I have been and will continue to be your Helotes City Council and I understand the challenges our community and residents experience.  For the most part, we as a council have successfully accomplished many goals and addressed many concerns yet some issues remain unresolved.

I will continue to do what it takes to be the best I can be to benefit the citizens of Helotes.  I've worked diligently to be a Councilman who is fair and impartial.  I have and will continue to stand up for what is right and just for the citizens of Helotes.  As I swore under oath, I will continue to preserve, protect the Constitution and the laws of the United States and of Texas to the best of my ability.
