SAN ANTONIO (Nov. 29, 2018) – The following is a statement from Councilman Rey Saldaña regarding the retirement announcement of City Manager Sheryl Sculley:
“Sheryl Sculley’s announcement comes after a successful career of working under the hood of San Antonio’s major operations for 13 years.
As any athlete knows, one day you’ll throw your last pitch or make your last pass, the question will be if your team will be stronger in your absence. Having witnessed the team Sheryl has put together, I’m confident that we will be a stronger city because of what she has built.
Her legacy is not only in the building of fire stations, streets, parks, and Pre-K centers, but in the bullpen of A- plus players she has trained to be ready to pick up where she left off. She was the right person at the right time, and San Antonio owes her a big thank you.
From filling potholes to creating nationally recognized Pre-K centers, her leadership guided the team that has made it possible. We are hiring more police officers, graduating more fire fighter cadets, building more streets, increasing pay for city employees, and enhancing our parks/library system since she arrived in 2005 – all without increasing taxes.
San Antonio is in a better place because of her professionalism, experience, and management. She retires as a model of professional leadership that women and men can look up to.”
