Description of Qualifications:

Resident of Corpus Christi

Term of office: 2 years

Term limit: Yes

Salary: $6,000

Rachel Ann Caballero:

BACKGROUND: Describe your strongest competency and life experience that qualify you to hold this office.

I have been around politics my whole life. I have always maintained a level of interest with regards to politics and government & at one time, I campaigned for candidates. However, I believe my competency stems from a life of constant eagerness to learn, trying to be a better human being to others, & be as knowledgeable as possible in the things that I am passionate about. I work hard. I believe that the average tax payers deserve a voice on our city council that they do not currently have.

Rachel Ann Caballero:

ISSUES: During your campaign, what is the number one concern expressed to you by the residents of Corpus Christi? What is your response to this concern?

I believe the number one concern I have heard is personal freedoms being taken. People feel as if their right to chose what is best for themselves and their families are being decided for them. The other that will directly impact Corpus Christi is economic development. I believe that the local government needs to be more receptive to allowing LOCAL residents to become business owners and other smaller organizations.

Rachel Ann Caballero:

EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT: How would you rate the capability of Corpus Christi to respond to natural and human-made disasters, such as hurricanes, pandemics, chemical fires or spills, and flooding?

Poor
Below average
Average
Above average
Excellent

I believe the city did what they were told to do by the state and federal mandates. Could we have handled the counting and reporting differently, absolutely yes.

ECONOMY: The COVID-19 pandemic has created a feeling of uncertainty. What are your views of the future for our local economy, including local jobs and property values, and general well-being, including healthcare, affordable housing, and schools?

I believe that the numbers were overstated and purposefully manipulated to shutdown our economy. This has affected small towns like ours directly impacting hard working individuals and small businesses that are barely hanging on. I believe that we need to reopen and people should follow the necessary precautions to do so safely.

Rachel Ann Caballero:

PRIORITIES: Other than the issues previously addressed, what are your top three priorities, and, if elected, how would you address them?

My top three priorities are infrastructure, constituent equality (no more special interest majority), and fair economic development for ALL.

Happy Tuesday!!!

The fight continues..... Today I am taking the day off to represent all citizens who oppose a tax increase and an additional storm water fee at the Corpus Christi city council meeting. As a single person business owner, no work equals no pay.

I do this because we have to fight. We have to fight these politicians and city employees (OUR EMPLOYEES) when they try to raise our taxes and add unnecessary storm water fees and make irrational decisions that are advantageous to BIG industry and not the actual community.

You have to work. You have to watch your children. You are taking care of a loved one.... Fill in life event here......
THAT is why I'm doing this. For those who want to but cannot.

EMAIL AND CALL YOUR DISTRICT REP!!!! City council starts at 11:30. LET YOUR OPINION BE HEARD at least via email and/or phone call!!!

Updates to follow. #FIGHTTHEGOODFIGHT
City council contact information in comments! PLEASE CALL & EMAIL

I want to start this post off with:
1) I AM MAD
2) NOT EVERYONE CAN AFFORD MORE TAXES, FEES, and/or ORDINANCES IN THIS CITY. Just because you can, doesn't mean they should be added/approved.

While City of Corpus Christi - Government was distracting you with Facebook posts about:
1) Traffic warnings
2) West Nile warnings
3) Covid #’s
4) Covid deaths
5) Vaccine clinic locations
6) CDC recommendations

And our FULL TIME MAYOR was distracting you with Facebook posts about:
1) Thoughts & prayers Hurricane Ida
2) Thoughts & prayers for the military
3) Adding a TREE ORDINANCE (GRRRR)
4) National Dog Day

THEY FAILED TO MENTION THAT THEY HAVE TENTATIVELY AGREED TO INCREASE TAXES WITHIN $.006239 OF THE AMOUNT REQUIRED TO GET VOTER APPROVAL.

VOTER APPROVAL AMOUNT: $ .652503
TAX INCREASE THEY APPROVED: $ .646264
They kept it RIGHT BELOW the requirement so we would NOT have a say or so it would not require a vote.
They are justifying this increase because property taxes increased. Who raises the property taxes? THEY DO. THIS IS A VISCIOUS CYCLE. (Photos in comments.)

THEY ALSO FAILED TO MENTION THAT THEY HAVE TENTATIVELY AGREED TO ADD A STORM WATER FEE. This is to ALLEGEDLY help maintenance storm water. Aren’t we ALREADY paying for this in taxes???? And they can't even get that right???? (Photos in comments.)

This was proposed by none other than Peter Zanoni. His justification for this was because we are the only city in Texas that does not charge this fee. I have been warning people about Peter Zanoni for some time. As tax payers and residents of this city, we are paying him $330,000.00 A YEAR to find ways to extort more fees and taxes from us. WE ARE PAYING HIM TO DO THIS.

The City of Corpus Christi has been profitable for years. They do NOT NEED THIS MONEY. THEY CANNOT EVEN PROPERLY DISBURSE AND MAINTAIN WHAT HAS BEEN PAID AND IS GIVEN TO THEM NOW.

We need to put an end to this money grab. So much for a full time mayor. No one needs a full time mayor that is going to increase taxes, add fees, and add ordinances. I will take a lazy Joe over this ANY DAY.

CALL THESE PEOPLE.
EMAIL THESE PEOPLE. DON’T STOP UNTIL THEY HEAR US.
BOMBARD THEM WITH CALLS & EMAILS. THE FEES STOP HERE.

THEY MAKE THEIR FINAL APPROVAL ON SEPTEMBER 7th, 2021. NEXT TUESDAY!
THEY EITHER CHANGE THEIR MIND, OR THEY WILL BE OUT OF A JOB COME 2022.

END THE MONEY GRAB NOW. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SHARE!

They ALL seem to have forgotten about the lockdowns, job loss, and evictions because of this "pandemic". They only use Covid as an excuse when it's advantageous to them but when we need to use it, we need to just suck it up.

You will one day stand before God and answer for everything you have done. How will you do on that day? Here's a quick test: How many lies have you told in your life? Have you ever stolen anything? Have you used God's name in vain? Have you ever looked at someone with lust? Have you had sex outside of marriage? Have you ever had, or been involved in, an abortion? Will you be guilty on Judgment Day? If you have done these things, God sees you as a lying, thieving, fornicating, blasphemer, adulterer at heart, and murderer, and the Bible warns that God will punish you in a terrible place called the lake of fire: Revelation 21:8, AV: "But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death." Yet God, who is "...rich in mercy,..." sent His Son the Lord Jesus Christ to suffer and die on the cross for all guilty sinners. We broke God's law and the Lord Jesus Christ paid our fine. That means God can legally dismiss our case and He can commute our death sentence. John 3:16, AV: "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life." Then the Lord Jesus Christ rose from the dead and defeated death. Please, repent of your sins and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior, and God will give you eternal life as a free gift: Ephesians 2:8-9, AV: "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast."
