There will be lots of new faces at San Antonio’s city hall soon following this weekend’s runoff election.
Since May, San Antonio voters have chosen to replace six of the 10 faces that were on city council.
Among the victors were William “Cruz” Shaw for District 2, who said he didn’t use challenger Alan Warrick’s previously reported drunken night in downtown to his advantage.
“We didn’t have any of those conversations while we were block walking with individuals. We talked about the issues in District 2,” Shaw said.
Manny Pelaez defeated Cynthia Brehm, but told 550 KTSA that he plans to continue working with her.
“We need to address traffic. We need to make sure that San Antonio continues to be a safe place for people to live in,” Pelaez said.
Clayton Perry garnered more votes over Ezra Johnson for the District 10 seat.
“The number one priority is crime and we’re going to be working to get the number of policemen up,” Perry said.
All three will be sworn into office June 21, along with District 9’s John Courage, District 6’s Greg Brockhouse and mayor Ron Nirenberg.
