Manuel Medina Nearing Decision on Mayoral Run

It sounds like another well known name in San Antonio political circles may run for mayor.

“I believe we need a new mayor, a new direction, and I’m seriously looking at it,” Bexar County Democratic Party Chairman Manuel Medina told KTSA News. “There’s a real sense that there’s dysfunction at City Hall.”

He pointed to the police contract, “why did it take so long, and at the end of the day, we did not get what we wanted and they did,” he said.

He said he’ll make up his mind, to run or not, real soon.

“The sooner the better because the dysfunction at City Hall is a symptom of the special interests that run the city,” he said. “You can summarize it very simply: the candidates get their contributions, the special interests get their special favors, and the taxpayers get stuck with the bill.”

Mayor Ivy Taylor and Councilman Ron Nirenberg have already announced their intentions to run.
