Elected Mayor

Ron Nirenberg
Nonpartisan

On May 4, 2019, the city of San Antonio, Texas held an election to choose the next mayor of San Antonio.[1] The election was a nonpartisan blanket primary. As no candidate secured a majority of the vote (50% of all votes cast +1), a runoff was held on June 8, 2019 between the two top candidates, incumbent mayor Ron Nirenberg and San Antonio City Councilman Greg Brockhouse.[2] In the runoff, Nirenberg narrowly defeated Brockhouse, 51.11% to 48.89%.[3]

Background

In the 2017 San Antonio mayoral election, Nirenberg became the first person in twenty years to defeat an incumbent mayor when he defeated Ivy Taylor in a highly contested runoff election. During his tenure in office, Nirenberg's progressive platform was often criticized and challenged by Greg Brockhouse, a member of the San Antonio City Council who also took office in 2017.[4][5] Brockhouse repeatedly stated that he would challenge for the mayor's office when the 2019 elections were held. Nirenberg officially declared his candidacy for re-election on January 29, 2019[6] and Brockhouse officially declared his candidacy on February 9, 2019.[7]

Candidates

A total of nine candidates submitted applications to be on the ballot for mayor. Nirenberg and Brockhouse were identified as the primary two candidates in the election.[6][8]
