Despite a close election May 14, Sandy Greyson kept a commanding lead over Donna Starnes in the runoff Saturday, defeating the Tea Party newcomer to claim Greyson’s old city council seat.
Starnes had endorsements from third-place finisher William Tsao and Ron Natinsky, the current District 12 representative who lost his race for mayor.
At first, it seemed as though Greyson had failed to recapture her long-time support in Far North Dallas, but she told me that she believes many voters were too confident, assuming she would win. So, they didn’t go to the polls. She hit the campaign trail even harder leading up to the runoff.
Greyson previously served on the council from 1997 to 2005 when term limits forced her out. She has still remained active in civic leagues and neighborhood groups, working as the president of the League of Women Voters of Dallas and serving on the board of Save Open Space to help advocate for green space.
