District 8 City Councilman Ron Nirenberg has officially joined the race for mayor of San Antonio. The 39-year-old councilman announced his candidacy in front of supporters at his campaign headquarters on Broadway Saturday morning.

“I am running for mayor because I want to make San Antonio the city you deserve,” he told the crowd of about 300 people. “We deserve a city government that spends your tax dollars judiciously and efficiently not on boondoggle projects or behind closed doors without the bright light of public scrutiny.”
