This week, the city of San Antonio will pass our 2019 budget. All City Council members have been attending numerous budget work sessions to ensure we are securing what our respective districts need most. As you may remember, last year was the first time ever that we had an equitable budget. Instead of all 10 districts getting the same amount of funding, funding was allocated based on need.
Community leaders have fought for equity for years. I'm proud to say that there are some phenomenal things in store for our district. From street improvements to program investments, we aren’t getting the short end of the stick by any means. I look forward to sharing our budget by the numbers next week after we officially pass it. I’m sure it will make you proud.
Yours in Service,
Councilman William “Cruz” Shaw
