CONTACT: Matteo Treviño, 210-323-2835


SAN ANTONIO (Jan. 31, 2019) — Following a vote to appoint Deputy City Manager Erik Walsh to the City Manager position, Councilwoman Sandoval issued the following remarks:


“A City Manager is tasked with a lot of responsibilities—chief among them the responsibility of implementing policies that City Council passes and ensuring the delivery of quality City services. After having worked with Mr. Walsh over the past year and a half, I am confident he will excel in the role.”


“The contract my colleagues and I approved today requires an annual performance review. The Council owes the City Manager a reoccurring and honest assessment, just like any other City employee receives, and the public deserves to know that their representatives are holding the Manager’s performance accountable to a high bar.”


Erik Walsh will assume the role of City Manager effective March 1, 2019.
