Do you think Dallas has become progressive enough for voters to elect an openly gay mayor?
“I would say yes. It seems like more and more people are becoming liberal. I think the city is progressing along so it could happen.”
“I think so. A lot of gay people have already gotten elected. Lupe Valdez got elected sheriff, and she is openly gay.”
“I think anything is possible here in Dallas. Right now it comes down to the issues. That’s what I concentrate on. I don’t think about someone’s sexual
orientation when I’m voting.”
“Wow. I’d have to say not quite. The overall population has just not gotten there.”
“I’d like to see it happen. But in all honesty, I don’t think we’re quite there yet.”
Have a suggestion for a question you’d like us to ask?
