John V. Garza
John V. Garza was born on March 13th, 1955 in Herlong, California and raised by parents, retired USAF S/SGT Arthur and Maria D. Garza, who traveled extensively and globally in his early years before finally settling back to their Westside San Antonio home in 1967. John graduated from John F. Kennedy High School in 1973 and went on to attend The University of Denver where he received his Bachelor's of Arts and Science degree in Mass Communication in December of 1977. John married a South San West Campus graduate, Debra A. Garza, in 1980 and has raised five children John Zachariah, Jacqueline, Isaiah, Rebekah and Hannah and are proud grandparents to two grandchildren Caden and Jezra. The Garza’s currently live and work in District 117 and have always been active in serving and ministering to families in their community.
John’s background is in housing and real estate; he has held several executive positions in his successful award winning business and sales career which now spans over twenty five years. John has first-hand knowledge of the challenges that rapid growth has created in the northwest sector of District 117. John has been active in leadership training in both the business and private sector. He has a vision to provide an infrastructure of support, guidance, and mentoring to aide in launching Hispanic and social conservative leaders into political office in the south and west areas of San Antonio and Bexar County.
John feels the weight of the pressing problems with education, healthcare, property taxes, and rising food and gas prices. John’s vision spans a conservative accountability in education, medical care, immigration, and government spending, this accountability centralizes on protecting the integrity of the family unit, and it includes expanding the role of the individual citizens, community, church and private sector in managing those support and aide programs to families. John opposes increased taxation as the first assessment in improving the quality of life in Texas.
Contrary to other representatives, John is personally involved and invested in seeing solutions to these difficulties come to pass. He is committed to representing the voice of his constituents and keeping in constant communication with them to insure that their needs are met. He has opened three district offices to ensure his accessibility and transparency to his constituents. He encourages his neighbors and community to get involved and build a relationship with your government and representatives.Posts by John V. Garza
