Query of the Week

What are the odds that a gay man will be elected Dallas mayor next year?

“I’m not sure. I think there’s the best odds, but I don’t know who the other candidates are. If there’s a lot of other candidates, it probably won’t bode well. That’s an ongoing guess right now.”

David Livingston
Attorney

“Slim to none. That’s just the way people are.”

Elizabeth Cormack
Disabled

“I doubt it will happen. I just don’t think there’s enough people that will vote for a gay mayor. In the past I’ve seen our gay population not come out very much to vote.”

Larry Carter
Sales

“I think it’s very likely. I think the running candidate is a good candidate for the position and the job. I think he’s got a good chance.”

Dave Richardson
Owner, TapeLenders

“I think, the way things are going right now, there’s a good 50 percent chance. There are so many gay people doing good stuff. Soon there will be one, and why not? That’s hot. I love it.”

Alfonso Izcander
Student/employee
