San Antonio Voters Elect New Mayor and Six New Council Members

The June 10th runoff results for San Antonio mayor and six council seats are in, and the city will soon welcome its new mayor and six new council members to office. In an unusual turn of events, the runoff elections saw increased voter turnout from the general elections. Just over 13 percent of the city’s registered voters turned out for the election, a slight increase from the 11 percent that turned out for the general election.
Although Ivy Taylor garnered the most votes in the May general election, she was unable to pull a win in the runoffs.  Ron Nirenberg won 55 percent of the vote to Taylor’s 45 percent ending Taylor’s 3 year tenure as mayor.
Four of the city council seats were decided in the primary, leaving six council seats  (Districts 1, 2, 6, 8, 9, and 10) up for grabs at the runoff election. District seats 3, 4, 5, and 7 were decided in the general election.  The final results are as follows:
District 1
Michael Montaño     48%
Roberto Treviño    52%

District 2
William “Cruz” Shaw  56%
Alan E. Warrick             44%

District 3
Rebecca Viagran    62%

District 4
