Councilman Ron Nirenburg was gracious enough to reach out and visit our Mosque first, The Muslim Children Education and Civic Center, last Friday February 24th. He is also planning a workshop where he will teach us about the various smaller elected positions with the City and County.
Chairman of the Bexar County Democratic Party Manuel Medina is scheduled to come speak after Jummah this coming Friday March 3rd.
I am currently working with Mayor Ivy Taylor's Chief of Staff to schedule a visit from her.
As a community, no one running for public office should ignore the Muslim Community of San Antonio. It is our job to make our presence known, and their job reach out. For far too long we have remained silent and allowed the narrative to form without our input. That stops now.
I will refrain from making an endorsement, but I wish all the candidates good luck.
