Questions Rise About Manuel Medina's Many Roles In Bexar County Democratic Party
Bexar County’s Democratic Party Chair is facing criticism over his use of the party’s headquarters during his unsuccessful run for mayor. Critics are also questioning how Manuel Medina controls of the local party and if greater transparency is needed.
On Election night, May 6, Manuel Medina’s campaign headquarters was jamming. His supporters are cueing up for food and beer after spending the day getting out the vote.
The election watch party is at the headquarters, 3000 IH-10 West at Mulberry, located near downtown off Fredericksburg Road. On top of the building is a Medina for Mayor Billboard. This is normally the Bexar County Democratic Party headquarters.
But during the last four months the party took a backseat as Medina ran for mayor. According to Medina’s campaign expense reports his campaign paid the rent on the building and the utilities.
