The local city council elections in San Antonio was just announced. There
were two significant trends that are noticeable. Out of the 10 city council
members, 7 of them are under the age of 40. Also for the first time, the
majority of the council members are minorities - either Hispanic or African
Another interesting trend. The days of buying votes with money is fast
disappearing. The mayoral candidate with the largest vote spent very little
money. The high spender who spent 10 times was defeated soundly even though
he is an incumbent. Also the largest vote getter mentioned above is a woman
who has battled very popular issues.
In the next century, we can see a turnaround everywhere including politics.
Will TS take hints from the changed trends? Who knows?
