Elections for City Council May 4, 2019
?
My name is Cesar Guerra and I have decided to run for Kennedale City Council Place 3. I am a husband, a father, a step-father, a brother, an uncle, and a neighbor. I moved to Kennedale in 2014 after marrying the love of my life, Nadia. {{more: continue …}}She has been a resident of Kennedale since 2007 and always described Kennedale as a small town filled with big hearts.
?
When we started our lives as a married couple in Kennedale I immediately understood why she fell in love with this small town. It was safe, there were family friendly events held throughout the year, and the community was united.
?
Shortly after moving here I applied for a position in the Keep Kennedale Beautiful Board because I felt I needed to make an ongoing contribution to the city I called home and it also allowed me to know my neighbors and meet other citizens of Kennedale. Joining the Keep Kennedale Beautiful Board has been a learning and fulfilling experience that allowed me to witness firsthand people working together to keep our community clean and beautiful.
?
Volunteering my time on this city board allowed me to observe changes taking place in City Hall. While I understand that not everyone is always happy with the decisions that are made in City Hall, I felt that there were too many negative changes that were affecting the quality of life in Kennedale. My decision to run for place 3 is based on my desire to live in a city that is united, harmonious, and to improve the quality of life not only for my family but for my neighbors and the citizens of Kennedale.
?
You may wonder, what makes me qualified to run for city council? And the answer is I have a Bachelor?s degree in Finance and currently I am taking the last two courses for my Masters in Business Administration. I have worked in the finance and cost control sector of international construction corporations for over 15 years where fiscal responsibility is a top priority. My time in the cost control sector has increased my awareness of the potential risks and rewards of a change. I know that the decisions I make will be educated, researched, and rational.
?
I have a grasp of the complexities that financial accounting has to offer and am willing to work hard to learn governmental accounting standards. I know that with my skills, knowledge, and experience I can evaluate Kennedale?s fiscals? policies and create a financial control that encourages resources being spent in a sensible manner.
?
Finally, I want to represent the needs of the citizens of Kennedale. We need a City Council that oversees the performance of city departments, to ensure that our essential city services are delivered efficiently and with excellence. I have the desire to do the hard work of thoughtful legislation for the benefit of the citizens. I intend to ask the tough questions to ensure that taxpayers are getting their money?s worth.?
?

My decision to run for City Council Place 3 is based on my concern for OUR small town. I want to show everyone that Kennedale is a small town with a big future.
