Learn More About Jose Macias
The Origin of My Family's Humble Beginnings in San Antonio are rooted on the Eastside. My Great Aunt Herlinda Macias and Uncle Celio Duran purchased a home at 509 Dawson St. in the mid 1920's.
My connection to the Eastside began when my family settled here in the mid 1920’s. They lived off Cherry Street and Dawson St. My Great Aunt and Uncle broke bread with the Sutton family, who lived across the street from my family. My great grandparents also lived next door to my great Aunt and Uncle and eventually they introduced my grandmother to my grandfather. It means a lot to me to know that my family’s humble beginnings started on the Eastside of San Antonio.
I am a strong advocate for inclusion and cultural diversity and for bringing people together to make impactful change. As a college student at San Antonio College, I protested for diversity and inclusion. It truly matters and I learned that early in life.
As a school board member, I have proudly served Judson ISD for nearly 10 years. I was elected in 2010 and reelected in 2013 and 2017. During my tenure, student success was my primary objective. I worked very hard to ensure every student had the resources and support they needed to achieve. The most recent accountability results from the State showed that Judson ISD increased 11 points over last year earning a B rating from the TEA.
I am extremely proud to have been selected to serve as your representative on the Alamo Colleges Board. We have an opportunity to do some great things in the area of higher education. As your representative, it is important that I am accessible to you. I encourage members of district 2 to call or text me directly at 210.386.0075. I say this with all sincerity, please do not hesitate to reach out. There is much work to get done in D2 and I am eager to get started.
I look forward to sharing more in future commentaries with the SA Observer about the Alamo Promise, my vision for D2, and what matters to members across the community.
