SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) – “May the 4th be with you,” the voters and Star Wars fans.
San Antonio residents are electing a mayor and 10 city council members. Mayor Ron Nirenberg is being challenged by Councilman Greg Brockhouse and seven other candidates.
Seven other San Antonio City Council members are seeking reelection, while races in Districts 2, 4 and 6 will definitely have new representatives. Art Hall took over the District 2 seat when William Cruz Shaw stepped down to become a judge. When Hall interviewed for the job, he told city council he would not run for the office.
District 4 Councilman Rey Saldaña is being forced out by term limits, and Brockhouse chose to run for mayor instead of seeking reelection in District 6.
There are several other municipal elections on the May 4 ballot, including Balcones Heights, Castle Hills, Elmendorf, Helotes, Leon Valley, Shavano Park, Olmos Park, Universal City and Windcrest.
Alamo Heights ISD and several other area school board races also are on the ballot.
The polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 pm.
