Meet Patrick Von Dohlen
Family man, Businessman and Community Advocate
My name is Patrick Von Dohlen and it would be my honor to serve the residents of the City of San Antonio, District 9, as Councilman.
For over 20 years, San Antonio has been my home, a place where my wife, Happy, and our nine children have built a wonderful life in District 9. We’ve dug deep roots in the Alamo city and we can’t imagine living anywhere else.
I grew up the son of a Texas State Representative and a devoted homemaker just down the road in Goliad. They taught me the meaning of public service and the importance of keeping my word. My work expanded as I went out on my own. I became a family man, a businessman and community advocate in just a few short years. Over time, I have been blessed to serve many worthwhile organizations in a variety of roles.
Now, I am committing myself to deepen my service to the good people of San Antonio and ask for your support as I seek my first elected office.
It’s not a decision I take lightly.
Local government impacts our lives everyday and, while there is much to celebrate about our city, I believe there is much more that can be done to make San Antonio better. From core services and small business advocacy to public safety and education, I have immersed myself in many of the same issues that I hope to fight for as a councilman.
In every instance, my objective has been to serve with honesty and integrity, and to affect outcomes that benefit the entire community.
Patrick Von Dohlen Values
As a husband and father, my family is everything to me. We live, work and play in San Antonio and I want what you want for our children and future generations: a vibrant quality of life and plenty of opportunities to succeed.
As a financial adviser, I believe that everything doesn’t have to be so complicated. My philosophy revolves around doing what is right, doing it as efficiently as possible and delivering real results to those I work for.
As a boy brought up on the Texas range, a fierce independence runs through my blood. I can’t be swayed from my principles and I do my best to serve my God, my family and my country on a daily basis.
