Mercurio Martinez III for Mayor – City of Laredo
I am Mercurio “Merc” Martinez, III, and I am running for Mayor of Laredo.

I am a native of this great city, graduating from J.W. Nixon High School and later from St. Edward’s University, where I studied business, marketing, and finance. I have also been a realtor, attaining a Graduate Real-Estate Institute designation. Most importantly, I am a husband and father of 3 who loves to grill, spend time with my family, and get in a good yoga workout.
I have always sought to help the city of Laredo in any way possible, both in my district and beyond. As a realtor, I helped develop the Laredo Association of Realtors into an organization that advocates at the local, state, and national level for private property rights. As a member of City Council, I brought people together to solve complex problems and provide concrete solutions for citizens of Laredo.

As your Mayor, I will ensure accountability to the citizens of Laredo. I will bring honesty, integrity, and the ability to lead our community forward towards growth and economic development. YourPrioritiesFirst means together we can make Laredo a beautiful place to live.
