On June 8, voters will decide who will replace mayoral candidate Greg Brockhouse as their District 6 San Antonio City Council representative. 

Residents of this far West Side district had four choices in the May 4 primary and narrowed the field to two – Andy Greene and Melissa Cabello Havrda – who will face off once again in the runoff election.

A candidate must receive over 50 percent of the the vote to avoid a runoff. Havrda and Greene respectively received 47 and 35 percent

Havrda's top three areas of focus are improving schools, improving housing choices and creating safe places. In 2017 she lost the District 6 runoff by 435 votes to Greg Brockhouse, who is currently campaigning to be San Antonio's next mayor. 

As a senior advisor and staff member for former District 6 representatives Ray Lopez and Brockhouse, Greene is a familiar face around City Hall. His top priorities are street maintenance, neighborhood safety and job growth. 

What are the big issues for District 6 voters? What are the candidates' qualifications and what do they hope to accomplish if elected?

Guests:

  • Andy Greene, District 6 runoff candidate for San Antonio City Council
  • Melissa Cabello Havrda, District 6 runoff candidate for San Antonio City Council
