Your straps are showing: A sneak peek at how the city's PR folks keep it together

Posted By on Tue, Jan 29, 2008 at 12:00 AM

Why, it's worth asking, does a democratically elected government need spinmeisters?

It's a question the Current poses in light of this Friday's City of San Antonio Media Open House, where our government will introduce us to the new Public Information Team (aka the people who have to call other people before they call you back and relay a message, upping the chances that something will be lost in translation). Refreshments will be served, so rest assured it's a line item somewhere.

Meanwhile, courtesy of an open-records request regarding archeological finds at the Main Plaza construction site, here's what one PR head is up to when she's not interfacing with those bothersome journalists.

San Antonio Current works for you, and your support is essential.

Our small but mighty local team works tirelessly to bring you high-quality, uncensored news and cultural coverage of San Antonio and beyond.

Unlike many newspapers, ours is free – and we'd like to keep it that way, because we believe, now more than ever, everyone deserves access to accurate, independent coverage of their community.

Whether it's a one-time acknowledgement of this article or an ongoing pledge, your support helps keep San Antonio's true free press free.
