BROWNSVILLE – Early voting for local city and school elections has ended as of 7 p.m. Tuesday.

Three people are on the ballot for the District 2 Commissioner, the seat currently held by Jessica Tetreau.  

District 2 is located on the north side of Brownsville, an area that has seen business growth.

Tetreau is seeking re-election and is running against candidates Pat Ahumada and Caty Presas-Garcia.

She tells CHANNEL 5 NEWS she initially ran for office because she didn’t like the direction the city was going.

Ahumada is served as Brownsville’s mayor from 1991 to 1993 and from 2007 to 2011; he says he’s running again because he wants residents of the area to have access to city hall.

Presas-Garcia previously worked for the Brownsville Police Department and served as a member at the Brownsville school district board.

She promises to work with a team in the community for the city of Brownsville to make it better for all.
