I wish to extend my sincere thanks to everyone who took the time to weigh in on our important City Council Election.  City Council guides the direction Arlington will take.  I will take office on Novmeber 17th.  Your support by word of mouth, displaying a sign & through generous financial donations has been critical.  I can not tell you how much I appreciate each of you. I am your voice - do not hesistat to contact me. 

God Bless Arlington & our Country

Raul H. Gonzalez

Arlington City Council District 2

Councilman Elect 




What will I do to continue moving Arlington FORWARD

“Our city is enjoying remarkable progress.  I want to help keep the momentum going for the people of District 2 & all of Arlington’s citizens.”

"Much of South Arlington lies within Mansfield ISD where I have served on the School Board since 2010. “During my service the district has become one of the Best in Texas providing high-quality education while maintaining superb fiscal responsibility for our taxpayers."

I will work to:

Keep Arlington Safe & Secure through 

Strong Support for Our Outstanding Police & Firefighters

Support Healthy Neighborhoods - That Ensure Our Quality of Life

Work to Lower Arlington Property Taxes - Already Among the Lowest in the Region

 Continue Road & Street Improvements to Keep Arlington Moving

"I have developed strong working relationships with residents of District 2 & have sought collaboration between government entities for the benefit of residents. I look forward to serving them in the new role I am seeking as an Arlington City Council member.”

“I believe I offer experience in the ways the city supports public education that ensures a bright & promising future for all our children. My experience on an elected board will allow me to step into my new role quickly after Sheri Capehart’s retirement.”


I moved to Arlington after winning the “Top Carrier Scholarship” from my hometown newspaper, The El Paso Times & choose UTA for my education.  I learned hard work from my parents who grew up in the cities El Segundo Barrio.  They excelled & my Dad was one of the top 100 officials in the U.S. Postal Service when they retired in Waxahachie.  


A UTA contact lead me to my career as the Director of Administration for a Dallas Law Firm.  My wife Kerry & I made Arlington our home raising our 3 now young adult children in District 2.      

Surviving prostate cancer at 44 years old moved up my plans to enter elected service.  After years of coaching, being a band parent & volunteering, I was asked to run for the Mansfield ISD School Board which serves 14,000 Arlington students.  I have proudly served on the MISD Board since 2010. 


Arlington is one of the most diverse cities in the country.  Families from everywhere make their lives in the “American Dream City” just as I did.  It's time for a new path of service.  Allow me to represent you in Arlington District 2.  

I ask for your vote on November 3rd.
