WEDNESDAY at noon on "The Source" — The race for Mayor of San Antonio is closer than expected. Will incumbent Ron Nirenberg hold on to the office or succumb to the momentum of challenger Greg Brockhouse?

A candidate must receive over 50 percent of the vote to avoid a runoff. In the May 4 primary election, Nirenberg was less than two percentage points away from victory. 

During his first term, Nirenberg's big projects included the multimodal transportation plan ConnectSA, the Mayor's Housing Policy Task Force to address affordable housing options, and the Climate Action & Adaptation Plan to help the city prepare for climate change.

Continuing with his promise of delivering "the city you deserve," Nirenberg's 2019 campaign platform reinforces top priorites of transportation, the economy and affordable housing, as well as public safety, quality of life, and ethics and accountability.

What are your top issues as a San Antonio resident? What qualities do you value in a leader?

What do you want to know about Nirenberg's vision for our city and its rapidly growing population?

Mayoral candidate and current District 6 City Council representative Greg Brockhouse will be on the show Thursday, May 23.

Guest: Ron Nirenberg, incumbent mayoral runoff candidate
