Candidates' Forum: Christina Jarzombek
Candidate for: MAYOR OF FLORESVILLE
I have lived in Floresville for more than seven years with my husband, John Jarzombek. Many people may fondly remember his Uncle Edward “Junior” Jarzombek of J&B Drilling.
I earned my airframe and power plant license in 1993 and graduated from St. Philip’s College in San Antonio in 1997. I have been a nurse for 15 years and currently serve as a hospice nurse for New Century Hospice.
I am a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church and have recently joined the Wilson County Republican Women.
As a property owner and taxpayer in Floresville, my main concern is the current lack of focus on the city’s debt load and what that will mean for all the citizens and taxpayers going forward. If elected, I plan to serve as the first-ever mayor to strictly follow the city charter to help our city move forward and be all that it can be.
According to the city charter, approved by the citizens of Floresville in 2009, the duties of the mayor are as follows: Section III, 3.01(b) The Mayor shall conduct City Council meetings following the posted agenda provided by the city secretary. The mayor shall be recognized as the head of the city government for all ceremonial purposes and by the governor for purpose of military law, but shall have no regular administrative duties. The mayor shall be entitled to vote on all matters under consideration by the City Council, only to break a tie vote.
I am a health-care worker with strong moral and ethical values as well as a deep and abiding love and concern for our community. I want to be your charter mayor.
