LAREDO, TEXAS (KGNS) -- The day after a defeat for the Office of Webb County Treasurer, Laredo Mayor Raul Salinas is expecting a break from public office.

Mayor Salinas has been mayor since 2006, when he was elected by a small lead.

Tuesday was the last day of his 11 month election campaign.

Now his full attention is back to his role with the city.

His term is set to end in November.

Salinas says he's proud of some economic and financial accomplishments the city has made, pointing to a good unemployment rate, budget surplus and bond rating.

He also says he's proud of his work, voicing opposition to a wall along the border proposed by the federal government.
