Three candidates for San Antonio Mayor tackle issues at February forum

Replay video: San Antonio mayoral candidates Mike Villareal, Leticia Van de Putte  and Tommy Adkisson addressed issues ranging from negotiations with the firefighter's and police unions to minimum wage and a living wage at a forum Feb. 7.

The forum was hosted by the Asian American Alliance of San Antonio and drew a crowd of nearly 300 people in the auditorium of Winston Churchill High School.

The three are among nine candidates who have filed to run in the May 9, 2015 election. The other candidates, who were not part of the forum, are Paul A. Martinez, Gerard Ponce, Pogo Mochello Reese, Rhett Rosenquest Smith, Raymond Zavala and Cynthia Brehm.

Feb. 27 is the filing deadline for that race and for candidates for the 10 city council seats whose terms also expire this spring.
