Transcript Brown for mayor! Lee Brown's campaign put out many signs along streets and walks. His supporters decorated Houston with propaganda that advertised his name to all passerby. And the race is on! Mayoral candidates Orlando Sanchez, Chris Bell and incumbent Lee Brown spar with verbal swords during the mayoral debate. After the first round of voting, Bell dropped out of the race, leavinj the playing field to Sanchez and Brown. 2001 Elections The 2001 Houston elections saw six mayoral candidates, many city council seats up for grabs and a few interesting propositions. The three major mayoral candidates were incumbent Lee P. Brown, and two city council members, Chris Bell and Orlando Sanchez. Interestingly enough, each candidate was of a different race, Brown being black, Bell being white and Sanchez Hispanic. Bell and Brown were the two liberal-to- moderate candidates, while Sanchez was a staunch conservative. After the Nov. 7 election results came in, only Brown and Sanchez were left on the playing field. The runoff occurred on Dec. 1. Brown won with 50.7 percent of the vote, Sanchez had 49.3 percent. If Sanchez had won, he would have been the first Hispanic mayor of Houston. Some politically charged propositions that came up were the votes for light rail and a proposition (Proposition 2) that would limit health benefits for the partners of city workers. Propositions 1 and 3 dealt with light rail. Proposition 1 called for voter approval of any future extensions of the line that's already been laid out. Proposition 3 called for a referendum to decide on whether or not the existing construction should be torn up. Proposition 1 passed. Proposition 2 applied to same-sex partners and common law marriage partners; however, the wording confused many voters. The voters did not know if voting for the proposition would allow benefits for partners, or if voting against would. Many misread the proposition and thought it was a vote against homosexual couples only. Regardless, it passed. - Crys Lewis "I want to commend Orlando for a tough campaign," Mayor Lee P. Brown said upon his reelection, "I know, like all of us, he loves Houston." 2001 Elections \25
