About Me

Always a Democrat. I can't understand conservatives. I try to understand them, but I can't. They don't make sense. Our country has gone so far right since 1981. I was just an average American who took many Democratic values for granted when Reagan was elected. It was like the rug was pulled out from under our society. Reagan ruined our country.

In Upset, Ron Nirenberg is New Mayor of San Antonio

Iris Dimmick - Rivard Report

Mayor Ivy Taylor conceded to Councilman Ron Nirenberg (D8) just after 9 p.m. on Saturday, June 10.

“I first want to thank Ivy Taylor, our mayor, for her years of service,” Nirenberg said in his victory speech. “It’s not easy to do the work that we do, as any family member can attest. It takes a lot of time, it takes a lot of energy, and I want to thank our mayor for the service to our city.”

With 100% of precincts reporting, Nirenberg received a resounding 54.59% of the vote to Taylor’s 45.41% Exactly 5,266 votes separated the two in the early voting results. That margin grew to more than 9,091.

“There are many issues obviously that differentiate my vision from Mayor Taylor’s – on transportation issues, on diversity issues, on public safety issues – and I think that the voters have made some clear choices about the direction that they want to take the city,” Nirenberg said earlier in the evening. “This is a brand new Council so we want to get everyone together and start working on a unified direction for the city.”
