The "New Powers" of Killeen were disappointed with the results of the initial election. Only 2 of their supported candidates made it on to the council while, the 3rd, Michael Boyd tied with Incumbent Councilman Steve Harris. The supporters of Mr. Boyd, the Killeen Democrats, LULAC, NAACP, Fraternities and Activist 501's are sure to be doing everything in their imagination to ensure he wins this time. Mr. Harris, from what I have been reading, is initiating a ground game that includes "Door knocking" and personally meeting with citizens. Groups or organization backing him - "0". Mr. Harris has always operated independently of "organizations" evidenced by "black" organizations trying to get rid of him.

This election is pivotal to the structure and growth of our city. Why? In my humble opinion, it is the Citizens vs the Organizations. Who do you want to be in charge of our fair city, the citizens or, a group of organization?
