KLTV Talks To Mayoral Candidate Laura Corbett

Tuesday was the last day for early voting in the city of Tyler. And with three mayoral candidates, KLTV wants to make sure you get to hear from each of them. Tuesday, we spoke with Laura Corbett.

Laura Corbett is a graduate of Stephen F. Austin State University. She has lived in Tyler for 15 years. Before becoming a realtor with Re/Max, Laura was a hotel general manager. 

"I love this city, I think that we need experience in mayor's office. I think my six years serving on city council and my four years serving on the half-cent sales tax committee give me the experience that we need. We need to stay on track. We've reduced our taxes by 63 percent. We no longer have any general obligation debt, and we need to make sure we stay the course," Corbett says.

This weekend Corbett was endorsed by five city council members. She is running against Barbara Bass and Keith Pyron.
