Last week Council voted to approve the FY 2018 Budget. This
year's budget reflects the hard work of City staff and my fellow
council members in ensuring that our City's needs are being met. I am
so grateful to all of the organizations and community members who
took the time to attend the City's Budget Open Houses and those who
contacted my office to address their budget concerns. Though I
was unsuccessful in getting a property tax rollback or a City
homestead exemption, I believe the conversation needs to continue
about tangible property tax relief for San Antonio residents.
There are many wins for District 10 in the FY 2018 budget. In
addition to the $5.5 million that District 10 was slated to receive
in road repairs, we were awarded $8.1 million. Our roads were among
the worst in the City. This additional funding allows for vast
improvement over the next two years. The budget also includes
$500,000 for the Northeast Corridor Improvement Partnership, a
program that previously received $100,000. Additionally, I have
secured funding to correct the troublesome intersection of Randolph
It was announced yesterday that TCI identified funding for a
dedicated pedestrian sidewalk along the east side of Judson Road. The
recent addition of IDEA Judson and several apartment buildings in
this area made the need for sidewalks more prevalent than ever. This
sidewalk will be erected on Judson Road from Sam's Club to
Independence. We will keep you all updated as construction begins.
this month, Council offices around the city collected
donations for the victims of Hurricane Harvey. We were

I was born in Houston, TX, but moved to
Clarksville, TN with my family as a kindergartner. There, I went
through the public education system for elementary, middle, and high
school. Though Tennessee will always be home, Texas was calling me
back. The summer before my senior year, I toured over 25 Texas
universities and set my sights on Trinity University.
I was accepted to Trinity University and made
the move to San Antonio. I entered my freshman year in August 2012.
While I was there, I discovered my love of Marketing and an interest
in History. I graduated in December 2016 with a degree in Business
Administration with a concentration in Marketing.
After graduation, I was fortunate to begin
working in the District 10 Field Office with Councilman Mike
Gallagher as his Constituent Services Officer. Through my work in the
District 10 Field Office, I have learned so much about inner workings
of the City. After this year's election, I was honored to be asked to
stay on in a new role with Councilman Perry. There is still so much
left for me to learn, and I truly look forward to continuing my
