The Mayoral Horse Race: Odds on the interim

Photo: N/A, License: N/A


While Josh Baugh at the Express-News may consider District 2’s Ivy Taylor a “front-runner” for the interim appointment as mayor, her colleagues must consider her unpopular vote against last year’s Non-Discrimination Ordinance change to protect LGBT citizens. District 6’s Ray Lopez, Taylor’s strongest competitor for interim, was on the winning side of that fight and simply described it as “the right thing to do.” No matter who nabs the interim spot, if they want to stay there, they’ll have to confront an open election in May, in which State Rep. Mike Villarreal (No. 11 on the track) is a formidable early frontrunner. Last week, the representative announced he would resign from the state legislature in order to focus full-time on the mayoral campaign. Bernal is candidly telling his supporters that he’ll put the mayoral race on the backburner in order not to split votes with Villarreal, and in fact, may make moves for the resulting open seat in the Lege. This week’s dark horse is Tommy Adkisson (No. 12), the lame duck Precinct 4 Bexar County Commissioner whose most recent political battle ended in the failure to unseat County Judge Nelson Wolff. He’s said to be mulling a run once his term as County Commissioner is done.
