Gabrien is an Army Reserve officer, community and campaign organizer, and service industry worker. He is running for San Antonio City Council District 10 because he believes people across the political spectrum are ready for a new generation of elected officials - someone who will serve proactively, with humility, with a fresh perspective, and with the will to empower small business leaders and neighbors. With Gabrien, everyone has a voice at the table.
Gabrien is challenging a two-term incumbent in the most historically conservative seat in San Antonio. He is running to bring COVID19 relief and recovery for small and locally operated businesses. He advocates for Housing First policies that aim to keep families in their homes and provide permanent resources to chronically homeless residents. As the son of two Army veterans, he sees an opportunity to expand mental healthcare access, educational potential, and career opportunities for veterans and their families in Military City. Gabrien is eager to address inequities within the community, push for police accountability, follow science and further limit San Antonio's carbon footprint.
Gabrien holds a degree in Political Science and a minor in Military Science from St. Mary's University in San Antonio. He is a proud graduate of MacArthur High School in District 10.
