My Priorities for District 9 When I Am Elected:

Fiscal Responsibility​

It is imperative that the city –

A. Avoid accumulating unnecessary debt
B. Avoid spending more revenue than it receives from taxpayers
C. Create additional revenue streams without new government mandates or taxes
D. Work toward property owner tax relief to assist people with escalating property values
E. Use this time of growth to eliminate the over $5.2B of city debt placed on the backs of taxpayers

Small Business Development

I want to help improve the quality of life in District 9 by aiding small business development.  As a councilman, I will work to create a mutually beneficial environment for businesses that want to open and grow in our district and will work to retain their involvement in our community.

Financial Vitals Chart of the City of San Antonio:

I want to help improve the quality of life in District 9 by aiding small business development.  As a councilman, I will work to create a mutually beneficial environment for businesses that want to open and grow in our district and will work to retain their involvement in our community.

Social Responsibility​​

Issues typically reserved for state or national debate are being voted on in San Antonio including but not limited to “climate change,” gun control, government mandates and immigration.

We need to approach these topics with prudence and recognize that the proper authorities on these respective issues include the US and Texas Constitutions and the City Charter. We must pursue common sense solutions for the individual and common good as well as for long-term domestic prosperity and should avoid unplanned, big-ticket price tags and government intrusion in citizens’ lives.

Consequently, I believe we need to work with faith-based community organizations to more effectively reach and help our senior citizens and others in need instead of growing the local government to take on this important social work. There are thousands of people in our city who are willing and more able then the local government to help those in need.

The Voice of Common Sense

Infrastructure​

Residents of District 9 continue to be financial donors to the city and yet reap a disproportionately negative amount of the benefits. We need our taxpayer funds to improve infrastructure in our district — smooth roads, traffic and congestion solutions and school zone safety — in order to improve the daily lives of residents. 

Public Safety

The response times for police and emergency personnel remain far from adequate in District 9. We need a police and fire sub station in the area to alleviate crime on the north side to include ending property theft.
