    I am not surprised because San Antonio is a very conservative city deep in the heart of religiously conservative Texas. Even Fort Worth which is quite conservative is more progressive on gay issues than San Antonio.

    Her social policies leave a lot to be desired. But you know, shes has done some interesting work for the east side of our city (San Antonio). That neighborhood is still in a form of disarray, but thanks to Ivy Taylor and efforts put forth by the San Antonio Growth for the East Side (SAGE for short), changes have been made and the impact has been slightly positive. Here is a little side read about some of the challenges the east side community has yet to face...

    The article is from a local publication called the San Antonio Current.


    P.S: Im in no way being an advocate for her mayoral election. Just putting it out there that shes not a complete "sack -o-useless".

    She needs to be reminded that at one time many thought women's rights were a waste of time too.

    She needs to be reminded that everyone pays her salary, including people she obviously thinks are a, "waste of time".

    Austin and San Antonio are in south Texas, which votes blue.
    Austin and its neighboring suburbs vote blue, not so much with more conservative San Antonio, Corpus Christi, and the rest of South Texas. Those areas are a mixed bag. There are a large number of Hospanics that are dyed in the wool red republicans in south Texas.
