From El Cuatro and Barrio Azteca, to Canta Ranas and Sal Si Puedes, everyone in District 8 has a story to tell. Whether it be about being life long residents, why we love our community or what we need to do to make it better.
Amber was born and raised in Laredo. My grandpa, Mike Alvarez, grew up in District 8. Her great grandmother, Guadalupe Alvarez, and her sisters Anita & Theresa, were political activists in this District. They didn't have cars but they walked and knocked on doors to get out the vote. They were known for their efforts as the "Tres Adelitas". Amber never imagined that she would be on the same path, walking the same streets, to make her community better. It's in her blood and heart.
As the first in her family to go to college and graduate, to coming home and becoming a small business owner, to being a leader in my community, Amber knows that District 8 deserves the most ambitious, service driven representative on City Council. She's ready to listen and she's ready to get to work for my District. THAT'S WHY SHE'S RUNNING.
