Oscar “Rito” Martinez has announced his candidacy for the La Joya ISD Board of Trustees, Place 6.
His announcement states as a former graduate of La Joya High School class of 2007, it will be a great honor to serve in the same community I grew up in. As a business owner I have amassed a great amount of knowledge in financial responsibilities, which could be applied to my public service duties. As a Federal Employee of the United States Postal Service for the past 7 years, I have been given the trust to handle sensitive and confidential material without ever failing to do so. In that same manner I encourage the people of La Joya ISD community to give me their trust in handling decisions regarding the future of our students and staff.
I’m a current college student with a major in engineering and minor in Political Science. I plan to excel on my education and continue my engagement in developing La Joya ISD into an outstanding academic community. The reason I filed for candidacy is that by being a young candidate I could bring fresh and new ideas to the table that would focus and benefit the education of our students. In addition, I plan to reach out to students, parents, and staff, with the use of growing technology and social media to communicate directly with them and make them aware on decisions being made by the school board.
By implementing this technique more transparency could be obtained within the school district. I encourage the people from the community to learn and study all of the candidates and make the best choice for our students. I humbly ask for your support on Election Day and vote for Anselmo Barrera and Oscar “Rito” Martinez.
