Cynthia Carrasco runs for Mayor of Alice.

Carrasco is running to be the next Mayor for the City of Alice. She served as a council member from 2017 through 2019.

Why do you feel it is important to run for this position? What are your qualifications?

I decided to run for Mayor of this great city because I felt that our city needs someone that will take on the responsibilities of being a strong consistent leader with the best intentions and serving our citizens. I will be a leader that will listen to the will of the people and will perform accordingly. I will work hard to do the work necessary to bring about positive change for our city. I have throughout my career taken on the responsibilities of being a leader. I have over 16 years of retail management experience. I am a businesswoman that owns and operates my own real estate business. I have been in the real estate business for over 20 years.

What do you want voters to know about yourself?

I am a mother of a beautiful, blended family of six children. I have served our community through different clubs, committees, and different organizations. We have always strived to teach our children to be respectful, honest, and humble. I have lived and worked in Alice for the past 26 years, in that time I have seen our city go through some major struggles and downturns. There is so much to improve upon, and work that is needed for our city, but I know with my experience, consistent work ethic and integrity, I can improve our city and its status. We need to get back to basics; hard work and listening to the will of the people. Together, I honestly believe we can bring about change. I want to bring accountability, transparency, integrity, and economic growth to our city. Thank you for your support and I humbly ask for your vote this May 1, 2021. The future is ours to shape: Let us shape it together!
