Former Dallas mayor Laura Miller contested Jennifer Staubach Gates for the Dallas City Council District 13 race, but Gates won by a nearly two-to-one margin. The Dallas Morning News used the headline “trounces.”

“Laura Miller’s time has passed,” reads the headline on political reporter Gromer Jeffers’ story. Interestingly enough, Mayor Mike Rawlings attended Gates’ election night watch party at her home.

“By beating Miller soundly, Gates has proved that it’s her, not the former mayor, who has the best sense of the district’s pulse,” Jeffers wrote.

The issues remain the same — PD15, Preston Center garage, development and traffic.
