San Antonio's mayor and several City Council members seeking re-election in May 6 elections appeared to be headed for big wins.

As of 11:30 p.m., Bexar County elections data showed Mayor Ron Nirenberg securing a fourth and final two-year term with 60.7% of the vote, outlasting eight challengers, according to Community Impact reports.

Nirenberg campaigned on continuing momentum on issues, such as economic and workforce development, boosting affordable housing, and improving public safety.

Nirenberg told Community Impact he is grateful for the trust that voters have placed in him to continue leading the city for another two years.

“The work we’ve done to rally around the issues that matter the most to the community has been great, but the work isn’t done,” he added.

Incumbent Manny Pelaez won the City Council District 8 race and claimed a fourth and final term, beating his lone opponent, video production business owner Cesario Garcia, with 70.4% of the vote, county data showed.

Pelaez campaigned on improving infrastructure, bolstering public safety, especially in respects to curbing family violence, and on overseeing the end of 2017 bond-funded projects and the beginnings of 2022 bond-funded initiatives.

Pelaez addressed constituents on his Facebook page, saying he remains committed to enhancing the quality of life for residents.

"From crime and safety to a robust local economy, and every concern in between, my team and I are dedicated to improving our great city now and in the years ahead while still maintaining what makes us unique and beautiful,” he said.

In the City Council District 9 contest, incumbent John Courage won a fourth and final term with 62.4% of the vote.

A U.S. Air Force retiree and a former educator, Courage faced three challengers, each of whom claimed the incumbent had not done enough to help fight crime, and that Courage was not conservative enough to reflect a majority of his District 9 constituents, according to Community Impact's election preview.

Courage issued a statement, saying he was overwhelmed by voters’ show of support.

I also want to congratulate the other District 9 candidates for running a clean campaign. I hope to meet with them and help them find another opportunity to be of service to District 9,” he added.

In the City Council District 10 race to succeed representative Clayton Perry, who declined a bid for a fourth term, former city zoning Commissioner Marc Whyte secured 57.8% of the vote to outlast six fellow contestants.

Political observers called Whyte a front-runner in the District 10 contest given his endorsements from Perry and several past District 10 council members as well as his civic involvement experiences, which include serving with the city's zoning commission and the Northeast Neighborhood Alliance.

Whyte issued a statement, saying he was honored to be voted onto council.

“Together, we will build a more prosperous future for our families and community. Let’s get to work,” he said.

All results are unofficial until canvassed.

Perry announced in February he would not seek a fourth and final term in office. Perry on April 14 pleaded no contest to charges resulting from an arrest following his involvement in an alleged vehicular hit and run on Nov. 6, according to court records.

Perry was sentenced to 12 months of probation, and is required to conduct 24 hours of community service, drive with a vehicle ignition lock and pay a $500 fine along with court fees. Additionally, Perry is prohibited from consuming alcohol and will be randomly tested for the duration of his probationary period.

County election totals pointed to a 15.3% voter turnout in this spring local election cycle, lower than the 17.2% turnout seen in the city's 2021 elections.
