"We must tell this story where it began and ensure a legacy that we can all appreciate. San Antonio is Awesome, especially for its history which is weaved into the fabric for all of us to enjoy."- Roberto C. Treviño, The Rivard Report, December 17th, 2013.
What We've Done
During my tenure as District 1 Councilman, we've united as a multidimensional team, our stories, insights, and talents acting together towards proactive, sustainable community change.
Policy is only as valuable as its execution.
I am dedicated to the privilege of serving our community. Here are a few examples of our accomplishments so far:
Extensive community outreach, including Roberto’s attendance of 34 neighborhood association meetings, three of which he organized.
Advocated Spanish interpretation services for residents attending City Council, Board, and Commission meetings.
What We Can Do
In a city of diverse industry and culture, we must continue as fellow stakeholders to propel community growth while preserving aspects of our history that bolster San Antonio's potential for world-class success.
What Matters to Me
I have been an active resident of San Antonio for almost twenty years, serving on a number of boards and committees prior to my time in city hall. As District 1's City Councilman, I pave the path for change through community empowerment.
I trust my neighbors to provide holistic feedback on projects and policies with extensive reach and broad implications. San Antonio, with its commercial resources and emerging businesses, holds great promise for further growth.
By incorporating the legacy of our past into future initiatives, we nurture our city's potential and enable it to blossom as a dignified home for all. Through openness, invention, and community involvement, I commit to serving a city where all residents know they are valuable, respected stakeholders.Our Focus
