The chilly 50, yesterday, made the pool feel as if the water was heated. I suspect that will also be the case this morning.
Well. We have had part one of our election here in Fort Worth. Part two is on June 18.
I can not tell you how shocked I am that the Fort Worth Ruling Oligarchy's picks won.
Betsy Price got 43.3% of the vote. Jim Lane got 26.3%. Cathy Hirt trailed at 21.4%. While Dan Barrett trailed even further at 8.3%.
The number of registered voters voting was up from the 6% who voted to re-elect Fort Worth's current corrupt mayor, Mike Moncrief, with 70% of the vote.
This election a whopping 33,860 registered voters voted, out of a total of 326,623 registered Fort Worth voters.
I am really no good at all when it comes to math, but it appears to my rudimentary math skills that over 10% of Fort Worth's registered voters bothered to vote. A massive increase of 4% over the 6% who bothered to re-elect the aforementioned corrupt Mike Moncrief.
So, congratulations to Kay Granger's and the FWRO's pick for mayor, Betsy Price.
I guess I'll be voting for Jim Lane now. If I bother to vote. Which is sort of unlikely.
