Amarillo Globe News reports the story. Seems that some people love this guy while others don't hold him in such high regaurds.

Supporters filled an Amarillo City Hall chamber today to hear car dealer Paul Harpole open his campaign for mayor.

Harpole, 60, will run to succeed Mayor Debra McCartt, who said Tuesday she will not seek a fourth term.

“We’re in the black,” he said. “We need to stay there.”

Harpole owns Paul Harpole Motors and served on the Amarillo City Commission from 2005 to 2007.

He is vice chairman of the Center City Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone, which allocates property taxes dedicated to downtown revitalization, was recently inducted into the Boy Scouts of America National Hall of Leadership, and volunteers on a number of nonprofit boards. His background includes two tours of duty in Vietnam as a medevac helicopter crew chief.
