District 4 City Councilman Rey Saldaña will soon officially announce his bid for re-election to city council.
The 26 year old is finishing his freshman term on the council, having worked toward increased police presence, supported the city’s Pre-K 4 SA measure and pushed for the 500-acre renovation of a former landfill -- now the Pearsall Park -- in southwest San Antonio.
City leaders, area chamber presidents and Walmart officials officially broke ground at the site of a new store to be built on the city’s south side. The 180,000 foot store will be located at I-35 and Palo Alto Road, where Palo Alto meets Patron Street.
Daniel Morales with Walmart said opening stores in communities often sparks economic growth.
San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro and District 4 Councilman Rey Saldaña are going the distance for a program they say is going to change the educational trajectory of the city.
Starting from Lions Field Park on Broadway, children from the George Gervin Academy helped the two start the run, where 5,700 of their steps represent the number of San Antonio’s four year olds that are not currently served by a quality, full-day pre-kindergarten program.
Nearly 2,300 police officers patrol the streets of San Antonio, and Councilman Rey Saldaña said the issues are about the same as other cities of a similar size, but here in the Alamo City, the policing is different.
