SAN ANTONIO (Apr. 11, 2019) – Today, Councilman Greg Brockhouse gave notice of his intent to motion to amend the airport contract previously approved by City Council that removed Chick-fil-A at the next available council meeting on April 18.

 

“Every day the Chick-fil-A removal decision is allowed to stand hurts our reputation nationwide as a welcoming and inclusive city. It sends a message we are anti-faith and we cannot stand by without speaking the truth and standing up for our principles. As a result, today I gave notice at our City Council meeting that I will move to amend the vote and call for a new vote to bring Chick-fil-A back to the airport. This motion to reconsider will be debated at our next Council meeting on April 18. If passed and added to the agenda, a vote to reinstate Chick-fil-A may occur on May 2. The removal of Chick-fil-A has embarrassed San Antonio. It does not reflect who we are as a community. We have a chance to correct this mistake by reinstating Chick-fil-A and sending a message that we are open for all, open for faith and open for business.”
