Clearly, there has been a misunderstanding about a statement that I made last night following the Chamber’s debate between Mayor Ron Nirenberg and Councilman Greg Brockhouse. When asked by a reporter why Councilman Brockhouse was not asked about allegations of domestic violence against him, I explained our focus was on business issues rather than the allegations against him. I, in no way, meant to imply that domestic violence is not a business issue, and I apologize for that.
As Mayor Nirenberg stated at the conclusion of the debate, the epidemic level of domestic violence is one of the most serious problems that San Antonio faces. This is a vitally important issue that needs to continue to be a priority for our entire community.
