Ironically, two of the three Mayoral candidates will continue as Council members as their districts are also headed to a runoff. Paul Alexander's district will see Rodney Fleming vs.Trinidad Aguirre. Kendall Hirschfeld's district has H.R. "Winkie" Wardlaw vs. David McBride. Marty Self, Don Vardeman and Charlotte Farmer were the outright winners in today's meeting.
Only Dwain Morrison will cease to serve as City Council member as a result of today's election. He'll have a choice as to how his spend his time, sitting in the audience and making observations or out campaigning.
I'd bet Morrison will be present when the MedHab update hits the agenda, which won't be Tuesday, May 14. Will Councilman Silvas ask why his request wasn't honored?
Given Silvas was Mayor Pro Tempore when Council gave final approval for the "robust" economic development incentive package, he is well within his bounds to ask what's happened in the interim. Minutes from August 21, 2012 stated:
Councilmember Silvas resumed the meeting as Mayor Pro Tempore.Silvas is not going away, regardless of who becomes Mayor. It would behoove paid city leaders to honor his request. If history repeats itself, Mayor New will not be present for any MedHab related business, which I expect to apply to MedHab updates

Alvin New may not want his two hats to collide, his San Angelo Mayor hat and MedHab Board of Director's cap. Will the MedHab update come before New hangs up his Mayoral hat? We may find out on the 14th.
