Rematch Could Be In The Works For MC Races!

May 9 Could See Rematch of Mo. City’s Closest Council Race - If Reiter Decides To Run Again
February 23rd, 2009 | by Bob Dunn, FortBendNow

Rodney Griffin has filed to run for Missouri City Council in District A, possibly setting up a rematch in what was the city’s closest council race ever in 2007.

That year incumbent Councilwoman Eunice Reiter won in a nail-biter, when a recount gave her a three-vote edge over Griffin.

But this year the race could be very different, as Reiter hasn’t yet decided whether to seek another term.

“I’ve been very busy. It’s tax season now,” Reiter, an accountant, said on Monday. “The application is sitting on my desk.

Asked if she intended to fill it out and file for the race, she replied, “it’s not for sure…check with me the middle of next week.”

Reiter has served on City Council since 1994.

Businessman Griffin called for a recount after May 12, 2007, election results showed Reiter got 277 votes to Griffin’s 274. But nothing changed, as the recount showed the same number of votes for each candidate. . . (
