And the community surveyed its surroundings and asked, “Who is going to put us first? Who’ll be a true voice for us?” And the wind blowing through the mesquite, brush and weathered streets replied, “On March 6, you’ll find the answer in the question.”
All riddles and hyperbole aside, Val Verde County Commissioner Precinct 2 candidate, Juan Carlos Vazquez, is running on the promises of “A Voice For You” and “Community First.”
A practical platform seemingly upholds these declarations. Vazquez supports new business growth in the county, implement an effective purchasing/procurement protocol for heavy equipment, improve trash pickup, facilitate better methods of controlling the rampant stray animal problem in Precinct 2 and add speed bumps.
“I am running for office because of my passion to give back to the community and to protect the best interest of all constituents of Precinct 2 and the people of Val Verde County,” he said.
Additionally, Vazquez indicated that he operates his business Del Rio Towing & Wrecker with an open door policy and that same approach would be implemented if he prevails March 6.
A highly successful local entrepreneur for almost two decades, Vazquez said his unwavering desire to help others and doing what is right was informed by Pope John Paul II. When he was 17 years old he attended a papal visit in Detroit, which had a profound impact on him. It provided a type of morality map for his life.
“It helped shape the person I have become,” he said.
A Del Rio native, Vazquez describes himself as a family man and leader.
“I have always been a leader, most importantly for my family, but also for my business decision-making experiences,” Vazquez said.
