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.

One in four San Antonio households do not have access to the internet.

Low-income and rural communities are more prone to suffer from the "digital divide" — a disparity in access to technology and the internet — which exacerbates economic, social and political imbalances.
