Ive been asked to run for other political positions, but Im only interested in the city, he said.
Gonzalez ready to regain mayors seat
Gonzalez served on the BISD board of trustees for eight and a half years before taking a decade away from politics to start up the Oyster Bar restaurant with his brother in law.
Gonzalez said his list of accomplishments during his five years as mayor include increasing the citys fund balance, obtaining funding for an overpass on International Boulevard and a third international bridge at Los Tomates, cooperating with Cameron County officials and becoming a sister city with Matamoros. He also started Make a Difference Day, where residents trade trash for cash.
That Im a voice for the people, Gonzalez said. I work for them. I listen to them. I have the time. People dont need an appointment with me. I always return all my calls. My record speaks for itself.
He is a Los Fresnos native who married Mary Lou Barrientes 46 years ago. The couple has five children and five grandchildren.
Vela defeated Gonzalez in 1999 and promised to bring peace to a quarrelsome city commission. Though he has clashed with some sitting commissioners, Gonzalez said personality differences wouldnt be a problem if he returns.
My experience, my leadership ability, honesty, integrity, he explained. I dont tell people one thing and do something else. I tell people what I think. If I Michael Kors Orange can help those citizens, I will. If I cant, I tell them, Im sorry, I cant help you.
Knopp said factual quarreling, occasionally took place when Gonzalez was mayor, though the mayor isnt always able to keep peace on the commission.
The 67 year old Gonzalez finished second in the four man mayoral race on May 3, edging out fellow Commissioner Ernie Hernandez and frequent city critic Robert Uresti to face off with Eddie Trevio Jr., who garnered more than 40 percent of the vote Michael Kors Selma Studded Dusty Rose
Then in the early 1990s, Gonzalez said a group of business leaders Michael Kors 2018 Handbag Collection
Because of my leadership ability, I will be able to work with the commission, he said. They are just interested in Brownsville and its people, and thats what is important to me. I respect everybodys opinion. I may not always agree with them, but everyone is entitled to an opinion.
I knew a lot of people and they liked my way of thinking and the way I am honest. They asked me to get involved, he said.
I come from a very poor background, he said.
asked him to run for the city commission. He was elected in 1991, and three years later he beat former Commissioner Hernandez to finish one year of the term left by former Mayor Pat Ahumada, who resigned to run for county judge. Then, he was elected to a four year term as mayor.
if that is confrontational, Knopp said. Hes been involved a long time and hes gained some people that are very loyal to him.
Growing up, politics never entered his mind. He worked to pay for his schooling, both at St. Joseph Academy, where he graduated in 1954, and at Texas A University, where he earned a marketing and business administration degree.
After Mayor Blanca S. Vela defeated him in 1999 for the mayors job, he completed another successful campaign for the city commission in 2001.
But its not like Gonzalez to back down from a challenge. And if elected, he wants to focus on streets, which he said were ignored in the past because the city lacked funding. During his last term as mayor, he said he concentrated on increasing the citys finances. As he has in past campaigns, Gonzalez is also promising open government and fiscal conservation.
Henry is always very clear on where he stands on things. He certainly stands up for what he believes in, even Michael Kors Selma Medium Pale Pink
Its the same straightforward rhetoric Gonzalez has been known for since his political career began. He was an employee in the Brownsville Independent School District, and was later appointed to the board of trustees.
And what does he want voters to know about him?
This is the time when a number of projects were undertaken designed to improve lifestyles in the city, said Tony Knopp, a history professor at the University of Texas at Brownsville and Texas Southmost College. Certainty, Henry had allies that worked with him and supported him. When he had a majority (on the commission), things happened. But there were times when he did not have a majority.
