Barbara Bass, left and Laura Corbett are vying for Tyler’s open mayoral seat after Joey Seeber vacates his seat. The three-term mayor must step down for term limitations, but leaves Tyler with a strong and growing economy that either Bass or Corbett is sure to build upon.

Early voting is already open. Be sure to vote by election day, May 10.

Dear Mayor Bass:

Please tell me it is not true that Tyler has requested $500,000 for new police officers from this “stimulus” bill. I read about this in this morning’s op ed piece in the Tyler paper. It is my humble but strong opinion that we Texans must stand on principle and resist taking one red cent from this bill. It is just a pork-filled socialist boondoggle which is going to begin to truly ruin our free country. If Tyler needs more police, then we should deal with it and raise funds at the local level. Please don’t allow the local governance to jump on the deficit spending bandwagon. It would be hypocritical to do so while criticizing (rightfully) such liberal, marxist ideologies. I think you are a fantastic mayor, and I am counting on you to lead our elected officials to do the right thing and say, “No thank you” to impending socialism. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,

Lisa Webb
