Home Builders Association Endorses Mayoral Candidate for First Time in Local History


SAN ANGELO, TX – The Home Builders Association has announced, that for the first time in their history, they will be endorsing a candidate for Mayor.

The following is a release from the home builders association:

“The Home Builders Association of San Angelo is proudly endorsing Mayor Brenda Gunter for
re-election. She has been an incredible proponent for the building industry and promoting growth within our city. She has implemented numerous initiatives, including the Development Task Force and the in-fill program, that have helped strengthen building in San Angelo. She has been there with a common sense approach to dealing with the growing pains our industry has faced as they have arisen. Mayor Brenda Gunter has the experience and expertise to continue leading San Angelo in this next season of growth and the reason she is the HBA’s choice for Mayor.”

This is the first time the local HBA has ever endorsed a political candidate. Significantly, Gunter’s emphasis when she ran for her first term was a pro-business “Cut the Red Tape” campaign. This year’s re-election campaign sees her focused on success with ongoing economic development efforts like her “Planes, Trains, and Automobiles” initiatives, and how they serve as an engine to bring new business and increase the tax base to fund infrastructure needs with-out the need to borrow or raise taxes. 

“I am very proud to receive this endorsement. The members of the HBA are the people who literally build San Angelo’s future," said Mayor Gunter. "To have their support and encouragement means a lot to me personally as we continue all the important work, we are doing to not only benefit our citizens today but lay the foundations for a future of continued success.”

Yep, I have to agree, the Mayor is good at producing building projects, particularily down town, where she benefits with her business interests.  Now if only she and her council would focus half as much on the rest of the town, where there are no business benefits, just us plain old tax payers who want the roads/water fixed so we can use what we pay for.  Looking around I see many holes dug, one close to my house is about 4 inches deep and about 5-6ft square, it was dug several weeks ago, still not filled in, its just "there" in the middle of the road, smiling at us as we drive past and around it.

Instead of focusing on what business can take out of the city, why not focus on what the city council, those who represent the people of San Angelo, not the businesses would like to see done with OUR money?

I ask, did you guys even speak to anyone else? Especially if you’re saying this is your first time. Since maybe you saw people not like yourselves, rich people, possibly not in charge and being close buddies.
