San Antonio City Council District 10 is one of the many runoffs that will be on the ballot for voters in June.
The list of candidates was narrowed down from 10 to two over the weekend, with Ezra Johnson and Clayton Perry remaining in the fight for the seat.
Both say their experience and background makes them the most qualified man for the job. They also each have goals in mind they’d like to address should they be elected into office.
“I’ve been here for 26 years and I know District 10,” Perry said.
Perry mentioned he’s dissatisfied with recent home evaluations to San Antonians and would put in a council consideration request to grant a homestead exemptions for neighborhoods.
Meanwhile, Johnson said he’s hitting the streets as quickly as possible and trying to talk to as many people as he can to get out to vote next month. He said he’d like to focus on the San Antonio Police Department recruiting should he be elected.
“If we don’t start doing everything we can to start bringing in qualified police officers and training qualified police officers starting now, we’re going to be behind the eight ball pretty quickly,” Johnson said.
