Issues

Campaign themes

2014

On her campaign website, Riojas highlighted the following issues:[2]

Jobs

  • Excerpt: "Corpus Christi needs to do everything it can to retain the current employers it has and recruit new businesses. This is the job of agencies like the Corpus Christi Regional Economic Development Corp., but how things are run at City Hall can play a significant role in keeping and gaining jobs. I’m committed to making decisions that will benefit the people in Corpus Christi who want our economy to grow. With nearly 20 years of experience with local industry, I have a deep understanding of how much this affects all of our quality of life. We’ve been fortunate here to have a low unemployment rate compared to the rest of the country, but I want to make sure that we’re prepared for the future by doing all that we can to create a city government that will welcome employers."

Infrastructure

  • Excerpt: "If we want Corpus Christi to grow, we have to invest in our community infrastructure. The problems are significant and we must develop a comprehensive plan to fix them. We can’t afford to lose sight of our basic community needs and must find creative ways to fund and fix our streets. We must keep the momentum going and make our community one that reverses the problems we’ve inherited so that future city residents can enjoy a quality infrastructure system."

Quality of life

  • Excerpt: "Corpus Christi has been blessed with amazing natural resources. I want to make every effort to capitalize on that by making the city a place that embraces new energy and growth. The skill set I’ve developed in business and through community activities will help the City Council communicate more, listen more, ask questions that need to be asked and find consensus. I want to move the city from a place that’s well known as an opportunity for growth to the fulfillment of that potential."
