Our hearts are heavy today as we mourn the loss of the Honorable Ruth Jones McClendon. District 2, the City of San Antonio, and the State of Texas have lost a truly dynamic, brilliant, and selfless public servant. The Honorable Ruth Jones McClendon spent most of her life fighting for our most vulnerable citizens as a champion for our children, our seniors, and everyone in between.
Although our hearts are heavy, we know that Mrs. McClendon’s legacy will live on forever. Through her life in public service, she touched so many lives and worked tirelessly to uplift the voices of those who far too often have felt voiceless.
Her family and friends are in our prayers during this difficult time. My wife Michelle and I extend our deepest condolences.
