Predictions? Easy - Richards by a mile.
Gantt has already pulled the race card and this thing just got started.
Whites vote and they dont like being called racist. There is also no love lost between Gantt and our growing Latino community. Frankly, it is an absolute wonder that Gantt has survived this long. He destroyed Wade Norwood's chances years ago and he has already torpedoed Lovely's. When you bring incompetent failure Cynthia Elliott to your announcement, you've said more than enough about where your priorities lie.
Lovely is as lovely as her name implies, and for better or worse, she's one of the more competent Council members, but she has minimal executive leadership qualities. The only vision she has exhibited is a desire to steer City contracts to minority-owned businesses, not necessarily minority workers, regardless of whether or not they're from Rochester. She makes a valid point about getting more out of developers and businesses that are subsidized by the City, but Richards has already been making that point. Her insinuation that Richards has ignored the neighborhoods is disingenuous at best. From the marina in Charlotte, to the FIS Areas, El Camino Trail, upcoming investments on La Avenida, Portland Ave, and Thurston Rd, to Brooks Landing, Collegetown, Erie Harbor, Culver Rd Armory, Eastman Business Park, and Susan B Anthony, Richards' administration has been doing good things all over our city. And besides, anyone who doesn't understand that we cannot have a strong city without a vibrant downtown should not claim to have vision.

Basically, this comes down to an unaccomplished lawyer / politician who feels entitled to be Mayor versus a highly successful lawyer with years of executive experience and private sector knowledge.
Is there anything more to discuss?
Yes, what the Hell is Lovely thinking???

Well said Matt. As much as I dislike Lt. Governor Doofus and his puppet, I dislike the racist misanthrope Gantt even more. He is bad news and I could never support or vote for anyone who he endorses. And Cynthia Elliott? Nobody with half a brain takes that FOOL seriously.

Cynthia Elliott should run for congress

She would be one of the more intelligent members of the Congressional Black Caucus.

Bwahawhawhaw.......maybe the smartest.

Here is the thing Blacks don't understand: Black politicians don't do much for blacks because they know they already will get their vote, Detroit is a prime example.

Basically, this comes down to is either voting for a fake democrat or a real democrat.

Why would some vote for a guy that lies about what he his?? If he lies about that, what else will he lie about???

I will take the fake democrat over anyone endorsed by David Gantt any day of the week.

This should be settled in a hot dog eating contest. I see there is a hot dog vendor across the street from City Hall.

OK so by your theory if a black politician doesn't get killed they weren't out to help blacks. Well I thank you for your honesty of agreeing that Obama, Sharpton, Jackson and Jr, and the many other circus clowns endorsed by 99% of the black community are not actually out to help blacks.

Just because Duffy used to be republican does not mean was not always liberal minded.His views have always aligned with the democrat ideology.If anything he was a fake republican.Besides you fail to realize democrats and republicans are both in bed with each other the y work for the same endgame.They only deal with different facets of the same plan creating the illusion of opposition.They are in fact two sides of the same piece of paper.

Yes it is they act like,do like,and sound like a democrat.Under your logic Glen beck would be a fake republican because he was once a democrat.
