Why I am voting for Karen Bass for mayor. Voters explain their choice for Mayors of the Year

It’s official, I am going to try for mayor of Houston. I’m still debating which way to go, and what I should talk about, but if I’m going to do anything, it’s about making sure we have a good city. We already have a very good city.
I’m not running for one of the positions on the Nov. 3 ballot; I am for Mayor of City Hall.
The last two mayors, Sylvester Turner and David Wilson, I can say I have the record of delivering good government services to the people of Houston.
What I’m not offering as mayor is running a one issue, one party government. If people want to complain about the taxes, or the way traffic is handled now, or how the school board is operated, or the way they are handling the homeless, I will not get involved.
I don’t want to be mayor, but if I have to deal with that issue, I will deal with it as best I can.
And I will do it as best I can, and as many times as I have to do it, because my job is to run the city government.
That’s what my job is, and that’s the problem we have in Houston. Because when it comes to governance, our city government is not about good government and running the city as well as you can. It’s about one party control, and one party rule.
And the last two mayors, Sylvester Turner and David Wilson, I can say I have the record of delivering good government services to the people of Houston.
In the case of Turner, I had never met him before he announced me as his running mate for mayor
