"San Antonio, Better Days Are Coming!"
San Antonio Woman Mayoral Candidate
SAN ANTONIO TEXAS - My name is Denise Gutierrez-Homer. Like many San Antonio citizens, I am ready for common sense local leadership. As Mayor of San Antonio, and a bilingual hispanic woman, I will make myself available to all community members as I advocate to improve the quality of life for all San Antonians. San Antonio tax payers are financially invested in our security, health, education, and housing. Our businesses need action now. Homelessness and crime need to be addressed now. Our hospitality and tourism need to open now. Citizens must have options in their own decisions and choices.
Having been born and raised in Brownsville, Texas, I experienced both the Texas and Mexico cultures during my youth. My parents exemplified how hard work was a team effort, and as children we were expected to participate in our family well-being. My younger brother and I often worked on our rural family farm in Mexico and helped our mother in her beauty salon. What I learned is that it is not all rosy and it takes hard work to improve.
Over the years, I saw how my parents worked several jobs during the day so my dad could attend night school several hours away to receive his professional education. We understood education was a huge part of our existence and a way to improve our quality of life. I am proud to have three generations tied to San Antonio. My grandparents met and married while my grandfather was in the military service; hence, my dad was born at Santa Rosa Hospital. In 1983 San Antonio became my home when I enrolled at UTSA, where I studied political science and fine arts. As a UTSA 1987 graduate, I have watched our beautiful San Antonio blossom before my eyes into a world travel destination-a cutting-edge Medical Center-a high-tech incubator-city of artists, restauranteurs, and scientists. And we are Military USA.
I taught elementary school for 3 years before making use of my talents in Interior Design and Decorative Painting, with an emphasis in Architectural Restoration, and created Pintor Decorative Design Studio. As an entrepreneur, I knocked on doors, introduced my talents to the local Building industry, and slowly gained traction. I have traveled around Texas working for both private and commercial clients, visiting locations that inspired me to create unique finishes and offer them to the San Antonio market. I believe I influenced the change and style of Home design and color palettes during the 90’s and early 2000. The Earth-Yellow Stucco, popular today, along with San Saba stone, was used for a 1999 project I helped design and stood out as Avant garde.
Let’s bring common sense back to San Antonio City Council and start a new chapter. Better days are coming.
