SA Mayoral and Council candidate forum

SAN ANTONIO – Time is winding down leading to the General Election in May.

A candidate forum was held on the West Side Monday night to allow people to get to know the top candidates who could soon lead the city of San Antonio.

Questions from the audience were at times tough and often rooted in personal experiences.

Texas Organizing Project hosted the forum.

The group identified four key areas important to voters; including wages, immigration rights, criminal justice reform, and improving neighborhoods.

Organizer Laquita Garcia with TOP said, “We encourage people to vote on issues that affect their families and everyday lives and it’s important when they go to the polls they remember who are champions two issues that affect the most.”

Candidates were asked to sign an agreement that if elected they would honor campaign promises.

The group that hosted the forum plans to announce endorsements Tuesday.
