Thank you to all the students learning Japanese at San Antonio ISD Tafolla Middle School who shared their studies with Ambassador Sasae and me today. I attended Tafolla when I was younger, and I’m proud that my middle school has such an impressive language program.
It’s an honor to welcome Ambassador Kenichiro Sasae to San Antonio today – our city and Japan share strong economic and cultural ties. I’m grateful for all the work he and the Embassy of Japan in the USA do to bolster U.S.-Japan relations. We began the Ambassador’s visit by having lunch with local business, government, and community leaders.
I spoke at the City of Leon Valley City Council meeting tonight to share the constituent services my office provides and give a congressional update. Thanks to Mayor Riley and all the council members for having me.
Earlier today I helped celebrate the grand opening of the George Gervin Retirement Apartments. This community provides an affordable place for elderly and disabled San Antonians to live. It was great to visit with folks and welcome them to their new home.
This afternoon I toured Northside ISD's Construction Careers Academy, where students receive a high-quality education and learn skills for careers in engineering, carpentry, architecture, and an array of other in-demand fields. I’m so proud of the young people I met today – they’re poised to achieve great things and make valuable contributions to San Antonio’s economy.
Thank you to City Councilman Cris Medina for hosting tonight’s town hall. It was great to join State Senator José Menéndez, State Rep. Justin Rodriguez, State Rep. Trey Martinez Fischer, and County Commissioner Paul Elizondo to share how our offices are serving folks in San Antonio.
Today I joined tens of thousands of San Antonians for the nation’s largest march celebrating the life and honoring the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. His message of unconditional love and peaceful conflict resolution remains so valuable as we continue to work for justice in our society.
This morning I joined Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity for breakfast in San Antonio to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and discuss ways we can continue his work of strengthening our communities.
I enjoyed meeting a group of Archer Fellows who stopped by my office today! These young Texans are doing great things in Washington this semester.
