SAN ANTONIO — Early voting begins Monday in the May 4 election that includes the race for San Antonio mayor.

The city will vote on whether to re-elect Mayor Ron Nirenberg or elect one of his eight challengers. They include current District 6 Councilman Greg Brockhouse.

In some recent debates with the candidates, Nirenberg and Brockhouse have gone head to head on several issues including the firefighter union's contract, the unemployment rate and the renovation plan for the Alamo.

They have also sparred about the city council's vote against adding a Chick-fil-A location to the airport.
