After the jump, the winners by default for the other six races and, most important, what will replace Richardson Idol in this spring's TV lineup.
First, a rundown of the Places and the candidates who have filed:
Place 1: Bob Townsend (incumbent)
Place 2: Mark Solomon (incumbent)
Place 3: Scott Dunn (incumbent)
Place 4: Kendal Hartley (incumbent Place 5)
Place 5: Paul Voelker
Place 6: Steve Mitchell (incumbent)
Mayor: Laura Maczka (incumbent Place 4), Amir Omar (incumbent Place 7)
Congratulations to all the candidates who volunteer to serve.
So, what will fill all that air time formerly filled by Richardson Idol? I'm thinking we'll pit the mayoral candidates in a Celebrity Deathmatch - Richardson Edition. "Laura versus Amir" could be the biggest draw since "Madonna versus Michael Jackson". Stay tuned.It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena.
