This year’s race for mayor of this city is shaping up as a contest between the incumbent and one of his predecessors.
Incumbent Gerardo Sanchez and Joe Harper, currently a San Luis city councilman, have taken out nominating petitions to run for mayor in the city’s Aug. 26 primary election.
Sanchez will be asking voters to elect him to his first full term as mayor. Serving as a city councilman in 2012, he was named by the council to finish the remaining two years of the term of Juan Carlos Escamilla, who stepped down as mayor to run for the state Legislature.
