Renteria served the Central and East Austin district on council for two terms beginning in 2015. He will be stepping down in January, and José Velásquez, Daniela Silva, Gavino Fernandez Jr., José Noé Elías, Yvonne Weldon and Esala Wuschner are now contending for that open seat.
The District 3 race has generated more than $113,000 in fundraising among all six candidates led by Velásquez, who brought in more than $75,000 this year. He reported having just over $62,000 remaining at the end of September, while his five competitors reported less than $23,000 on hand among them.
