If I were to mention that I am some obscure elected official in San Antonio, Texas, I would actually be telling the truth. I am one of five elected Representatives of the Poor sitting on the Community Action Advisory Board. This board advises the city of San Antonio on poverty issues and provides oversight of the Community Action Programs provided by the city’s Department of Community Initiatives.
You can look it up through the City of San Antonio’s website. I represent Area V, which encompasses city council districts 8, 9, and 10 and the adjourning parts of northern Bexar County.
