Bruno Lozano, who is known to his friends as “Ralphy”, has defeated incumbent Roberto Garza in the May 5th electoral race for Mayor of Del Rio.
Bruno “Ralphy” Lozano is 35-year-old, which will make him the youngest person elected Mayor of the City of Del Rio. Lozano is also an ex security forces patrolman with the US Military.
Lozano ran on a platform of unifying the city which is in stark contrast to the judicial and seemingly prosecutorial style of Garza.
Lozano had decided to run for office based on his friends who imparted on him the knowledge that his town needs a “forward thinker” and a unifier.
With 62% of the vote Lozano took the position of Mayor along with a record breaking amount of the youth vote which is hard to turn out in the border areas and especially in an off year election.
