So why Carlos for City Council?

With Carlos’s extensive domestic, and international business insight, along with his experience living and working in multiple cities and states, Carlos brings the knowledge and passion to help further the undeniable prosperity and future of Grapevine.

A native Texan, born and raised in San Antonio, Carlos and his wife Laura, chose to make Grapevine their home because of their feeling of security, a sense of community, and the positive attention to quality of life. It is these three primary areas Carlos will defend and advocate.

Through Carlos’s 35+ years’ experience in the corporate environment, he has developed a credulous, and inclusive leadership approach. He chooses service over self-interest! A published author on leadership theories, Carlos champions the alternative to leadership, which is stewardship – specifically when serving the public!
Feeling of security: Through stewardship, Carlos believes he can collaboratively and significantly impact our community by continuing to evangelize our core basic needs - safety and security! His partnership with first responders – our fire department, police force, police volunteers, and our neighborhood watch program will remain a priority.

Sense of Community: Carlos acknowledges that others’ needs, values, and opinions matter and will embrace a balanced voice for the majority, and minority. He will advocate our sense of belonging to further relationships within our own neighborhoods, our city government, community, and commerce. For commerce, Carlos is a managing partner of his own small business and familiar with the challenges independent entities have. Carlos will actively promote the benefits of partnering with our Chamber of Commerce to further advocate business prosperity.

Quality of life: Our cities Parks & Recreation, and City Visitors Bureau sets precedence to many other cities. Carlos’s vision is to further our quality of life by sharing his perspective of global and domestic communities he has worked and traveled. Carlos is an avid bicyclist, fisherman and strong supporter of our dog new parks and pet friendly environments.
