It’s between incumbent Alan Warrick and William “Cruz” Shaw for the city of San Antonio District 2 seat in next month’s election.
The two were supposed to go head to head in the 550 KTSA studio Tuesday but current councilman Warrick said a scheduling conflict prevented him from making it.
So, Shaw used his airtime to discuss public safety concerns in the district that takes up much of the east side.
“We need to go back to the original way of policing, which is community policing, but get people from the community more involved,” Shaw said. He added he’s not satisfied with the new shot spotter technology on the east side, which is supposed to help San Antonio police determine the exact location a gunshot was fired.
When asked what he believes are the three major issues facing District 2 right now, Shaw said connectivity, public safety/crime and economic development.
Warrick’s campaign website says he would like to enhance economic opportunities in the district, improve infrastructure and lower the unemployment rate.
