Down to the Wire in the Mayor’s Race

By Pilar Arias and Don Morgan

The race for San Antonio mayor will be a fight to the finish.

Some say the top three contenders are Mayor Ivy Taylor, Ron Nirenberg and Manuel Medina.

550 KTSA caught up with Taylor and Medina at the National Day of Prayer ceremony at City Hall Thursday afternoon, where they both said their plans for Saturday.

“To the last second we’re going to knock on every door we can,” Medina said. He will then be at his campaign headquarters at 300 IH-10 Frontage Road, where he said everyone is welcome to celebrate with him and his team.

“I’ll probably be visiting a few different polling locations throughout the day and then on Saturday night going to be at the Wyndham Garden Inn on the River Walk,” Taylor said.

Meanwhile, he’s represented District 8 on City Council for 4 years and now Ron Nirenberg is hoping his vision for the future of San Antonio will get him into the Mayor’s office.

Nirenberg is one of the crowded field of candidates hoping to replace current Mayor Ivy Taylor.

He says that even though he’s worked with Taylor for several years, the two have some major differences.

“I have a bold vision for San Antonio, I know what I believe and I’m willing to take action to achieve the vision of San Antonio to be a great city.”

Nirenberg has campaigned on issues from the abundance of traffic to the lack of good paying jobs.

“I want to build a city you deserve. One that has a booming economy that has good paying jobs that benefit all San Antonians.”

The polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday.
