District 2 Runoff Pits Incumbent VS Political Newcomer

By Don Morgan

A political newcomer taking on an incumbent.

That’s the battle in the runoff race in San Antonio City Council District 2.

The incumbent is Councilman Alan Warrick–who wants the chance to finish the work he’s started.

“We’ve doubled the spending on infrastructure… we’ve picked up twice as many stray dogs… we’ve lowered the unemployment rate… we’ve lowered the poverty rate” Warrick told KTSA News.

“There’s a number of great things that we’ve done–but there’s still so much more to do” Warrick added.

The newcomer is William “Cruz” Shaw, who told KTSA News this is the first time he’s run for any kind of office.

“I’m a businessperson in the community, I live in the community” Shaw said.

“I understand what’s going on in this district and so I understand the needs… and I want to be that voice to make sure that we address those issues” Shaw added.

The runoff election day is June 10th.
