Mayoral Campaign Under Way in Richardson


On Nov. 6, voters in Richardson approved a measure that will make it possible for us to directly elect our mayor for the first time. (The members of the City Council have always decided amongst themselves who should be mayor.) Exactly two weeks after Election Day, the flyer you see here arrived in my mailbox.

I wanted to offer this up as a news tip to my former colleagues at The Dallas Morning News, but I’m not sure the paper with more reporters and more reporting still covers Richardson. The most recent post on its Richardson blog is three months old, and that one appeared six months to the day after the prior one.
