San Antonio, Texas -- Bexar County Tax Assessor-Collector Sylvia S. Romo, CPA, RTA, announced today that she is endorsing Ken Mireles for the Democratic nomination in the 117th House District.

"I've known Ken Mireles for a long time. He has integrity and I trust his judgement. As a former state legislator myself, I know he'll be effective," said Romo.

Romo is the only countywide Latina elected executive in Bexar County and has accumulated a long list of accomplishments throughout her nearly 20-year career in the legislature and the county.

Marcus Cardenas, District 19 State Democratic Executive Committee Member, also endorsed Mireles today. "Ken's professional background and public service experience are exactly what we need right now in the state legislature," said Cardenas. "The people of District 117 will finally have a representative who's on their side and who will put forth legislation to help our working families, students, seniors and vets."

Sylvia Romo is a respected and dedicated public servant and Marcus Cardenas is a fresh and energetic voice on the SDEC,” said Mireles. “I am honored to have their support.”

Romo and Cardenas join Councilman Rey Saldana, who endorsed Mireles last month, in strongly supporting his candidacy for the Texas House of Representatives, District 117.
