District 8 Runoff: Pelaez VS Brehm

By Pilar Arias

The runoff for city of San Antonio District 8 seat is between Cynthia Brehm and Manny Pelaez.

“When you compare my resume to my opponent’s, it spans out that I bring experience and expertise,” Pelaez said. “We’ve heard that traffic and safety and infrastructure and planning are important to them (voters).”

The district encompasses much of the far northwest side, including the area surrounding the University of Texas at San Antonio. Current District 8 Councilman Ron Nirenberg is running against Ivy Taylor for mayor.

550 KTSA reached out to Brehm’s campaign several times for comment, but she never returned phone calls. Her campaign website says her focuses are ethics reformation, public safety, transportation and transparency.
