Michael Berry is making a big mistake jumping into the 2003 Houston mayoral race. Berry has no real constituency and very little experience in municipal government. He has no chance of winning if Sylvester Turner or Orlando Sanchez is in the race, and all indications are that they will be (and that will probably be bloody in its own right).
It's too bad. Berry seems sensible, and council could actually use some sensible members. I hope he reconsiders.
