2017 Mayoral Election

Joey Palacios / Texas Public Radio

Ron Nirenberg’s campaign headquarters was a one-time car lot on Broadway across from Maverick Park. This is where former mayors Phil Hardberger and Julian Castro also set up shop and forged paths to the mayor’s office – and now it was Nirenberg’s turn.

At 7PM Saturday when the early voting totals were posted online by the Bexar County Election’s Office it was clear that Nirenberg’s victory was almost a certainty. And as Election Day ballot results came in his margin grew, ending the night with 55 percent of the vote against Ivy Taylor’s 45 percent.

From Texas Standard:

Have you voted yet? We're looking at you Pasadena, and you, El Paso, and you, too, San Antonio. Tomorrow there are runoff elections in all three cities. And in each city, the top job in city government is at stake.

San Antonio's technology sector is a small but growing force in business and politics. On the issue of Saturday's election for Mayor, there isn't a uniform response.
