For the second time in the 2017 elections–an incumbent San Antonio City Councilman has been defeated by a challenger.
“We worked hard since December.. block walking, making phone calls… talking to people” William “Cruz” Shaw told KTSA News.
With nearly all of the ballots counted, Shaw held ab almost one-thousand vote lead over Warrick.
Shaw insisted Warrick’s recent personal troubles were not a highlight of his Campaign’s efforts.
“We didn’t have any of those conversations while we were block walking with individuals–we talked about the issues of District 2” Shaw said.
Warrick was surrounded by controversy after surveillance video showed him sleeping on a bench outside of City Hall two weeks ago, insisting at first that someone had slipped something in to a drink of his at a local bar.
Warrick quickly backed away from that claim.
“We tried to stay focused on what we’re going to do” Shaw said.
Incumbent District 7 Councilman Cris Medina was defeated by Challenger Ana Sandoval in the General Election last month.
