CORPUS CHRISTI, TX — The City of Corpus Christi's Runoff for mayor is Tuesday, December 15 and City Councilwoman At-Large, Paulette Guajardo is hitting the outreach as hard as she can.
Guajardo believes this is the most critical time for the City of Corpus Christi and spent her entire Monday calling, texting, emailing and knocking on doors to remind people that their voices need to be heard.
"We are focused 100% on outreach and reaching out to the voters and our momentum continues," said Guajardo.
Just like day one for the mayoral campaign, volunteers have gathered at the Guajardo household to strategize how best to reach the people of Corpus Christi.
She said she has spent the last 45 days working speaking to people face-to-face, "because I've seen it myself," said Guajardo, "people saying, I'm now voting for you because you just explained to me and I like what you said, running for mayor and what you will do for the city."
When asked why she is the best option for mayor in the city, Guajardo said it's time for change in Corpus Christi. The city has a billion dollar budget and needs more than part-time leadership.
"You will get different results when you have full time leadership."
Guajardo said she can bring full-time leadership from her experience as a small business owner and time on the city council. Showing she has what it takes to be the next mayor of Corpus Christi.
She said she does not quit and will continue to fight until 7 p.m. for the mayoral candidate seat.
Guajardo said she plans to be at the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Center and Veterans Memorial throughout the day for the Runoff Election Day.
