SAN ANTONIO (Jan. 3, 2019) — Following Councilman William “Cruz” Shaw’s resignation, Mayor Nirenberg has appointed Councilwoman Sandoval to assume the role of chair of the City Council’s Public Safety Committee.
“As Chair of the Public Safety Committee, Councilman Shaw charted a path forward on a number of important initiatives,” Councilwoman Sandoval remarked. “In my conversations with community members, public safety is often cited as a top concern. I look forward to bringing community concerns forward to the Public Safety Committee and promoting safe neighborhoods.”
The Public Safety Committee is responsible for establishing policies and programs related to fire protection, emergency management, EMS service delivery, police and law enforcement and judicial procedures.
