San Antonio City Hall is headed in a new direction.  Saturday night District 8 Councilmember Ron Nirenberg upset incumbent Mayor Ivy Taylor, after a runoff campaign that pitted Nirenberg’s promise of a more responsive, inclusive government against Taylor’s message that the city’s on strong footing with a new police contract, bond package and improved public safety.
