Oscar your number one, for District one!
Assist companies to achieve their export goals using the CASA San Antonio, EDF (Economic Development Foundation), International Trade Center at UTSA and the U.S. Commercial Service. The previous Free Trade Alliance merged with the EDF which currently assists with attracting FDI (Foreign Direct Investment). Texas is the number 1 exporting state in the nation; our city should be able to represent that.
REMEMBER THE ALAMO
Alamo and Tourism
Ensure the Alamo Master Plan is carried correctly and that the Alamo stays as original as possible with minimal to zero unnecessary ancillary costs. San Antonio’s tourism industry surpasses 15 billion dollars of economic impact to our city. We have to make sure that we do not lose the charm that attracts tourists to our home.
You will have your return in investment
I am in favor of Free Trade and the promotion of exports to increase our GDP (Growth Domestic Product) and overall economic growth for our city. I will ensure that our tax dollars are spent wisely and search for our best ROI (Return on Investment) option when it comes to our city’s budget.
