Transcript The Mayoral Election A Fresh Face in Office Lauritz Every two years our great city of Houston elects a mayor, but on Nov. 4, election day, there will be a difference. The most beloved mayor of this city, Mayor Bob Lanier won't be on the ballot. Mayor Lanier served as mayor the past six years and in return we prohibit him from seeking re-election to a fourth term because of term limits. So, there is going to be a new face in the driver's seat of the fourth largest city in the United States. But, you may ask who are the candidates, what are their qualifications, and are they going to be as successful as Mayor Lanier? "Bob Lanier will be missed. He did a lot for this city and was a great mayor. I don't know if anyone can replace him," says Keith Kikta, a computer engineer major. There were eight canadidates, but only two seem to be leading the way, because they benefited by being the best- funded and have stronger turnouts from their supporters. These two are Lee Brown and Robert Mosbacher Jr. Lee Brown who is making his first run for elected office, is a professor at Rice University. He formerly was President Clinton's drug czar and also police chief in Houston, Atlanta, and Portland, and police commisioner in New York. Robert Mosbacher Jr. is the son of former United States Commerce Secretary Robert Mosbacher, and the president of his family's oil and gas company. Mosbacher formerly ran for US. Senate in 1984 and Texas lieutenant governer in 1990 unsuccessfully. Mosbacher even stated that this may be his last run at an elective office, if he doesn't succeed in the mayor's race. The race turned out to be low-key compared with previous mayoral battles in the city's post. Mosbacher called Brown "a life-long bureaucrat," and Brown fought back and stated that Mosbacher has no track on local issues. All candidates had little differences and seemed to agree on a lot such as affirmitive action. So, it came down to election day. When all the precinets were counted, the final results showed that Brown recieved 40 percent and Mosbacher followed with 29 percent. Former city controller George Greanias ran third, followed by five others including city council members Gracie Saenz and Helen Huey. Since no mayoral candidate recieved a majority or 50 percent or more a run-off would be neccessary. Bob Lanier set the run-off between Brown and Mosbacher for the first week of December. The run-off was close all the way to the wire, but Brown came away the winner. "Bob Lanier will be missed. He did alot for this city and was a great mayor. I don*t know if anyone can replace him*" Keith Kihta 108 December
