My name is Gerardo Villalpando, I am announcing my candidacy for the Maverick County Hospital District Board of Trustees.
I am 35 years old and grew up in this community. My parents are Rudy and Elsa Villalpando. I am the third eldest of 4 children who have been taught the value of service over self. My father served as a public official for the City of Eagle Pass for over 16 years and on the Maverick County Hospital District Board of Trustees.
My Parents have taught us that public service is a noble calling where we can make a positive difference in our community and for those that we represent.
That is the main reason I have registered to seek a seat on the MCHD Board of Trustees where we can assure that our region's indigent and many others receive the specialty care services they need and deserve.
I am a graduate of the Eagle Pass / CC Winn High School back in 2003. I went on to study at the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) and received my Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology.
After graduation, I began numerous business endeavors including a medical billing company and other entrepreneurships throughout the years.
I am the part owner and Director of Business Development at Anthem Health Care an Agency which provides medical care services to the community and region.
These services include Nursing Care, Physical Therapy Services, Occupational Therapy Services, Speech Therapy, and Home Health Aide Services.
My experience in these services including in the medical care component has given me extensive knowledge of the medical needs in our community. This, I believe will be useful in making sound decisions along with the MCHD Board of Trustees to provide the medical care services so much needed for our community.
I believe in community involvement and volunteer in child development through volunteering as a little league baseball coach. Our children are the future, and we must foster all that is positive in their lives.
I am running for the Hospital District Board because I want to serve my community. I want to assure that along with the MCHD Administration and Medical Care Professionals we continue to work to improve the welfare of our region.
We are living through unprecedented times due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. Through this, we must be visionaries and progressive minded in dealing with an ever-changing situation and continuously work in bettering our services. With that comes a great responsibility that I will not take lightly.
As a region we remain underserved in all medical care needs including in the specialty field. The Maverick County Hospital District is set up under the law that created it back in the 1960s to address that. We must do so, by being proactive and recruit more specialty care services to our region.
I believe that MCHD is the agency that will lead the way to expanding on all those needs. And I firmly want to be part of that expansion and bring our community the services we so much need and deserve.
I humbly ask for your support in the Maverick County Hospital District Election which will take place on November 3rd, 2020.
Early voting is scheduled to begin on October 13 through the 30th.
