THIS LETTER IS FOR INFORMATION PURPOSES ONLY AND IN NO WAY CONSTITUTES AN ENDORSEMENT BY THE CROCKETTEERS:
Dear Sports Fans and Soccer Supporters,
I am writing to you to make you aware of an important City Council election.
Early Voting is this week. I, Marco Barros, am running
for City Council District 9. I have been the Sports Champion for sports facilities and Parks for
over 25 years.
I have been involved in building many sports facilities and improving parks in many
areas of the city, even when called as a volunteer and expert to build soccer fields in other city
council districts. My goal has always been to support facilities in Bexar County and for all
children to have opportunities near their own neighborhoods.
I, along with George Block and the San Antonio Sports where I also serves as a board member
championed the building of 13 sports projects since May 2008 and all of them were completed
within 3 years and ON budget.
They included: Mission City Youth Soccer Complex, Culebra Creek Soccer, McAllister Park,
Mission Concepcion, Missions Baseball Academy, National Aquatics Center, St. Mary’s Sports
Complex, Southeast Skyline Baseball, UIW fencing Center, UTSA Athletic Complex and
Wheatley Heights Sports Track Complex, adding Track, Soccer, Baseball, Volleyball and Swimming!
All of these complexes and sports fields were paid by the Hotel Tax and Car rental Tax known as the Venue Tax and collected by Bexar County
so there were no city tax increases for local residents.
I volunteer in all parks and can often be found picking up trash or improving McAllister or
other city parks. One of my goals is to open more park facilities such as Steubing Ranch Park
and a potential of a new park of over 200 acres for recreational activities, running, bike trails,
etc. My love and passion for dog parks is also shown.
I am already working on an international World Collegiate Soccer event to come to San Antonio
every year in March, plus helping 3 other marathons and races to stay in San Antonio.
