District 10 Update, 2-6-2018

District 10 Newsflash
Brought to you by Clayton Perry, District 10

February 6th, 2018

Howdy Neighbors, 

Last week over one hundred delegates from San Antonio descended upon Washington, D.C. for the annual SA to DC trip. I was joined on this trip by Mayor Ron Nirenberg, City Manager Sheryl Sculley, and several of my council colleagues. Much of my time in D.C. was spent advocating for our military here in San Antonio. As Military City USA, it is San Antonio's responsibility to support, serve, and promote the growth of our bases.  I advocated for Brooke Army Medical Center (BAMC), which has an estimated economic impact on the San Antonio region of $49 billion annually and is the Department of Defense's only Level I trauma center.  

I've requested an After Action Report from organizations that attended SA to DC 2018. These reports will allow a process for analyzing what happened, why it happened, and how it can be done better by the participants in the future  

Our next District 10 Community Meeting will be held on February 19th at the Tool Yard at 7:00 PM. We'll be joined there by Dr. Brian Gottardy, Superintendent of NEISD, representatives from the SA Food Bank, and Jean Latsha from  Pedcor. I'll also present information regarding the potential for Homestead Tax Exemptions in San Antonio. I rely heavily on the feedback of our neighbors, so please come and encourage others to join you. 

As a reminder, the Primary Election for State Representative and Congress will take place on Tuesday, March 6th, 2018. This election is important and will directly affect you! Early voting takes place from Tuesday, February 20th, 2018 - Friday, March 2nd, 2018. Check your county elections website for voting information and locations. 

As always, thank you for being active community members and leaders here in District 10, and do not hesitate to contact our office if we can be of any assistance to you. 

- Clayton 


Upcoming Community Meetings

District 10 Community Meeting
February 19, 2018 - 10303 Tool Yard


Open Surveys

Here in District 10, we're already looking "down the road" for repairs and upgrades. We've been hard at work reviewing and tweaking the 2018 street repair schedule, but we are always on the lookout for the big projects that can truly transform District 10. We've started a running list of future bond projects for consideration, but we need your help in guiding us to what District 10 needs most. Please help us determine what your priorities are for the future 2022- 2027 Bond by completing this survey. It's not too early for us to start this process at our level. 

Basura Bash Registration is Now OPEN

Mark your calendars for FEBRUARY 17, 2018 and join us at the Robert L. B. Tobin Park Trailhead to clean up the Salado Creek area.

We will need approximately 200 volunteers to sign up this year. If you are interested in participating as an individual or team, click here.

Please provide as accurate of a headcount as possible for group registrations. Our registration closes when we hit 200 volunteers; if you overestimate, we may be shorthanded on the day of the event.

Let's Rodeo, San Antonio

The San Antonio Rodeo is giving you all a chance to come out and rodeo on opening day, Thursday, February 8th. Present this at any gate for one grounds admission.

Flames Grand Opening

Flames opened last month in District 10 and is definitely worth a visit for lunch, dinner, or dessert. We stopped by their Grand Opening and were impressed with the hospitality and the Baked Alaska. Flames is located at 3131 Nacogdoches Rd, stop by and welcome them to the neighborhood.

Know of a business about to break ground or launch a grand opening? Let us know and we will include the announcement and any photos from the event in the newsletter.

San Antonio Humane Society


We had an opportunity to meet with the San Antonio Humane Society recently. They are currently in the middle of the El Rey Fido Fundraising Competition.

If you're unfamiliar with it, the El Rey Fido Fundraising Competition is a fundraising campaign that takes place in the months leading up to Fiesta! Each year, participating canines compete to join the El Rey Fido Royal Court, with the top-fundraising dog being crowned El Rey Fido. All funds raised by each participant goes back towards helping the animals at the San Antonio Humane Society. The El Rey Fido Coronation, an official Fiesta event, is held annually to recognize and honor El Rey Fido and the Royal Court members' efforts to raise funds and awareness for the pets at the San Antonio Humane Society.
