On the other side you'll find four videos posted by KERA in which BJ Austin asks each of the Dallas mayoral candidates, more or less: Why you? The best part: No video last longer than two minutes.

I attended the mayoral candidate forum last week at the Phoenix Theater. I won't call it a debate because the forum was limited to answering questions presented to the candidates. A couple of them, Mattox and Neely, ...

Well, I heard absolutely nothing in these that makes me want to vote for any of them.

has anyone asked kunkle how he addresses the fact that the rank and file of dpd by and large do not support him? The officers that I know feel that it should be anyone but him. What does that say about his leadership style?

Really? Still just 3 comments here?

I would've expected an all out brawl...ok, I'll start!

Rawlings says for Dallas to be "WORLD CLASS (jazzhands!)" it must be the best place in the world to do business. Really? New York City is world class. Is that because its the best place to do business or because its a fun place with lots of really interesting things and people really REALLY want to be there. Does a place have to be good for business for all the other fun stuff to happen? Methinks not...

Its the people that make a place fun. We have interesting people opening up interesting bars and restaurants...promoting interesting and innovative arts fairs (Suite Art Fair, this weekend at the Belmont).

Corporations do not a world class city make.

Since more than 65% of Dallas' police officers live outside the city, that it does not matter who they think should be mayor.

Natinsky got the endorsement because promised not to use their pension funds to balance the city budget.

Kunkle did not get the endorsement because he told them (as Chief) how to do their jobs, and they did not like that.

Rawlings would agree to anything to get their support, but he waited too long.

A police association endorsement is good for PAC money going to the campaign, period.

Past the money thing, endorsements just represent more debts to be paid back when budget push comes to budget shove in a few months.

As I like to say, I leave all of my political opinions to Schutze, with whom I will be moderating a debate, matter of fact, in a few weeks. Stay tuned for further details.

The police didn't support him because they know he can't be trusted. He changed the way crime was reported to make himself look good. The police officers were against it, inspite of the fact that it would make them look good too. They were the ones who informed the public, yet I keep reading how he reduced crime. Wake up.

I will, thanks. Also, have you heard or seen anything online indicating on who the frontrunner is? I havent seen any public opinion polls or reaction yet.
