Mission Mayor Norberto “Beto” Salinas was confident heading into Election Day that he’d keep his title once votes are counted Saturday evening.
He faces local businessman Jaime Gutierrez in a runoff; the only race on the ballot.
After Salinas narrowly missed clinching his seat without a runoff in May, he said he hadn’t changed his campaign strategy. He’s depending on voters who have kept him in office more than 16 years to hit the polls.
“I think they started going out again to vote,” Salinas said. “I’m very happy to see that they responded to the campaign.”
