Friday, April 17, the San Antonio Environmental Network kicked off Fiesta with a forum featuring three of the main contenders in the May 9 mayoral election: District 8 Councilwoman Diane Cibrian, public-relations guru Trish DeBerry-Mejia, and former District 7 Councilman Julián Castro. Questions for the candidates were submitted by members of Environment Texas, the Greater Edwards Aquifer Alliance, the Bexar Audubon Society, and other environmental non-profits. The evening began with the candidates’ statements regarding their support and vision for Mayor Hardberger’s Mission Verde initiatives.
