UTSA, San Antonio Express-News to host a conversation with Mayor Ron Nirenberg, July 27

Mayor Ron Nirenberg will discuss his vision for San Antonio with UTSA professor Francine Romero.

(July 10, 2017) -- The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) and the San Antonio Express-News invite the community to A Conversation with Mayor Ron Nirenberg, a town hall meeting scheduled at 7 p.m., Thursday, July 27 in the Buena Vista Street Building Theater (BVB 1.326) at the UTSA Downtown Campus. Nirenberg will sit down with UTSA associate professor and associate dean of the UTSA College of Public Policy Francine Romero to discuss San Antonio’s strengths and share his vision for the city’s future.

Nirenberg won the mayoral election last month, defeating Ivy Taylor in a runoff and becoming the first person in 20 years to defeat an incumbent mayor of San Antonio who sought re-election. He was sworn in on June 21.

Prior to his election as mayor, Nirenberg served two terms as a member of the San Antonio City Council representing District 8, which includes the UTSA Main Campus.

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.

The July 27 town hall meeting is already at capacity for those who reserved a seat through advanced registration with the San Antonio Express-News. The event will be streamed live here. Free event parking for those who have already signed up to attend will be available in unmarked spaces of lot D-3, beneath IH-35.
