Houston Realty Business Coalition Releases Poll on Mayor's Race
Bill King Leads Sylvester Turner by 5 percent
The Houston Realty Business Coalition (HRBC) released a poll of 300 active voters today measuring support of Mayoral candidates in the December runoff election.
"Bill King has built a broad base of support throughout the city of Houston," said Chairman Alan Hassenflu. "Bill King is the only candidate offering thoughtful solutions to the fiscal disaster facing the city of Houston. King's message of getting back to basics has earned him the support of our organization and is resonating with voters who are concerned with the current fiscal crisis facing city hall."
The survey shows voters across Houston are seeing past Sylvester Turner's negative campaign and looking towards Bill King to fix the city's financial mess. Only 9% of Houston voters say they have yet to decide who they will support in the upcoming election.
Founded in 1967, HRBC, comprised of top business leaders, has become Houston's Premier Business Coalition by supporting public policy, elected officials and candidates for elected office that promote its core values of limited government, capitalism and private property rights.
In the upcoming runoff election for Mayor, if you had to choose, would you be voting for Bill King or Sylvester Turner?
Bill King 48%
Sylvester Turner 43%
The Log Cabin Republicans of Houston are proud to announce that on Sunday it made its endorsements for the municipal election runoff races of the 2015 cycle. As with the initial endorsement process, the membership of the Log Cabin Republicans met personally with the candidates that sought its endorsements, and undertook a full and careful review of the core issues facing our city, including pension reform, TIRZ, economic development, fair and equal treatment under the law for all, infrastructure and transportation, and general issues of liberty and limited, accountable government. No single issue served as a litmus test and we pulled from the broad spectrum of views within our group to find consensus on the best candidates to lead our city for the next term. We extend our appreciation and respect to all candidates who sought our endorsement as we prepare to effectively support and campaign for our endorsed candidates whom we believe will offer Houston the most promising future possible. Beyond that, we look forward to working with all the leaders ultimately elected by the citizens of our great city to help solve and address challenges facing Houston, and which are of concern to all.
