RAUL'S PLATFORM

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 was a School Board Trustee for over 10 years. “During my service the district became one of the Best in Texas providing high-quality education while maintaining superb fiscal responsibility for our taxpayers."

I will continue to work:

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 continuing to serve as the District 2 Representative on the Arlington City Council.”

ABOUT RAUL

I choose UTA and moved to Arlington after winning the “Top Carrier Scholarship” from my hometown newspaper,

The El Paso Times.  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  proudly served on the Mansfield ISD Board

for over 10 years. MISD serves over 14,000 Arlington students.  

 

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.  I have worked hard since I was elected to City Council in November 2020

and look forward to continuing my service for District 2 and all of Arlington's residents.  

Election Day is Saturday May 4, 2024.
