The temperature has dropped, and I want to
encourage you all to stay warm and safe as we enter fall and winter. Heating
equipment is one of the leading causes of home fire deaths. The San
Antonio Fire Department reminds you that with a few simple safety
tips and precautions you can prevent most heating fires from
happening. Test smoke alarms at least once a month. Install and
maintain CO (carbon monoxide) alarms to avoid the risk of CO
poisoning. Keep anything that can burn at least three-feet away from
heating equipment, like the furnace, fireplace, wood stove, or
portable space heater. Never use your oven to heat your home. Have
heating equipment and chimneys cleaned and inspected every year by a
qualified professional. Remember to turn portable heaters off when
leaving the room or going to bed.
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.

My Thoughts: The Alamo Master Plan
"Many San Antonians have called, emailed,
and attended Council meetings to ask their district's representative
one burning question: What is City Council going to do about the
At this point, all that remains for Council to
weigh in on are street closures and land leases. A May 2017 vote on
the conceptual Alamo plan, which included only four current Council
members, laid the path forward for several items in the current
proposed Alamo plan, including the relocation and repair of the
While most San Antonians agree the Shrine of
Texas Liberty should be protected and enhanced for all to enjoy for
years to come, many of us - including myself - remain unconvinced the
proposed changes to the Alamo are warranted and necessary."

Vulcan Quarry Crusher Run
Vulcan Materials Company is opening the doors
to its 1604 Quarry Saturday,
October 20 for the Second Annual Quarry Crusher
Adventure Run in San Antonio. The 3.1 or 6.2 mile race (single or
double crusher respectively), which is not for the faint of heart,
begins at the top of the quarry and challenges participants run or
walk all the way down to the bottom, before climbing back out at a
steep 8 percent grade.
The race once benefits Soldiers'
Angels, a San Antonio-based organization that works
nationally to provide aid and comfort to the men and women of the
United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, their
families, as well as the growing veteran population. In 2017 alone,
Soldiers' Angels provided $17 million-plus in aid to over 360,000
active service members, veterans, wounded heroes and military
families. Last year's Quarry Crusher Run netted more than $12,000 for
Although the Quarry Crusher Run is much more
physically demanding than a prototypical road race, those of all
athletic skill levels are encouraged to participate.
