Good Morning HAIF Family. I've started discussion megathread on the upcoming 2023 Mayoral election for Houston Mayor in the race to succeed outgoing Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner (D), who's term limited from seeking a 3rd consecutive term. The obvious frontrunner is longtime State Senator John Whitmire (D-Houston), who's the brother-in-law of former Houston Mayor Kathy Whitmire (D), who held the office for 5 2-year terms from 1982 to 1992. Whitmire's pledges if elected: *Solve the homeless crisis. *Vastly improve Houston's tattered streets & dramatically improve flood control. *Uniting law enforcement & citizens against rampant crime. *Negotiating fair deal with HFD firefighters. *Repairing Houston's dysfunctional & chaotic relationship with state leaders in Austin. Any thoughts on the upcoming 2023 Mayoral election & I've got some questions: 1.) Will this go into a runoff ? 2.) Do you think any of the GOPers (Kubosh or Knox) will jump in ? 3.) Does Whitmire win outright to avoid a runoff ?
