Bexar County

The race for the Precinct 4 Bexar County Commissioners Court seat is now narrowed down to two people:  Kirby Mayor Tim Wilson and KROV-FM General Manager Tommy Calvert.

Wilson held a small lead over Windcrest Mayor Alan Baxter with the early voting results and kept that narrow margin to the end, winning the Republican spot with just under 52 percent of the vote. Wilson said if he is elected during the mid-term election, his first move would be the elimination of projects like the streetcar system.

It was one year ago last weekend that torrential rains flooded much of Central and South San Antonio. The storms killed three, stranded dozens, left thousands without power and displaced more than two dozen families on the San Antonio River.

A year after the devastation, many of those residents have now moved away from the only home their families had known for more than 100 years.

Homeowners near the Espada Mission said they had never seen nine feet of water before, but the water rose within an hour, and 27 families lost everything.

Tommy Adkisson vacated the Precinct 4 Bexar County Commissioners Court seat to run for county judge. Adkisson has held the seat since 1998 and it will be filled by one of four contenders in the runoff; two from each party.

On the Republican ticket are a pair of mayors from two of the county’s cities: Alan Baxter, the mayor of Windcrest, and Tim Wilson, the mayor of Kirby.

Bexar County commissioners took time out of their business agenda Tuesday for a special remembrance of war casualties from the local community. The county honored the fallen soldiers with a video commemoration for Memorial Day.

Family members, wives and mothers joined local veterans in a video remembrance of the lives lost in Iraq and Afghanistan over the last two decades, something which Cheryl Lankford said she must do even if it’s hard.
