Mayoral Horse Race: Interim mayor selection starts soon

Last week at a Centro San Antonio luncheon, the talk of the town was the future of San Antonio’s urban core and outgoing Mayor Julian Castro, whose nomination as Secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development had just been confirmed, lead the conversation.

But the talk of the luncheon table was who would make the best interim mayor between Castro’s resignation and the general election in May. On July 22, the 10-member city council is expected to select (or try, anyway, Bob Rivard has an interesting theory on why that might not happen on the first go-round at his Rivard Report) with Castro presiding before he catches his plane to D.C.

District 2 Councilwoman Ivy Taylor has said she would be interested in serving as interim without running for the mayor’s spot, and she proved a popular pick at our luncheon table.

As for the general mayoral race, Rick Casey, in a recent column for the San Antonio Express-News, is hailing state Rep. Mike Villarreal as the frontrunner for the 2015 election. According to Casey, the only real contender against Villarreal could be State Sen. and Lt. Gov. candidate Leticia Van De Putte, if she doesn’t win the lite guv race first.

Stay tuned.
