen (Mayor of Missouri City, Texas), Councilman Jerry Wyatt (the At-Large Position #1 Council Member), and Councilman Floyd Emery (the District D Council Member), and many other leaders.
