City Council and Mayoral Candidate Questionnaires 

click to enlarge 1474636.jpg

Once again we sent out a candidate questionnaire to everyone running in the 2013 City Elections that we could track down. Read our questionnaire below, and then search for answers your district and mayoral candidates.

The Current simply provides the candidates’ answers, in their own words, we are not responsible for the veracity of these candidates’ claims, and the opinions they provide are their own, not the Current’s.

Armed with this information, make sure you make it to the polls this year! Early voting starts April 29 and election day is May 11. For more information visit the City of San Antonio’s election page.

Greg Brockhouse
Brockhouse declined to send in his answers, but at least he let us know why:
“I want to thank you for the opportunity to answer your Council Questionnaire.  I wanted to personally respond and let you know that I am respectfully passing on completing the form.  Your survey offers the opportunity to answer 10 out of 15 questions and although I will undoubtedly see some of those issues if elected, at this point and time and I am laser focused on the issues of District 6.  Several of your questions have little to do with the community I am hoping to represent. 

Please know that I am thankful for the opportunity and if I am blessed to be elected, I plan on being a focused, fair, and hard working Councilmember.  This means learning all of the issues facing our community and in some cases being a humble listener and working with the Councilmember whose District will be most impacted by the items on your survey.”
