On that note, he remains critical of the streetcar project, saying the decision-making wasn’t conducted with transparency and he isn’t totally sold on its necessity. “We have a dramatic need for transportation here,” he says. “We should focus on those basics before we invest in anything else. “Would I love to ride a streetcar downtown? Absolutely. But not at the expense of community needs.”

Nirenberg, who says he’s cautious about development, heavily supports placing the Edwards Aquifer Protection Initiative on the ballot again in 2015. The plan protects the region’s main source of drinking water by acquiring and preserving land across the recharge zone, “We need to be vigilant about what the Texas Legislature and other communities are doing to threaten the Aquifer,” he told the Current.

As for education, he’s backing stringent accountability standards and reporting metrics for PRE-K 4 SA and will request monthly or bi-monthly public updates on those results. “It can be a real game changer for San Antonio,” says Nirenberg about the taxpayer-funded education project. “But if it fails, it could be a terrible ‘I told you so moment.’ I believe it’s going to work, but we need all hands on deck.”
