EDUCATION AND WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT
Develop and advance the workforce in Bexar County to promote economic prosperity for individuals, families, and the business community. Further cultivate a robust, inclusive local economy with a diverse workforce and pipelines to jobs and education for all. Anyone in need of good labor should have abundant opportunities and any business in need of quality labor should be able to locate or develop the talent they need. As your county commissioner, I seek to:
Build a pipeline of skilled workers to meet business demand and maximize the skill levels and confidence of our youth.
Align business, workforce, education, human services and economic development policies and programs to grow and sustain a healthy local economy.
Build the capacity of the workforce development system to respond to local needs, even in the face of shrinking resources.
Connect job seekers to living wage jobs.
