140805_ivy_taylor_mayor.jpg

The communications director for San Antonio Mayor Ivy Taylor has confirmed for TPR that Taylor plans to join the race for mayor in May. 

Taylor was appointed as mayor when Julian Castro left the office to become Secretary of HUD.

The confirmation of her candidacy follows months of speculation as to whether she would join the field of at least 11 other contenders who have already filed.

State Sen. Leticia Van de Putte, State Rep. Mike Villareal and former Bexar County Commissioner Tommy Adkisson are among the best known candidates Taylor will face.
