Cynthia Alvidrez has thrown her hat into another election ring, this time challenging Anthony Williams to become Abilene’s next Mayor.  She previously ran for a spot on Abilene ISD’s  board in 2018, against longtime board member Danny Wheat. Wheat kept his position.  Last year Alvidrez ran for City Council Place 5, losing to incumbent Kyle McAlister.  This time around Alvidrez has focused her campaign on being a voice for people that get overlooked.
