SAN ANTONIO (Dec. 19, 2017) — Mayor Ron Nirenberg issued the following statement in response to the passing of former State Rep. Ruth Jones McClendon:    

“Ruth Jones McClendon was a consensus builder, who used her considerable political skills to help the needy.

“As a Democrat in a Republican-controlled Legislature, McClendon managed to land on the House Appropriations Committee under two Republican speakers. She was a strong voice for San Antonio and her district.

“She wielded power gently but effectively. McClendon was a statewide force on transportation while also working to address the needs of the state’s poorest citizens.

“San Antonio is a better city because of her work as a member of City Council and in the Texas House. She will be greatly missed.”
