The Great Side of the Digital Divide

Commissioner Tommy Adkisson

In a time where the world seems to be headed towards technology and cyberspace, Precinct 4 has landed on the great side of the digital divide.  We are now on the Internet and accessible to every constituent in all possible ways. 

For the last three years, Precinct 4 constituents were able to contact the office and get answers by phone or mail.  Now, you can link on to our website and find answers to frequently asked questions, phone numbers, physical addresses, and email addresses to different Elected Officials Offices or Departments of the County.  And find out interesting historical facts about Bexar County.

Different pages on my site will provide information to citizens different interests.  A special project my office is working on is the historical aspect of the website.  In the future, you will be able to use our page as a source for useful historical data.  We are also currently working on a Special Interest and Special Presentations page.  On such, you will be able to read about my interest and our future with Air Quality, Commute Solutions, and Resource Recovery.  You will also find presentations in which I sponsored to come before Commissioners Court, such as on July 10th, 2001, when I asked John Gaines, Director of the Bexar Appraisal District, to inform the court and citizens how the Bexar Appraisal District reached its appraisal ratings for 2001 and to explain why the appraisals have gone up.

In an effort to reach all constituents of Precinct 4, I decided to open my Online Office.  This office will be open 24 hours a day and accessible to everyone.  You can email, my staff, or myself and expect a quick reply.  I encourage all to visit this "office" located at http://www.bexar.org/commct/cmpct4/pct4.htm
