Mayoral Elections

City rankings are based on July 1, 2019 Census Bureau population estimates. They are for the city itself, not the associated metropolitan area.

San Antonio

San Antonio is the 7th largest city in the United States, with a population of about 1.5 million. The current mayor is independent Ron Nirenberg. He was elected to a second two-year term with about 51% of the vote in 2019. That was a top two runoff against Greg Brockhouse. 

14 candidates are on the ballot, including Nirenberg and Brockhouse. If a June 5 runoff is required, it would likely be a rematch between these two men.  

 

Fort Worth

Fort Worth is the 13th largest city in the United States, with a population of about 900,000. The current mayor is Republican Betsy Price, who is completing her 5th two-year term. She is not standing for reelection. 

10 candidates are on the ballot. The most prominent appear to be Brian Byrd, Mattie Parker, Deborah Peoples and Ann Zadeh. 

 

Arlington

Arlington is the 49th largest city in the United States, with a population of about 400,000. The current mayor is Republican Jeff Williams, who won a third two-year term in 2019. He is unable to run again due to term limits.

There are seven candidates on the ballot. Attorney Jim Ross has spent the most money and has received the endorsement of the current mayor.  

Plano

Plano is the 70th largest city in the United States, with a population of about 300,000. The current mayor is Republican Harry LaRosiliere. He won a second four-year term in 2017 and cannot run due to term limits.

There are three candidates on the ballot

Garland

Garland is the 94th largest city in the United States, with a population of about 240,000. The current mayor is Republican Scott LeMay who was unopposed when he first ran in 2019. LeMay is seeking a second two-year term. He is opposed by Roel Garcia. As there are only two candidates on the ballot, no runoff election will be needed.
