Only a few local municipal races are on May 1 ballots this year. And in one local contest, a candidate is outspending his two opponents by a wide margin in attempt to return to office.

Former Kemah Mayor Carl Joiner has spent about $8,884 in his bid to become mayor for a second time, according to campaign finance reports submitted last week to the city.

It would be interesting to see George P. take a run at Paxton. Bush the Younger hasn’t done a bang-up job at GLO but he would be better than the indicted felon we have as AG right now. Of course, about anybody would.

If Bush leaves GLO, I think Mayes Middleton should consider a run for Land Commissioner. He could be good in that job.

There must be a lot to gain by being Mayor of Tillman Town
