Still few voters in District 4 race

Tuesday, January 18, 2022 by Jo Clifton

Voters in City Council District 4 have been reluctant to vote in the special election to choose the successor to Council Member Greg Casar, who is running for Congress. As of Sunday night, only 742 voters – just a little more than 2 percent of those registered to vote in the district – have cast a ballot. Perhaps voters are worried about catching Covid-19, but only 13 showed up Sunday at the Chinatown Center. There were 41 voters all day at the city’s Permitting and Development Center, and just five at the Gus Garcia Recreation Center. Early voting continues through this Friday and the election is scheduled for Jan. 25. Candidates Monica Guzmán, José “Chito” Vela, Jade Lovera, Amanda Rios, Melinda Schiera, Ramesses II Setepenre, and Isa Boonto are counting on the voters of District 4 to make a decision.
