After a close primary race, former Councilman Ron Nirenberg ousted then-Mayor Ivy Taylor from the mayor's office in a June runoff election. In the first six months of his leadership, the city's made a shift toward battling inequity across the city and conserving the environment — a more progressive focus than under Taylor's guidance.
