There was a steady stream of voters headed into Mission City Hall on Monday evening, the first day of early voting in the runoff race between Mayor Norberto “Beto” Salinas and challenger Jaime Gutierrez.
Irene Garza, a native Mission resident, said she’s voted in most elections over the years, and even with only one race on the ballot, it was still important to her to cast a ballot.
Meanwhile, voter Meri Gomez, said she wants to ensure that somebody with a heart for the city is elected mayor.
“I believe it’s important to have someone who has been a part of this community and has not only a professional interest, but also a personal interest,” Gomez said.
