State Rep. Mike Villarreal. D-San Antonio, has announced he will resign his Texas House position to run for mayor of San Antonio.
Villarreal, of House District 123, is the only person so far to formally announce intent to run for San Antonio mayor in 2015.
“That election takes place during regular legislative session," Villarreal said. "I cannot be in two places at once, so I have decided not to participate to allow somebody to replace me.”
He said decisions on hot topics, like the state’s education system, need to be in the hands of the right person.
