From today's Corpus Christi Caller/Times:
CORPUS CHRISTI —Outlaw Josey Wales IV has filed for mayor in the November race for City Council.
Wales, who legally changed his name to the 1976 western film starring Clint Eastwood, runs a professional wrestling business in Corpus Christi. He has run twice for mayor in Houston, once in 1999 and again in 2007. He retired as a contract engineer from the oil and gas industry and settled in Corpus Christi about three years ago.
He is in the running against District 4 Councilwoman Chris Adler, at-large Councilwoman Nelda Martinez and local photographer Reynaldo "Ray" Madrigal. The election is Nov. 6.
The mayor serves a two-year term and is paid $9,000 annually.
Name: Josey Wales
Occupation: owner of Corpus Christi Wrestling Association and retired contract engineer from the oil and gas industry.
Reason for seeking election: Wales said if elected he will establish a strong mayor form of government and fire City Manager Ron Olson and his four assistants to save taxpayers money. He believes the city is not doing enough to attract tourism through conventions and sporting events, including competitive ballroom dancing and high school football playoffs.
