Early voting starts Monday in the runoff election between Mayor Norberto “Beto” Salinas and challenger Jaime Gutierrez.
Salinas, a rancher and businessman, has served as mayor of Mission for 16 years, and before that he served as a Hidalgo County commissioner.
Gutierrez, a local businessman who owns a car dealership, says it’s time for change. Originally from Los Angeles, Gutierrez moved to Mission 12 years ago because he really liked the city.
Still, he sees two Missions: the north side and south side.
