He blazed a path for those who came behind him, and his work made our community proud. His passing is a great loss to journalism. https://bit.ly/2uzv4iX

            [message] => I am so excited to see the rollout of the Alamo Promise initiative. Currently, far too many young people in Bexar County are denied a college education because they are unable to afford the cost of tuition. I strongly believe economic status should not determine educational access and opportunity.

Enter Alamo Promise, a transformational program that will allow Bexar County high school students to work toward a certificate or two-year degree tuition-free at any of The Alamo Colleges District campuses. This bold initiative will positively impact the San Antonio community for decades to come. 

I am both proud of my friend Chancellor Mike Flores for his work on this program and thrilled to see that my alma mater Holmes High School will be included in the Phase I rollout.

            [message] => Last week, I was disappointed to learn that Governor Abbott will no longer allow refugees to resettle in Texas. That decision, which has been temporarily halted by the courts, is a stain on the image of our great state. 

Despite that, I was heartened to read about people in our community who are working day and night to help migrant families adjust to life in our state. A great example is the Interfaith Welcome Coalition and its network of volunteers, who offer humanitarian aid to immigrant families released from local detention centers. 

San Antonio is a welcoming city and one of the most diverse places in the country. Those fleeing from persecution will always be welcome here. I stand with groups like the IWC who are living out their values through service to others. They make our city a better place.
