Advocate video: Rawlings, Kunkle answer questions from readers

To close out the video debate series between mayoral candidates Mike Rawlings and David Kunkle, the discussion turns to less political questions the Advocate received from readers.

Neighbors wanted to know, “What are your three favorite Dallas restaurants?” Mexican food tops their lists, and the candidates actually agree on one of them. Another reader asks how to get on the “do not call” list for candidates’ robocalls. Sorry, man. If you vote, you’re on the list. And finally, we hear from the candidates about what they plan to do if they don’t get elected. Kunkle wants to become involved in local nonprofits while Rawlings will go on running businesses and making investments.

There you have it. A hefty discussion of several issues surrounding this race and responses straight from the candidates. The hope is that this has shed a bit more light on what distinguishes the two.

Early voting runs today through June 14, and Election Day is June 18. You can still vote in the June 18 runoff even if you did not vote in the May 14 election. Here’s a list of early voting locations.
