Ray Basaldua is Running for the Office of San Antonio Mayor 2021

A Message from Ray

“I’m running for Mayor on a very specific and complex platform. I am not a politician nor a salesman and will not try to convince anyone of anything or ask you for your vote. I have raised the issue of mandating 0 to 3 early childhood education and it is now on the table. It is up to those ethical intellectuals in the community who have a legal duty to protect children to push this through.”
