Tommy Adkisson endorses Mayor Ivy Taylor for re-election, 5-22

Mayor Taylor's Experience & Diplomacy
Earn Endorsement from Tommy Adkisson

 On the steps of City Hall, with nearly one hundred supporters, former Bexar County Commissioner Tommy Adkisson formally endorsed Mayor Ivy Taylor in the runoff race for Mayor of San Antonio.

Speaking to numerous members of the media and a diverse crowd, Mayor Taylor stated, “Adkisson’s love for the community is evident- it shines through every time he speaks,” and went on to say she agrees with the messaging Adkisson brought forth on earlier this year on the campaign trail. 

Taylor said our local government must work “to ensure that we have strong neighborhoods across the city- to ensure that our citizens have confidence in their government- especially for those areas of our community that have been neglected in the past. We need to return the Mayor’s seat to the people!”
As she thanked Adkisson, Mayor Taylor said, “I really am humbled and I am grateful for this endorsement.”

Adkisson based his endorsement decision on Mayor Taylor’s significant local experience and diversity of thought, as well as her ability to exercise incredible tact and genuine diplomacy. 

We need someone who will put San Antonio first, someone who will put politics aside and get the job done. Mayor Taylor is the right candidate for the job and the right person for this city."

Both Mayor Taylor and Adkisson are united in their commitment to refocus local resources on the core functions of city government: walkable and sustainable neighborhoods, road infrastructure- along with curbs and sidewalks, flood control, and supporting small businesses.
