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.
