So, early voting starts Monday. Who do you think is going to win the Mayor's race, and why?

I think there will be a runoff between McC and either Prater or R. Gonzales. There are too many candidates for anyone to get the margins required to win outright. And those 3 have the most recognition from what I can see.

I would say you are right about it being Chuck McClanahan and Vicky Prater or maybe Ralph Gonzales. Going on the residential endorsement signs (not business or vacant lot signs) McClanahan has the most, and I think R. Gonzales may be ahead of Prater. I know some of his signs are at the homes of legal residents, but who can not register to vote.

A run-off will end up being the more interesting part of the race. Getting people back to the polls is always an unknown. Some of the people voting may only be there for their council person or their mayor candidate and may not return to vote for another candidate.

Prater ran out of signs last I heard. I'm still waiting on one. And I agree, it will be interesting. As I said before, if people really want McC not to win the candidates who aren't in the run-off will have to campaign for whoever is in the run-off in the month leading up to it. I don't know McC or have anything against him. I'm just going by what is said on here. And I like Vicky. She's a pistol!

Chuck McClanahan (No Change, Business as Usual)

Vicky Prater (No Allies, Can't do everything alone)

Emmaline Gonzalez (No chance, poor track record)

Ralph Gonzales (Best Choice, If he can get people out to Vote!)

Chaston Roston Jr.(Should Just give up after Animal Control comment)

Both McClanahan and Emmaline Gonzalez are former members of the Corsicana City Council.(Poor Track records for both during their time with the City Council)

I disagree. I think, if we can get a couple of decent council persons voted in, Vicky will have plenty of support. As someone else said on here somewhere, the council elections are key to getting something accomplished around here. Mayor only gets one vote.

Decent council person- Ruby Williams is the only one I can think of.

I heard that she was, too! Now we need another one. That could be Dana Collins.

I think when the slamfest is over Andrews will appreciate being a council member and do what is best for the city. not that i would ever vote for him. I also think there will be a charge of CONSPERACY against the fantastic four Busted standrich sharpleg jackass and maybe alien too.. yes we have the documents but none are dated... duh... what else do I need to right buster or connie come on jacobs this aint easy for me to lie like this....

If Andrews will play ball then we'll have 4 if Dana wins. I call that insurance. And I agree, I think the four aforementioned will collectively shit their pants if the election comes out the way I would like to see it come out!

I will vote for Andrews! He has already shown to stand up and say the things needing to be said at city hall. He is not the status quo at city hall and ask lots of questions.

Connie Standridge is not the person to lead our city and does not lead by example. She has got to go! Maybe Winkler needs a city manager.

I am supporting Vicky Prater for Mayor! Cause she seems to call it, like she see's it. She comes across stern and all about business.

I like that! Allies can be brought around to her way of thinking in time.

Lets stop pretending people and vote the suckers OUT!! Tell everyone to VOTE!!

I think you are right. They are not voted in to be friends.I think it will be all business for a while now. that will mean CHANGE for the city of corsicana. and i think Andrews is good for his job hes just one i would not vote for. but no one else there to vote for either.
