DR. GOWEN ANNOUNCES AGAINST GARZA, WE NOW HAVE TWO GOOD ELECTIONS GOING

"Gowen believes that by working together toward common goals and redirecting expenditures to the highest priorities, the city can overcome challenges and create good jobs, fix streets and drainage, and improve the health of the community.

"I will strive for more cooperation and collaboration among our institutions, especially every local health care institution," she further said."

As a woman she will win a large portion of the female vote. When you combine this with the anti-Garza vote she gets close to a clear win. What I really like is she is educated and can bring to the table an issue which will leave Garza clueless - healthcare. Oh, did I say she is educated. I want to see them together at a candidate forum. It should be cool, real cool.

I love ideas, I really love her honesty in stating resources must be redirected, as opposed to promising the world with no way to pay for it.

"Gowen believes that by working together toward common goals and redirecting expenditures to the highest priorities, the city can overcome challenges and create good jobs, fix streets and drainage."

This is good. I hope there isn't some garbage out there which causes me to change my mind about this race.

A word to people who indicated they may run and who have decided not to run. Thanks for even considering the idea. I think it takes a lot more courage to not run once you realize you may not be able to win because of a lack of resouces, than to run for the sake of running and enhancing your own ego.

So now we have two good races. Who is up to challenge Cisneros?

Do you really not know that Leo Garza IS NOT running for re election and Carlos Ayala has been put up to run for that spot? Do you really not know that Melissa Zamora has announced to run against Cisneros? Really?

I have rejected three posts under this piece.

I will not allow the BV to be a place for slinging mud, especially when it is unsubstantiated.

That takes care of two of the posts.

I do my best to deal in primary sources. Until a commission states he is not running and said announcement is in a credible source - I am not going with it. I posted the original comment because it comes from a source filled with anger. I get e-mails when I allow for these posts. Tthey typically go like - "are you a fraid of these psychos?" my point is many of my regulars are entertained by them - so I publish them through.

As to candidates who stated they may run, but who have not formally announced in a credible source - I am not going to discuss their alleged run.

I have this theory - people who are going to run and who have been cleared to run - are going to announce - since they haven't my theory is they have chosen not to run, or are waiting until Monday to announce.
