South San Chamber throws support behind municipal bond program

Leaders aim to bring jobs, housing, business to South Side


SAN ANTONIO – The South San Antonio Chamber of Commerce showed its support for the 2017-2022 municipal bond program by hosting a luncheon with City Manager Sheryl Sculley to announce proposed investments and opportunities that are coming to the South Side.

Leaders on the city's South Side said there is a new energy in their area of the city, and they are hoping to bring more job opportunities, housing opportunities and business recruitment.

"We're excited to see the $82 million that's earmarked for the South Side," Chamber president and CEO Al Arreola said. "It's a lot of necessary investments that our aging infrastructure is in need of. We're looking forward to continued growth from the regional centers of Port San Antonio, Brooks City Base and Texas A&M San Antonio."

"Keeping that buzz going is what the South Side deserves," Brooks City Base president and CEO Leo Gomez said. "It's actually what the whole city deserves, and the South Side is proud to be a part (of it) and really looking forward and building toward a good future."

Early voting for the May 6 city elections runs April 24 through May 2. Election Day is May 6.
