    Delicia Herrera is a lifelong resident of San Antonio, a proud product of the Edgewood community and attended undergraduate and graduate school at St. Mary’s University. She was elected to the San Antonio City Council in 2005 and re-elected in 2007 by the largest margin of any contested Council race. Since her service in elected office ended due to term limits, Herrera maintains her commitment to her community and issues that affect San Antonio. She currently works intimately in workforce development programs directly with the individuals that the programs are there to serve – adults that need to improve their basic reading, writing and math skills while learning a skill in high demand industries through Alamo Colleges – for gainful employment and a new career path. The public trust she maintains and her commitment to serving her community is also evidenced as her constituents continue to seek her assistance for her advice and advocacy even though she no longer holds a public or elected office. As an owner of a small business, DMH Construction and Professional Services and a small business advocate, Herrera opened doors for small businesses. Prior to her service on the City Council, she was appointed to the Mayor’s Blue Ribbon Committee for Small Business, the State of Texas General Services Commission, and Congressman Gonzalez’s Congressional Housing Task Force. She also served on the building committee for the Affordable Parade of Homes in District 6. Committed to serving her community, Herrera served on the Board of the Edgewood Family Network, the Rape Crisis Center, and the Los Jardines Neighborhood Association. Committed to serving her community, Herrera served on the Board of the Edgewood Family Network, the Rape Crisis Center, and the Los Jardines Neighborhood Association. Her civic duties include teaching courses in the community such as What You Need to Know in Order to Protest Your Property Tax Appraisal, preparing students for the US Citizenship exam, continuing to assist former constituents with issues, and is active at St. Gabriel’s Catholic Church which is the same parish she was baptized when she was less than a month old. In 2000, Herrera worked hard to improve the quality of housing for residents of the Mirasol Housing Development bringing residents ‘concerns before the appropriate entities and organizations. Some closure was made in May 2011 when several residents received a settlement from the builder after a decade of unresolved issues. . . . my motto during my career, campaigns and in office has been “A HIGHER STANDARD.” Herrera’s first term accomplishments include serving an integral role in negotiating the arrival of the Microsoft Corporation in her district, a founding member of the Westside Development Corporation, and crafting a public-private partnership agreement to remove over 200 homes from the flood plain. During her second term, she continued to thrive in her leadership with accomplishments that included securing the highest dollars for projects in the 2007-2012 Bond Program passed by the voters, adding a full time ambulance to service the Westover Hills area which was the fastest growing area during her tenure, taking a proactive approach to the high foreclosures in her area, and traveled to Chennai, India to participate in the signing of the first Sister City Agreement in 25 years. Her list of accomplishments not listed here addresses many aspects of needs and a diverse understanding of many complex issues. Mayor Phil Hardberger appointed Councilwoman Herrera to the following Council Committees: Governance, Urban Affairs, Economic and International Affairs Committee, Chair of the Audit Committee, Sustainability Task Force for the Building Trades, Committee of 6 Workforce Development Board, Committee of Seven Storm water Management, Public Safety Committee, AACOG, and the initial search committee for the future Haven for Hope Campus where we traveled across the country visiting other programs. It is that same determination and hard work that I bring to the State Representative House Seat race as a candidate for District 124. We will cross the finish line with the same determination and commitment I give to everything I do. In closing, my motto during my career, campaigns and in office has been “A HIGHER STANDARD.” In order to continue to achieve that “higher standard,” I am guided in everything I do by these following precepts: Principles, Integrity, Conscious, and Commitment. These precepts evolved during my undergraduate years in a true Marianist tradition. When no one believed in me, the grassroots community – the invisible and most powerful stakeholder -- gave me the opportunity to be their voice. They are the ones that started to make my dreams come true. It is our community that I have the greatest debt. I owe it all to them. I will always owe them. Read More

WELCOME!

Thank you for visiting my campaign website. Please use this site to learn more about why I am running, to keep up with the election, and to get involved with the campaign.

When I first became a public servant, a decade ago, my only desire was to help improve my community and to do my part in making the lives of those around me better. As a lifelong resident of San Antonio, and a proud a proud product of the Edgewood community St. Mary’s University, I believe our community deserves a 'higher standard.'

As your State Representative, I'll focus on my constituents and my community. I'll fight for what matters most, like funding for public schools, hiring more qualified teachers, and creating better jobs. Together we can change the way things are done in Austin.

The Texas Legislature is already in session, and I am committed to bringing my experience, and tireless work ethic to District 124. I respectfully ask for your vote in this Special Election.
