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.”
