Dear District 10 Residents,
Since last month, the Charter
Review Commission has been meeting each week to make some very
important decisions. Our goal is to seek input from the public on
changes to update the rules that govern our city that would
ultimately require voter approval. One proposal that my office
brought forward is Council pay. The Commission has no substantive
disagreements on this issue and has since recommended that council
members receive the median household income amount of $45,755 and
$65,755 for the mayor. Although I have clearly stated that I will
not personally receive this pay, I strongly recommend it for future
The Commission seeks to have
amendment language approved for the ballot by the end of this
month. In addition, they will call for a special election to vote
on these amendments in May. Public meetings are being held every
Wednesday and I highly encourage each of you to either attend to
speak before Council or submit input on these amendments here.
Last week, I was in Washington DC participating in the annual SA to
DC trip. We had several meetings to inform members of Congress of
the City's Federal priorities. It is my hope that we can obtain
more federal funding for transportation and infrastructure so we do
not have to rely on toll roads to ease congestion. We also
addressed our aviation needs such as more direct flights from San
Antonio and the requirements necessary to protect our military
installations and their missions.
Please don't hesitate to email or
call the District 10 office if you have any questions or comments
about any of these issues.
