Rachel McAdam, a public school principal, surprised many League City residents when she almost won the Position 4 council spot in November, despite the fact that many local political observers didn’t know much about her.

I have had the misfortune of knowing Bowen for the past five years and during that period he has proven many times that he is a bully who will make up anything to try to turn people against someone and stir up trouble. After stating when he first announced his candidacy that he would behave as a nonpartisan, he has now reverted during this runoff election to his true colors by behaving as the mudslinging partisan that he really is. I have never met Rachel McAdam, but her professional approach to this election won my support. In my opinion, of the four original candidates, Bowen is the least desirable person to become a League City Council member. I urge League City voters to vote for Rachel McAdam during the runoff election on Dec. 15.

In Galveston, I got a call from the Republican Party in support of one of the mayoral candidates. I'm sorry to see party politics making its way into local elections.

I appreciate John Bowen's send me a campaign flyer in the mail. It helped me make up my mind....I'll be voting for Rachel....

I voted for McAdams in the general election. I figured if she could lead a school as principle, during these trying times that we live in now, then she would probably be a good fit on city council.

Maybe they voted for her because she's a woman, that's a lot more visible than her political affiliation and a lot more likely to be the answer. It has been touted as the election "year of the woman".

Where is the evidence for direct partisan support? I don't see any in Ms. McAdam's campaign finance reports. Quotes? Flyers? Internet URLs? Public endorsements from elected officials whose party affiliation was on the ballot? And don't tell me what you believe, show me what you can prove. By the way, the only party I'm interested in is the election night party thrown by either or both of the candidates.
