WATCH: Meet Mayor Brenda Gunter's Challenger
SAN ANGELO, TX — Based upon the candidate filings so far, the next mayor from the City of San Angelo will be female, but the question is who will it be? Brenda Gunter or Silvara Lawson.
Lawson, a local realtor filed to run for mayor last Friday and in her first interview with the media this afternoon shared her enthusiasm for bringing change to San Angelo.
"I know that she (Brenda Gunter) and everyone has done a great job so far," said Lawson. "But I feel like there can be alternative ways to actually bring about a solution."
Lawson spoke about what inspired her to run for mayor, her ideas on economic development, and housing while addressing a recent comment suggesting that she's a stripper.
