for city council district 1

Local government is capable of directly impacting our lives in so many ways. District 1 is diverse in interests, needs, and economic levels. As your council member, I’ll bring together stakeholders from across the district and work with you to develop a consensus building process. Once we reach consensus, I’ll make sure that our government honors your collective input. 

The ability for a community to inform their government in providing solutions is even more necessary when we’re not able to meet physically. COVID has showed us that there are other ways to meet and collaborate, and these new forms offer increased access to populations that had been left out of conversations. Digital communication is not a substitute for in person citizen participation but can supplement it when used correctly.

I’m ready to roll up my sleeves and work to institute a series of reforms at City Hall to ensure that your voice is heard and your community’s priorities are addressed. We are starting this campaign with a listening tour to hear directly from District 1 residents about what is important to you.

Feel free to reach out to me at [email protected] to set up a time to share your ideas and concerns.


 Mario’s Top Priorities

Economic Recovery and Development

Throughout my listening tour, you have informed me that your vision for an economic recovery begins with caring for our existing citizens and independently owned small and micro businesses. We need to support the people who have been with us all along. When federal CARES Act funds become available, the city should make sure that everyone benefits, and that we don’t add extra hurdles to access the funds.

A Healthy Community

More than ever, I am hearing from you that public health is a priority.  

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, investments in public health in San Antonio were lacking. We have the business model backwards: we wait until people get really sick, and then give them an ambulance ride to the emergency room. It’s the most expensive form of healthcare in the world. Proactively investing in our community’s health helps people stay healthier and could save money on your county hospital district property tax bill.

Public Safety

I agree with District 1 residents that everyone deserves to feel safe in their community – safe for your kids to walk to school, safe to walk in your neighborhood and parks after dark, and safe in your home. I will support your vision for a holistic approach to safety and crime reduction, an approach that includes not just handcuffs and jail cells, but also investing in crime prevention and implementing community-led restorative justice programs.
