50 word reason for becoming a candidate in this election:

1)Could the City’s recent ethics reforms be better enforced, especially in termsof conflicts of interest?
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.

I believe the current regulations are adequate.
