SAN ANTONIO (Jan. 17, 2019) – Yesterday, the City Council proposed Erik Walsh as the lone finalist in the search for San Antonio’s next City Manager. Next, the candidate will take part in a question and answer session with the public before the City Council officially decides whether to move forward with Mr. Walsh as the new City Manager.
District 1 City Councilman Roberto Treviño provided the following statement:
“Over the last 24 years, Erik Walsh has demonstrated a clear understanding of what is needed to run the City’s day-to-day operations as well as an eagerness to collaborate with others. Erik’s vison for the future of San Antonio is informed by a diverse range of experiences and interactions with the public.
We have worked together on many issues over the last four years, including the successful rideshare negotiations with Uber and Lyft, and I have full confidence in his ability to provide the residents of San Antonio with the highest level of service going forward.
Thank you to everyone who applied for the position. There were many qualified candidates both locally and nationally. I especially would like to recognize María Villagómez for her work over the last 22 years. She helped to facilitate inclusion of many programs that have been beneficial to the people of San Antonio like the Under 1 Roof Program. I know she and the other applicants will continue on a positive trajectory, and I wish them the best.”
