As a Floresville resident born and raised, I moved back to raise my own family here; it is my dream to see Floresville reach its full potential as a thriving, well-developed, family-friendly city that can be enjoyed by residents new and old for generations to come.

In the three years since initiating an insolvency plan, Floresville made great strides in regaining financial stability. Unfortunately, after decades of aging, along with poor maintenance, our city requires a lot of work to be able to provide quality services to its residents. With a new wastewater treatment facility now under construction, sewer line upgrades on the way, road projects, and a new sports park, our debt continues to grow and threaten our stability.

Our city has facilities that have served the community for generations and there is rich history here that many are proud of and wish to preserve. As a councilman, I will vote to move projects forward which help provide safe and reliable services by not only expanding and improving where necessary, but -- more importantly -- maintaining what we have and ensuring non-critical projects undergo thorough due diligence.

With that, I humbly ask for your vote in our upcoming election Nov. 8.

The Wilson County News will provide a Candidates Forum in the print edition Oct. 26. In an effort to provide voters with information earlier, the Wilson County News is publishing candidate information as it is received.
