Life long resident of San Antonio, Texas. Graduate of St.Phillips College NursingProgram, Graduate of Texas A&M Ext. Electronic Engineering, and Human RightsActivist.

50 word reason for becoming a candidate in this election:
To represent the people within District 2, no matter their economic status, race or religion. To usher in a true open door policy for all the residents of District 2. I believe Ihave the capability for being a good public servant.

Yes, of course.
2)What’s your opinion on encouraging economic development and civicprogramming via public/private partnerships, especially where public land,such as Hemisfair Park, is concerned?
I believe public should remain public. The ordinary citizen should be able toenjoy public land and private entities should not exploit and prohibit that.
3)Should the city establish an independent police monitor to better oversee theSan Antonio Police Department? Why or why not?
Yes, and independent monitor is good because the police cannot monitor the police without being bias.

Yes and the reason is equality and equal opportunity.

I am an animal lover but I have no answer at this point.
9)What would you do to address the high vacancy rate in downtown buildings?
Make those spaces affordable in order to maintain them occupied.
10)Is the City’s million-dollar incentive to create a downtown grocery storeappropriate? Why or why not? Is there a better way to bring a grocery storedowntown?
 No, because there are enough grocery stores around the downtown area alongwith convenient stores in the downtown area.

By respecting the integrity of historical communities and providing economicdevelopment in economically challenged areas.
