With the race for Mayor and six City Council districts still undecided, REALTORS® have a unique opportunity to have their voices heard at City Hall.The most prominent election is for Mayor where incumbent Ivy Taylor is challenged by sitting District 8 Councilman Ron Nirenberg. Mayor Taylor took 42 percent to Nirenberg’s 37 percent in the May 6 election, with another 15 percent going to Manuel Medina. The election will hinge on how Medina’s voters redistribute themselves. During her time as Mayor, Ivy Taylor has worked closely with SABOR to protect private property rights. As a result, SABOR supports Mayor Taylor for re-election.
Among the other six run-off elections in the City of San Antonio, four are for open council seats—Districts 6, 8, 9 and 10. The other two, Districts 1 and 2, feature challenged incumbents. To find out who SABOR supports in each of these races, click here.
