Dear Friend:

Thanks to you, I am proud to report that there has never been a more economically prosperous time for Precinct 4 than right now. So let’s celebrate! Join me for my birthday celebration, Wednesday, September 20, 2017 at the new Tobin Center for the Performing Arts Riverwalk Patio, 100 Auditorium Circle, from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.

We will have some major announcements about catalytic projects coming to Bexar County. You will be able to see the backdrop of the Arts Residence & Thompson Hotel, which will be the nicest downtown residence and hotel ever built. This project will create more than 1300 jobs for Bexar County and bring new residents who will locate their businesses in Bexar County.
This party is also a fundraiser and I want to ask for your financial support. There are no campaign finance limits for County Commissioners. We have almost as many voters to communicate to as a candidate for mayor, so we would be honored if you will help us at the $5000, $2500, $1000, $500, $100 or any level you can give.

With the help of the Commissioner’s Court, City Council, and you, we have moved projects forward that will shape families in Bexar County for generations including:


  • Recruiting and funding a new $12 million dollar Veterans Transition Center in partnership with the Army and other armed forces at the corner of Walters and IH-35.
  • Passing by nearly 70 percent the City’s first housing bond. I’m still working to get the county to do its part to combat our affordable housing crisis, which will build wealth and create jobs among our people.
  • Laying the groundwork and helping to fund a $28 million dollar office building for ChildSafe, in Eastwood Village, where I was born, at the corner of IH-10 and E. Houston.
  • Leading the conversation about how to keep Bexar County competitive with a big city lifestyle desired by millennial workers in the information technology economy.
  • Creating curriculum for our schools to train teachers and students in IT, robotics, advanced manufacturing, and skilled trade jobs.
  • Recruiting Methodist Healthcare Ministries to take over the old Southeast Baptist Hospital and build more than $10 million dollars in new facilities.
  • Providing $1.5 million for the new Bexar County Clinical Training Center for the University of the Incarnate Word School of Osteopathic Medicine.
  • Supporting creative new tax incentives for road infrastructure in northeastBexar County like the new Converse Moving forward TIRZ zone.
  • Pushing and funding St. Philip’s College first residential community for affordable student housing through the Inner-city TIRZ.
  • Saving the negotiations that provided $6.8 million dollars for the restoration of the old Hot Wells Resort, creating Bexar County’s first cultural and historical park. This also leads the way for new housing, restaurants, and amenities on the southeast side.
  • Becoming the first African-American to serve as grand marshal of the Cesar Chavez March, the first in the nation, bringing our community closer together.
  • Keeping a positive relationship with law enforcement and our community by securing wage increases for our hardworking Bexar County Sheriff’s Deputieswithout mudslinging-the largest wage increase of any law enforcement contract last year in the state of Texas.

Every day I wake up energized to serve the people from my hometown. Thanks to yourfinancial support, I am able to renew my commitment to keeping Bexar County one of the leading places in the world for growth and prosperity in the information technology economy. See you at the party!

Yours for positive change,

Tommy Calvert, Jr.
Commissioner, Bexar County, Precinct 4
