Howdy Neighbors,

Happy New Year! Welcome to 2019, folks. I hope that everyone had a fantastic holiday season. We are looking forward to what's to come here in District 10, and as always, will rely heavily on your input and feedback.

Before the holidays, District 2 Councilman William "Cruz" Shaw announced that he would be leaving his position to serve as an associate judge. After consideration of many qualified candidates, City Council appointed Mr. Art Hall to fill the District 2 seat for the remainder of former Councilman Shaw's term.

City Council has also started the process to hire San Antonio's next City Manager. Interviews will take place over two days during a Special City Council Meeting called for 1 p.m. on Monday, January 14th and 9 a.m. Tuesday, January 15th at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center. City Council will open the meeting in Room 224, then recess into executive session to consult with the City Attorney's Office and interview the applicants. Applicants advancing to the second round of interviews will be announced in a news release on Tuesday evening. The second round of interviews is currently scheduled for a Special City Council Meeting beginning at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, January 16th.

Additionally, the resumes and cover letters of all 31 original applicants for the City Manager position are posted on the City's website: www.sanantonio.gov/hr/CareerCenter#13706899-executive.

The District 10 Field Office will be closed on Monday, January 21st in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. I invite you all to join me for the Martin Luther King, Jr. March on January 21st. The march will begin at 10:00 a.m. at the MLK Academy and end at Pittman-Sullivan Park. For more information regarding the MLK Jr. March, click here.

The Northeast Neighborhood Alliance will hold its next meeting on January 28th, 7 p.m. at the Tool Yard (10303 Tool Yard). Briefings will include information on the San Antonio Emergency Management Program, organizing walking groups, Safe 2 Save (safe driving program), and an update from my office. Northeast Neighborhood Alliance members will also be voting on candidates to fill Alliance Board positions for Vice President, Recording Secretary, and Membership Secretary.

The District 10 Office would like to attend your next HOA meeting. We would like to discuss ongoing community initiatives and resources that are available throughout San Antonio, such as neighborhood programs, current projects and public safety programs. If you would like to have the District 10 team visit your next meeting or would like useful information to distribute to your community, please email your request to District10@sanantonio.gov. Please provide a date, time, and point of contact to set up District 10 attending your next HOA meeting. We look forward to hearing from you!

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

My Heart Is Not Blind 

Our very own Larry Johnson is featured at the Witte Museum in  My Heart Is Not Blind  On Blindness and Perception: Photographs and Audio Stories by Michael Nye. 

From the Witte Museum's website: "My Heart Is Not Blind features photographs and audio recordings of people with visual impairment that Nye interviewed over many years will reveal much about the nature of blindness and human resilience.  As Nye's subjects reveal, blindness creates individual life experiences as diverse as the people themselves.  My Heart is Not Blind  brings light into the dark misperceptions about blindness. Blindness does not make someone less intelligent, less capable, or less competent. Many people with visual impairments learn to adapt and frequently become more courageous and determined. Blindness and visual impairment are individual life experiences as diverse as the people themselves. There is not one common cause of visual impairment in Nye's subjects and there is not one common story of perception, struggle or adaptation amount them. Nye's path-breaking work, visitors to the Witte Museum will see and hear their stories firsthand and will come away knowing there are many different ways of seeing."  

The gallery will be on display through March 31st. Please visit if you have the opportunity.
Congratulations on Your Grand Opening!
