During his time on City Council, Nirenberg was focused on San Antonio’s transportation infrastructure, sustainability, new technology, job skill training and the creation of new jobs.
Since taking office, Nirenberg and City Council have discussed capital improvements and the city budget for the 2018 fiscal year, and approved a resolution to combat climate change.
