LOOP's Guide to the May Elections
Moving to San Antonio has been one of the best decisions of my life. I adore everything about this city: the food, the weather, the Spurs, the shopping and most importantly, the people. Settling in was easy because I joined LOOP - the Leadership Organization of Professionals. We're a young professionals group dedicated to engaging with local leaders and policies, leading young professionals to get educated and participate in the process and ultimately transform our city into an even better one. Thanks to LOOP, I've been afforded with many opportunities, from volunteering with the American Heart Association to being appointed to serve on the SA Tomorrow's Transportation Planning Working Group. Of course, LOOP has also introduced me to lifelong friends, people I absolutely adore and who have transformed San Antonio from a cool place to live to a home.
Tonight, the committee I Co-Chair for LOOP hosted an election themed event at Ranger Creek Brewery & Distillery. Our topics covered the municipal issues on the May ballot. People don't realize that your vote matters most at the local level. Councilman Ron Nirenberg addressed the group on Propositions 1 & 2. Dr. Francine Romero gave us an in depth look at the charter review process and associated public involvement. And finally, Councilman Mike Gallagher and community activist Greg Brockhouse gave us a lively debate on Charter Amendment 2, which would provide our Mayor and Council with a reasonable salary structure.
It was an honor to work with a fabulous committee to put on an event to a standing room only crowd!
