San Antonio Martin Luther King, Jr. Honorary Commission Chair
Alan E. Warrick, II, City Council District 2
Alan Warrick II, a native of San Antonio, was baptized at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church and grew up in his parent’s home on Burleson Street in Dignowity Hill, and with his Grandparents on Chateau Street in Willowwood. His parents were one of the first families to restore a home in Dignowity Hill in the early 1980’s and his grandparents on both sides of the family, made up the bedrock of Eastside San Antonio. Their service and pride in their community instilled the deep love he has for District 2. That’s why he renovated and moved into his current home on Chateau, surrounded by family and friends; and demonstrating his commitment to the community and service. He has many connections to service in the community and politics in the District. His family has been continually active within District 2 for many years. His grandfather, Joseph A. Scott Jr., was a key business owner and political figure for over 40 years. He assisted candidates in many winning elections and also ran for the State Legislature in the 1970’s. His father, Alan E. Warrick, served as a Municipal Court Judge for the City of San Antonio from 1982 to 1989; and his mother, Dr. Cynthia Warrick, was elected and served on the Board of Trustees of the Alamo Colleges from 1986 through 1989. She also owned and operated a pharmacy in the East San Antonio Medical Center. He is proud of his family and the contributions that they made to the community and now it is time for Alan to take a larger role in the growth and future of District 2.
After graduating from Florida A&M University with a degree in architecture, he returned home to work under his grandfather in the company Mr. Scott started more than 30 years ago. In 2008, Alan became the CEO of World Technical Services, Inc. (WTS), WTS is a nonprofit organization that provides meaningful employment and training for individuals with disabilities throughout the state of Texas. Individuals with disabilities have much higher levels of unemployment than the non-disabled population; and WTS is a solution for so many people who need a genuine opportunity to succeed. Alan can relate this mission to the work that is needed to advocate and create more opportunities for employment and economic development for the residents of District 2.
While working and living in District 2, Alan became a committed leader within the community and assumed leadership roles quickly. Since 2008, he has been a member of the SAGE Planning & Design Committee where he has assisted in awarding over $700,000 in storefront grants to businesses in District 2, focusing on businesses located in the Promise Zone and Choice Neighborhood footprints. Alan has also, championed small, minority and women owned businesses as an active member of the Board of Directors for the Alamo City Chamber of Commerce since 2011, and is currently serving as the 2nd Vice Chairman of the Board. He helped raise over $50,000 for the Alamo Chamber’s golf tournament to further the chamber’s mission and the Chamber’s EPIC Scholars Program. In addition, He has been an active member of the Omega Psi Phi fraternity Inc., a group that actively serves the residents of District 2 through community adopt a spot programs, back to school supply drives and the provision of college scholarships for young people throughout the district and greater San Antonio. Education has also been a focus and a central emphasis of Alan’s community service; He has contributed to District 2 schools through volunteering and mentoring students at Sam Houston High School and Herman Hirsch Elementary School.
As the Councilmember for District 2, Alan will build on the work that Mayor Castro and Mayor Taylor have begun. He will work towards the SA 2020 goals for the district as well as continue the programs that promote Crime Prevention and Public Safety, Infrastructure Improvements, Eastside Revitalization, Economic Development, and Improved Educational Opportunities at every level.
Alan’s vision for District 2 is to enhance economic opportunities, where residents can live, work, and play within a 5 mile radius of their homes. He envisions a District 2 with entertainment and retail outlets, expanded employment opportunities and healthcare services, improved infrastructure and other characteristics of a healthy community. He also envisions a District 2 in which the unemployment rate is comparable to that of the best districts in San Antonio, and a District 2 where his daughter and every child of her generation will have high quality educational and career opportunities that will make them competitive to achieve their aspirations. Alan thanks you for taking the time to learn more about him and his goals for this position and he greatly appreciates all your support.
