Mayor John Flowers has served two years in office, since the untimely death of Red McCombs, and polls indicate he should be reelected by a landslide this Fall.

“I love this town,” he said at Tuesday’s press conference. “Pinebox has been good to me, and I promise that I’ll always be good to it.”

Mayor Flowers’ only challenger is newcomer Bradley Ferrer, who recently took over the Texas State Raven’s Bank and Trust. “I know I’m facing an uphill battle, but this is my home now and I can make it better for everyone,” Ferrer responded to an email question by this reporter. “There are too many unanswered questions in our lives. Does anyone really think a bear killed Mayor McCombs?”

Sheriff Butch Anderson was quick to respond to the criticism of the bear theory, “Ferrer is an outsider and he just don’t understand our lives here. He wants to bring big city politics to our little piece of paradise. We don’t need that. Not in Pinebox.”

Ferrer’s office chose not to reply to Sheriff Anderson’s statement.

Mayor Flowers and Ferrer are in discussion to set up a public debate sometime in September. “I’m looking forward to the challenge,” Mayor Flowers said. “I’m sure the best man will be elected.”
