a dance. I was happy that the Paul Elizondo Orchestra was there to celebrate with them.”

However, being a County Commissioner opened up opportunities to enhance the quality of life for Bexar County residents and Elizondo’s constituents, and also brought the Commissioner’s Court into the 21st Century.

“As a musician, I learned to always be prepared, have a strong work ethic, and to pay attention to the quality of music.”

These were some of the lessons that prepared Elizondo for a career in politics. “In politics, this means that I have to know as a much as possible on every issue affecting the people I represent.”

As a Bexar County Commissioner, Elizondo has enhanced our community.

From creating a Diabetes Center to funding $500 million for projects without raising taxes Elizondo has been a trailblazer addressing the needs of the people.

“There are so many projects I created, but I’m glad that we were able to start a flood control program that wasn’t reactive for the people, created a Diabetes Center and neighborhood clinics, and attracting new businesses like Metronics. Trabajos are important to the people I represent,” explained Elizondo.

While walking the halls of the Bexar County Courthouse, Elizondo knows he has traveled a long journey. Being servicial was just a way of life for Paul Elizondo. Familia played a vital role in his political career. “I couldn’t have achieved anything without my parents, my wife, my sons. They’ve all helped me.”

The young man that was inspired by Henry B. Gonzalez and Gus Garcia has inspired many others to be public servants. “I even think I inspired some opponents as well,” Elizondo said jokingly.

Paul Elizondo’s advice to those who wish to follow in his footsteps is to “Create your own path. You have to be your own person. But, make sure to be prepared and give it all you got.”

JORDAN, ESTEBAN (STEVE)
