I guess the good thing is, the position is pretty much meaningless anyway.
This I agree with 100%. I liked Mike Villarreal but I think he is a tad inexperienced for the position.

I do not want a progressive, trying to social engineer the society.

I want the city to protect me, pick up my garbage and scarce few other things.

I do not want to provide free day care to a voting bloc nor affirmation of non discrimination where none existed.

The city government should LEAVE ME ALONE!!!

I think we need a progressive. Too much same ol' same ol' around here.

I can protect myself and my family well enough, do need the FD though.

I'd pay for private trash pick-up.

Don't care about free pre-k.

Taylor cannot split the hispanic vote, so I doubt she stands a real chance in this

They're both not great choices, but Taylor had her shot to show she can lead and she's failed at that.

Really bothers me how our police are coming out in support of VDP with their commercials against Taylor. Guess VDP made a deal with them to support their unsustainable contract demands, which means more potholes for everyone and makes annexation a sure thing to pay for it all. Tired of pyramid scheme politics! That the police publicly support anyone is offensive. Could you imagine our armed forces running ads in favor of a Presidential candidate? No, because for one it is illegal. Police shouldn't be able to do it either. This isn't Mexico...where the police routinely and openly campaign for candidates.

If you listened to the last debate you can tell LVP will cave and give in to the police union demand. Thank goodness we have that bull dog Sculley taking the lead on this.


But hey let's be simple voters and all only look at the NDO.

I'm worried that Van de Putte undoing Sculley's leverage on the public safety contracts would cause Sculley to leave, early in Van de Putte's term. That's really Sculley's signature issue at the moment. Sculley has made it clear that leaving the current benefits in place will cause financial ruin in the long term. Why would she stick around to preside over an impending financial mess? It will be crystal clear right out of the chute that she can't count on the new mayor to back her up.

Totally agree. If she coerces Sculley out and the police and fire Union prevails, we will be doomed to an unsustainable contract that will force the city to sacrifice other essential services to fulfill the commitment. Can't believe any mayoral candidate would want that as their legacy but I guess Van De Putte is shortsighted and willing to pander to the union.
