STATEMENT FROM PAULA GOLD-WILLIAMS, PRESIDENT & CEO OF CPS ENERGY, REGARDING THE PASSING OF LILA COCKRELL

“It is with deep sadness that our community at large, we at CPS Energy, and I personally, mourn the loss of a true San Antonio icon and pioneer, Mayor Lila Cockrell. Her impact continues to be felt on our lives today and is a testament of the benefits of great intentions, high intelligence, and consistent engagement. I was honored to have Lila as an “on-the-spot” mentor and friend. In fact, she was a friend to everyone. For these and many other reasons, I cherished every opportunity I had to listen to and speak with her. I absolutely honor her role in paving the way for female leaders like me in our community. She was a force to be reckoned with, inside and outside our board room, as she fought for San Antonio’s inherent value and for our future. Even though I already miss her dearly, I will always remember her for her trusted guidance, mentorship, and sweetly wicked sense of humor.”

Lila Cockrell served on the CPS Energy Board of Trustees as a member (1981-1989) as Ex-Officio Trustee (1975- 1981, 1989-1991) and as Chair (1988-1989.)
