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 Council members. 
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.
