Ron Nirenberg was first elected to San Antonio's City Council, representing District 8, on June 15, 2013. He is an experienced, independent voice for San Antonio families and believes in the values of fiscal responsibility, accountability, and transparency in government.
During his tenure, Councilman Nirenberg has focused on solutions to San Antonio’s deepest challenges, which include improving transportation infrastructure, securing our long term water supply, and creating jobs.
His vision is for San Antonio to become a premiere 21st Century American City, where every hard-working family can find an affordable and high quality place to live, where every child has an opportunity to be educated and establish a career, and where we celebrate our international roots and our intercultural future.
A strong advocate for balanced growth, Councilman Nirenberg serves as board member of the Alamo Area Metropolitan Planning Organization, Chairman of the City’s Quality of Life Committee, and Chairman of the City Council Comprehensive Planning Committee, where he has led the city’s efforts to establish a long term, citizen-directed strategy for harnessing rapid growth in the region. He created the District 8 Community Academy in 2013, which was recognized by the U.S. House of Representatives as a model civic engagement initiative.
A graduate of Trinity University (B.A.) and the University of Pennsylvania (M.A.), Councilman Nirenberg and his wife Erika Prosper, a respected business and community leader, are proud parents of their son Jonah.
