Adriana Rocha Garcia defeats Johnny Arredondo and secures the District 4 seat with 72.4 percent of the vote.
San Antonio’s June runoff election began with a slow start Saturday morning, with about 5,500 voters casting ballots before 10 a.m.
The campaign finance report Keith Toney filed last week was a headscratcher.
As Adriana Rocha Garcia and Johnny Arredondo campaign for District 4’s council seat, they also must keep the district’s typical low voter turnout in mind.
San Antonio’s progressive-leaning City Council that took office in 2017 could swing back towards a more philosophically divided body this year.
Councilman Rey Saldaña has endorsed Adriana Garcia for the District 4 seat he will vacate after serving the South Side for eight years.
Interestingly, the fight for District 4 has produced fewer candidates than the other council races at play on the May 6 ballot.
