SAN ANTONIO (May 12, 2022) — Today, City Council voted on the authorization of a Collective Bargaining Agreement with the San Antonio Police Officer's Association. The following is Councilman Bravo's statement on his vote:
When offered to serve in this office, I made three very specific commitments to our community on what reforms must be achieved in order to support a new police contract. This contract completely meets one of those commitments but only halfway meets the other two.
Furthermore, the District 1 office committed to our constituents that we would be your voice at City Hall. You spoke, and we heard you. The District 1 office received countless emails and phone calls asking us to not support this contract. And out of 123,169 residents who we represent, not one sent a letter, email, or made a phone call to our office asking us to support this contract.

Today we honored our commitments by voting no on this contract proposal.
Yesterday the District 1 office met with a constituent who had a bullet crash through her house last weekend. Like too many of our constituents, she told us that gunshots are a regular occurrence in her neighborhood. And she wants to call the police to catch the shooters, but she is also scared to call the police because of how she or her neighbors might be treated.
What we were seeking to do today is not just create a contract with our police employees, but also improve the relationship between law enforcement and the rest of our community. We want to recognize that this contract moves in that direction, but it falls short of where we need to be to repair broken relationships and build the trust that our community needs so that everyone feels safe.
The District 1 office recognizes that this contract passed today, and we look forward to working closely with our police officers in making our city as safe as possible. We also look forward to working with all council colleagues here on our dais in finding other ways to holistically address public safety and reduce crime.
