Elizondo in Democratic runoff for Precinct 2
Bexar County Commissioner Paul Elizondo has been a fixture on the court
for decades. That experience is why voters should stick with him
in the upcoming runoff election.
Elizondo, 82, faces a tough challenge from Queta Rodriguez, the county’s veterans services officer. Rodriguez is an impressive and spirited candidate, having retired as a captain in the U.S. Marine Corps. The winner will face Republican Theresa Connolly, an attorney, in the general election. Our recommendation for Elizondo is grounded in his record of accomplishments on a variety of issues throughout his lengthy political career. He was a crucial player in the University Health System’s trauma center expansion, the renovation of the Robert B. Green campus and the forthcoming Women & Children’s Inpatient Tower at the South Texas Medical Center. He has led the county in addressing flood control issues and was responsive to our concerns about dangerous unpaved county roads. This is a critical time for county government, which is moving forward with the San Pedro Creek revitalization and restoration of the Alameda Theater, and may play a part in a transformational transit plan for the region. For decades, Elizondo has played a key role in every major decision for the county. We recommend him in this primary runoff election — based on sound public policy accomplishments in the past and more surely to come.
