About Councilwoman Shirley Gonzales

Shirley Gonzales: Re-election Campaign for San Antonio City Council, District 5


I live in the heart of San Antonio, an area with rich historic value, scenic parks and trails, a thriving small business community and the kindest, most loving neighbors. I am fully committed to continue serving District 5 because I care deeply about this area and the people that live here. It's my family's home and my place of business. As a mother of two, a wife, a business owner, and a councilwoman, balance is key in my life. I work smart and efficiently to manage my time, resources and responsibilities both at home and at work. I have done the same for our city government and our district. I have been an active participant on the city council for several years now. I'm knowledgeable and experienced and fully vested in the success of our community. I am passionate about community involvement and how it makes a difference in our neighborhoods when people participate or get involved to become a part of the solution. 

I want to continue to serve our district, to improve our quality of life by ensuring that our infrastructure needs are met, create a safe environment, grow business and employment opportunities, protect or help develop programs that will benefit our seniors and students. I want to increase our level of participation as a community and work with you to solve our problems in the district.

Serving another term is only possible with your support and I hope you will give me the opportunity to serve again. 

Yours in Service,  

Councilwoman Shirley Gonzales
