Message To Residents

I am honored to serve the residents of New Braunfels as a City Council member and proud to represent District 1. This area is rich with culture and has played an important role in our community’s history. Many of our residents have cherished childhood memories growing up in this area – attending dances at the West End Hall, playing baseball and soccer, eating snow cones on hot summer days, and attending elementary school. Generations of New Braunfelsers have grown up in this area and are proud of their roots in the West End.

The pride in this area will only increase as the west side continues to grow and develop. City projects alone include the new Fire Station #2, the new Westside Community Center Library Branch, the new Police Department and Veteran’s Memorial, and ongoing road improvements. Plus, there is a wealth of already existing community assets such as the Westside Community Center and future Library Branch, Lone Star Early Childhood Center, JAWS Skate Park, New Braunfels Little League, and the HEB Soccer Complex.

In addition to the public investment, new private investment is occurring in the area, bringing businesses and jobs. The location is adjacent to a main entrance into our community and a thoroughfare to get around town. The future of the West End is promising.

My time on council will be spent advocating for the people and places of District 1 and helping to guide the long-term vision of New Braunfels so our growth is positive. Thank you for allowing me to serve you and our community.
