Untrue Resident:

Thank you for you kind words and I sincerely appreciate your attempt to change the dialog to a discussion of the issues. I am more than willing to discuss my position on any of the issues facing the City of Floresville and it’s elected officials with you or anyone. Please feel free to call on me any time.

There are numerous critical issues facing our City. The decisions made by the new administration after November 6th will impact it’s citizens for the next 30 to 50 years. The reality is that whoever is elected Mayor will have little to no impact on the decisions of this new City Council.

The City of Floresville is a home-ruled city and the City Charter defines the roles and responsibilities of the Mayor and City Council. All of the authority and responsibility is provided to the City Council. The Mayor is only the ceremonial head of the City. His or her responsibilities are limited to presiding at meetings, kissing babies, riding in parades, etc., and is only granted the ability to vote in the event of a tie. All decisions are made by a majority vote of the City Council.

Lets take at look at the Council.

Councilwoman Castillo and Councilman Gomez have always voted as the current Mayor has advised them to vote, without question. (neither are subject to re-election this term)

Councilman Guerrero and Councilman Morones have stood up and asked questions, listened to the citizens that elected them, and have been unwilling to roll with the tide as the current Mayor would have them vote (Councilman Guerrero is not subject to re-election this term and Councilman Morones is unopposed).

This leaves a council of 2-2.

Now we address the pivotal seat of Councilman, Place 1, currently held by Jesse Chris Flores. This is the office that I am seeking.

The re-election of Jesse Chris Flores will insure that Daniel M Tejada will continue to control the City Council and the future of the City of Floresville. Councilman Flores, when he is able to attend meetings, always votes as advised by the current Mayor. The re-election of Jesse Chris Flores will do nothing less than give Daniel M Tejada a virtual additional term and continued control over the financial assets of the citizens of the City of Floresville regardless of who is elected to the office of Mayor.

The bus is at the edge of the cliff. This election will decide if the bus is driven over the edge or if it takes a new direction. I offer common sense and conservative direction and I believe that the Citizens of our City want this needed change.
