District 10 Newsflash

Brought to you by Councilman Clayton H. Perry



February 2021


Howdy Neighbors,


As many of you know, I was recently hospitalized with COVID-19. Thankfully, I am feeling much better and recovering from this illness at home. The District 10 Team shared all of your well wishes with me, and I want each of you to know that your kind words and offers to help meant the world to me. While the vaccine has shone a light at the end of the tunnel, it's important to remember that the pandemic is still ongoing. It is important to not let your guard down, even among close friends and family. We must stay vigilant, wear masks, wash your hands, and practice social distancing when possible.


Thank you to everyone who attended January's NNA meeting. The meeting agenda included briefings from Gordon Hartman and Allan Castro with Morgan Wonderland’s regarding their Multi Assistance Center, Dr. Junda Woo and Dr. Anita Kurian regarding the City’s local vaccine distribution, Syed Mehdi and Jon Van Woensel with an update on the San Antonio Airport Strategic Planning, and District 10’s report on current City issues. If you missed the meeting you can watch it on YouTube here.


February's District 10 Community Meeting will be on Monday, February 15, at 6PM. We'll be joined by Rick Aste - Director and CEO of the McNay, Commissioners DeBerry and Calvert, and Constable Mark Vojvodich. To register, click here.


As always, thank you for being active community members and leaders here in District 10. Please do not hesitate to contact our office if we can be of any assistance to you. The District 10 team is still on hand and available to address your needs and concerns throughout this time.


- Clayton


Community Highlight - District 10 Blood Drive


Thank you to everyone who participated in the District 10 Blood Drive in January and to Northern Hills United Methodist Church for opening their doors to us. Your willingness to donate blood helped save lives across South Texas. Your donation truly makes a difference. The demand for blood donors remains extremely urgent, with 500 donations a day needed to meet patient needs.


Due to the shortage, the Center is extending hours at the donor rooms at Shavano Park and the Donor Pavilion on IH 10, from Thursday to Saturday. Donors can make an appointment by visiting or calling 210-731-5590. All South Texas Blood & Tissue Center donors in February will receive a $10 Amazon gift card, voucher for a 20-ounce smoothie of their choice from Smoothie King on Sundays, as well as points to redeem additional gift cards or merchandise. Blood donors also can give at the University Hospital Blood Donor Room, 4502 Medical Drive. To schedule an appointment with University Hospital, call 210-358-2812. 



Seeking Applicants - Rate Advisory Committee

The San Antonio community is invited to participate in a new Rate Advisory Committee (RAC) that CPS Energy is forming this year. CPS Energy is now accepting applications from residents who are eligible to serve.

The Rate Advisory Committee will also be guided by these same pillars.


The Committee will be made up of 21 members comprised of 11 appointees by the CPS Energy Board of Trustees, including Mayoral appointees and 10 City Council appointees. Members of the community who qualify and are interested in serving on the Rate Advisory Committee can apply at Interested persons can visit the website for more information, an online application package which includes a description of the role and qualifications.
