Top of the Town voters pick Dunbar as ‘best mayoral candidate’

Second voting round for 2021 Top of the Town launches tomorrow


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 Voting will remain open through Tuesday, Oct. 26. The final winners will be announced on Nov. 10.

You're right, there is no good candidate this year, but don't elect Dunbar. She'll ruin the police dept. & be as good for Lansing as sleepy Joe was for the country. She's worse with her finances than Schor. Do we really need a mayor with a ring in her nose to be led around by the commies? Lansing needs to wake up. Everybody HAD to get rid of the orange man & look what happened to the country. Don't make the same mistake again. I'd rather have no one be mayor than Dunbar. Would we be better off without JB?
