Candidate Lisa Austin releases study results


Lisa Austin's campaign releasing results of a surveying conducted by her campaign, named the "Grassroots Survey."

Jordan Lander, survey director, says, "What we found was 22 percent said yes they would vote for Lisa Austin on May 16th and 24 percent said no. That's actually pretty good, which would suggest Lisa would be in the lead because that's amongst six other candidates running against her. So 24 percent divided into those six."
