TUESDAY, Oct. 12 — Lansing’s mayoral election is still three weeks away, but local voters have already decided on the “best mayoral candidate” in Lansing. It’s Councilwoman Kathie Dunbar.
Tomorrow morning marks the launch of the second leg of this year’s Top of the Town contest presented by City Pulse and Fox 47 News. Finalists will be featured in this week’s print edition. And over the last two weeks, voters have been deciding which of the top contenders in several dozen categories deserve the title of “best” people, places and things across Greater Lansing.
Since there are only two candidates for mayor, that contest has ended. And with about 42% of the votes, Dunbar was declared the popular pick for “best Lansing mayoral candidate” this year.
Dunbar had 37 votes. Schor came in second place with 29 votes and 23 voters were undecided.
Other finalists from the first round — who advance to the second round of the contest — will appear in tomorrow’s print edition and at lansingcitypulse.com/TOTT2021. Voting will remain open through Tuesday, Oct. 26. The final winners will be announced on Nov. 10.
