“I appreciate the work of the Alamo Citizens Advisory Committee and the Alamo Executive Committee over the last four years, and I am glad the Alamo Master Plan was enthusiastically supported by both committees. Most importantly, residents in San Antonio and across Texas support this plan because it will bring reverence and tell the complete history of one of the most significant sites in world.
