Last week, the
NEC successfully ran another clean up at the Perrin Beitel-Nacogdoches-Thousand
Oaks triangle. I was very pleased to see so many members of our
community turn out at 7:30 AM on a Monday to clean up this area.
Beautification is one of the NEC's core goals in corridor
revitalization; we invite you to share in the NEC's goal and look
for ways to keep your community clean. If your neighborhood
organization, church, or school would like help coordinating a
clean-up event in your area, please let us know.
There are two
surveys needing your input. The SA Speak Up! Survey allows you to
voice your opinion on what city programs and services matter most
to you, and how you would like to see funding distributed for
Fiscal Year 2017. To take this survey, visit www.saspeakup.com.
Rideshare survey wants your opinion on ridesharing companies
operating here in San Antonio. As you may remember, companies like
Uber and Lyft are operating under a pilot program here in San Antonio.
Under this program, drivers can opt in to performing a 10-print
background check for additional security. Users of Lyft and Uber
see which drivers have performed this security measure, and have
the opportunity to choose a driver who has passed the additional
background check. After last weekend's vote in Austin, it is
important to know where San Antonio residents stand. To take this
survey, click here.

reminder, during early voting, you can vote at any early voting
