City Council candidate Frank Arredondo is running for place five against Scott Gregson.  Arredondo’s general consultant, John Eakin, said Arredondo’s campaign is focused on three key aspects: creating jobs, maintaining infrastructure and expanding the interest of expanding jobs for today’s generation.

Arredondo’s campaign plan is to maintain infrastructures by working with the state and federal agencies to make sure infrastructure is being expanded.

The second aspect of the campaign is to continue creating jobs for members of the San Marcos community and Texas State University students. Arredondo plans to create jobs by continuing to fund the Greater San Marcos partnership which is responsible for creating thousands of jobs and bringing Amazon and Epic Piping into San Marcos.

Arredondo believes bringing companies such as Epic Piping and Amazon will bring more technology-based businesses such as Apple and Tesla, creating “better paying jobs” and competition for wage growth.

Eakin said what separates Arredondo from his running mates is his leadership record within the state of Texas. Arredondo is a Southwest Texas State University graduate and was appointed by Bill Clinton. Arredondo has also made development for low income communities a priority which Eakin believes is “unparalleled” compared to other candidates running in the race.

“He refers to the low income work as a ministry, he has always been a man of and for the community,”  Eakin said. “He is so dedicated in giving back to this community and what they have given him over the years as a resident here in San Marcos.”

Eakin said Arredondo believes students are essential and has dedicated three days to being on campus last week alone. He said Arredondo is fighting to represent Texas State students and the interests that matter to students the most.

Arredondo’s watch party is being hosted at Railyard Bar and Grill awaiting the results for place 5 which are set to be released later tonight.

“Frank is the candidate on this ballet that has the leadership, the trust, and the experience of bringing results to San Marcos over his almost 40 years of public service,” Eakin said. “I am really optimistic that voters will stand by him just like he has stood by them for the past 40 years.”
