Jonathan Delmer is a proven leader who will continue to champion causes for the hardworking families of our community. With over 30 years of experience as a successful businessman and fierce champion for District 10, Jonathan will:
In July 2015 Jonathan Delmer advocated for approximately 300 residents spanning seven different neighborhoods within District 10 that were charged an exorbitant amount for water usage. Jonathan assisted neighbors by directly contacting SAWS to bring this error to their attention. SAWS discovered that non of the meters had been read for over 2 months, which resulted in their computer system which produced drastically inflated bills. Jonathan worked hand-in-hand with SAWS officials to ensure meters were properly read and after six weeks, all charges were corrected. In October of 2015 SAWS sent 10 customer service agents to the Tobin Library to ensure all billing issues across District 10 had been resolved. Jonathan’s goal was to guarantee that SAWS was transparent and held accountable for services they provide to the residents of District 10.
The safety and well-being of citizens should continue to be a top priority to for the next Councilman. As Neighborhood Association President of Oak Park and Northwood, Jonathan worked with first responders, local leaders and law enforcement officials to help double patrols and improve overall safety in the community. As your Councilman, Jonathan will bring the same steadfast commitment and leadership to City Hall to lower crime rates, keep families safe, and help District 10 flourish.
When Over the next 20 years, San Antonio’s population will boom by over 1 milllion residents. Because of its excellent public schools and high quality of life, District 10 is known as a prime location to live, so we must be proactive in our preparation to inherit a minimum of 100,000 new residents. Jonathan will ensure our roads are properly maintained and remain a safe, efficient means of travel.
The current void of leadership in City Hall has negatively impacted our daily lives with the obtrusive, unwanted construction of Google Huts in Haskin Park. As Councilman, Jonathan will ensure huts will not be constructed in areas that affect our neighborhoods or take away green space from our children. Jonathan will fight in City Hall to remove the 1,600 square foot Hut in Haskin Park so residents can reclaim that area for the families of District 10. Jonathan will ensure we have the opportunity to weigh in, have their voices heard and convey any concerns and objections. As one of the top Ten cities in the United States, we need and want companies like Google, but on our terms, not theirs.
