In just a little more than three weeks, Houstonians will go to the polls to vote on a new mayor, the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance, and term limits for city council members – among other matters. But in what direction are voters leaning on these issues?

On this edition of Houston Matters, we examine voter attitudes as determined by the latest News 88.7, KHOU 11 News Election Poll. Rice University’s Bob Stein says there’s been some late shifts in who’s poised to make the mayoral runoff.

Plus: A recent report says – despite a downturn in other industries – Houston’s arts community is thriving and has a significant economic impact. We’ll take a closer look at Houston’s creative economy.

Also: Dr. Lori Teller answers your dog and cat-related pet care questions.

And we check in on the Astros’ American League Division Series against the Kansas City Royals – and all the week’s Houston sports news.
