MISSION—As a Mission mayoral candidate Jaime Gutierrez prepared to introduce himself during a public forum Tuesday night, opponent Dr. John Guerra asked to make a quick statement, grabbing the microphone.
“I think that the mayor should have been here,” Guerra said. “I’m just saying that this is inappropriate, very inappropriate for me to answer these questions, and the mayor may be able to take things away from us.”
All three candidates, Gutierrez, Guerra and incumbent Norberto “Beto” Salinas were invited to answer questions in a public forum hosted by the Progress Times at Speer Memorial Library.
The candidates were asked questions covering their top three issues in the city, campaign costs and the amount of hours they would devote to Mission if elected as mayor.
