District 10 News

Brought to you by Councilman Clayton H. Perry




Howdy Neighbors,


Thank you to all who participated in the Mud Creek Greenway Community Meeting last week. If you were unable to join, please view the recorded meeting here. Please join us for the next District 10 Community Meeting on Monday, October 18, at 7 PM at the Tool Yard. Attend in-person or tune in virtually. Because the Tool Yard is a City facility, masks are required at the in-person meeting. 


A proposed draft of projects for the 2022 bond program was presented at this week's City Council meeting, and I was disappointed to see that more of the $1.2 billion proposed wasn't allocated towards needed infrastructure projects across the community. City Staff is still determining the final list of bond projects that will be presented to the Citizen Bond Committees to analyze and make their recommendations to City Council in January. Once the list is vetted by the Citizen Bond Committees and approved by City Council, the final list will be made into propositions to be voted on by the entire community in May 2022. I will continue to advocate for more investments towards our roads and critical infrastructure needs in our District 10 neighborhoods and all across the city. 


Do you have ideas for District 10? If so, the District 10 Team would like to attend your next HOA meeting. Please email District10@sanantonio.govwith the date, time, and point of contact to schedule our attendance at your next HOA meeting. I look forward to hearing from you!   


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 may be of any assistance to you. The District 10 team is on hand and available to address your needs and concerns.

"After a “decade of downtown,” City Manager Erik Walsh made sure San Antonio City Council members would see more money allocated for bond projects in their own districts. But after he and city staff presented their list of recommended projects Wednesday, council members said they wanted even more for their neighborhoods."

I visited the Petco Love K9 Center, the San Antonio campus for K9s For Warriors, the nation's largest provider of Service Dogs to veterans. K9s For Warriors is committed to rescuing dogs and ending veteran suicide. Learn about the great work K9s For Warriors does and how to volunteer or donate here.


"New Leash On Life: The K9s for Warriors Story" highlights the journeys of three United States veterans struggling to adapt to life back home. All three suffered from PTSD after returning from serving overseas, and each has found hope and new ways to handle their stress and emotional challenges through the aid of a companion dog. Throughout the documentary, Adam, Shilo and Louis recount their years of service and discuss the PTSD symptoms they faced while trying to re-acclimate to civilian life."


Watch the film here.

The Petco Love K9 Center houses 30 kennels of Service Dogs. Here I am pictured with Service Dog, Moose.
