I want to express my gratitude to the residents of District 2 who have placed their trust in me to serve as their City Council representative. I am honored and proud to serve my District 2 residents and neighbors.
DISTRICT 2, MY HOME
Born and raised on the east side of San Antonio, I am proud to live, work, and dream in District 2. I was raised by a strong, God-fearing mother, and with her help, I was fortunate as a single mother to raise four children in the district I call my home. I am a product of SAISD schools - Gates Elementary, Martin Luther King, Jr Middle, and Sam Houston High.
While furthering my education at the University of Texas at Austin, I enlisted in the United States Army where I served my country proudly and received an honorable discharge in 1997. Rooted in the heart of the district, I launched my business in 2006 and it continues to this day.
SMALL BUSINESS, SOCIAL JUSTICE, DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, YOUTH LEADERSHIP, EQUITY ADVOCATE
District 2 is the heart of San Antonio and fills the city with vibrant arts and entertainment such as the Witte Museum, Alamodome, Stock Show and Rodeo, and the San Antonio Spurs. District 2 is rising to the challenges facing underserved areas such as aging public infrastructure and economic segregation, advocating for the provision of workforce development services, and enabling business creation and support for existing businesses. District 2 works together to revitalize neighborhoods as well as historic and cultural places, with the goal of helping to leverage the people of District 2.
As a resident, mother, and representative of City Council District 2, I am humbled to utilize my experience in advocating for equity within challenged platforms. We continue to focus on safe and clean streets, neighborhoods, schools, and establishments to showcase our great and unique district. I am a dedicated advocate for a district with thriving living and working environments by using equitable investments I strongly believe will continue our work in transforming District 2. I trust “Equity” is needed to close the gaps of poverty and economic segregation. Together, we can continue to create community cohesiveness and focus on education with the goal of developing a safe and thriving urban environment. I believe through social justice changes, small business investment, youth leadership and entrepreneur training, we can launch our District 2 into prosperity for your city, the City of San Antonio.
