Two potential presidential candidates are in Dallas today. Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush will talk about immigration to one organization. Then in the evening, past Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will address a group of apartment executives.
San Antonio's District 9, which covers the city's North and Far North sides, has two candidates for city council. One of them is the incumbent for the seat, Elisa Chan, and the other is Chan’s former campaign worker and chief of constituency, Jason Salinas.
Chan would like to see a third term, but Salinas said he wanted to give voters an option, so he signed up for the race on the day of the deadline.
"Democracy works best when voters are given legitimate choices, and when citizens are heard and are properly represented," Salinas said.
San Antonio’s East Side has long been in the spotlight for gun violence and concerns over safety. In late 2011, a series of shootings sparked community meetings, and in response District 2 Councilwoman Ivy Taylor dedicated time for community forums.
Residents like Jessica Evans called for increased police presence.
