The Source: Mayoral Race Appears With Van de Putte

Texas Public Radio

Last night State Senator Leticia Van de Putte announced her candidacy for San Antonio mayor. Van de Putte's entrance comes after an unsuccessful run for Lieutenant Governor earlier this month. The move made her the second declared candidate for mayor with former State Representative Mike Villarreal. 

Both candidates have been active in San Antonio politics for years and their entrance into the field may convince current city council members. 

Speculation over Mayor Ivy Taylor, district 9 councilman Joe Krier entering the race still exists, but who else might be in contention?

Who do you want to see as our next Mayor? What issues would sway your vote?
