Port Arthur voters have one last day to cast votes in the runoff election for the District 2 seat on the Port Arthur City Council. We encourage District 2 voters to take advantage of the early vote period to cast a ballot in favor of Tiffany Hamilton.
Hamilton garnered the most votes in a field of three on election day with 48 percent of the vote but fell a handful of votes short of breaking through the 50 percent barrier needed to win without a runoff.
In early voting in this runoff election, only 108 voters have gone to the polls to select the next Port Arthur city council person.That means every resident of District 2 who cares about moving Port Arthur into the future with new blood and new vitality instead of dropping back to the same old same old who have been on council before should make it to one of the early vote locations today, or without fail cast a ballot on election day Saturday.
We believe Hamilton is a rising star who will put the same energy in her role on the City Council that she puts into her role in the supply-distribution business she co-owns with her brother. Hamilton, 33, has an advanced degree in business administration and has lived in northern Virginia, Atlanta and New Orleans, but she has chosen to come home and build her business here.
During her campaigning she has heard loud and clear that the people of Port Arthur are tired of the negativity, and she will set a new tone on the city council. Hamilton is running against Cal Jones in the runoff election.
