"I want to first bring more business opportunities and thereby promote economic development to attract more and better jobs that are related only in three of my priorities as a councilor," she said.
Campos also proposes to improve health programs in the city, promote education, the arts, improve traffic infrastructure and expand the Bartlett Street and Springfield on the north side of town.
Other campaign priorities are to seek recreation programs that can provide not only young people but also the elderly and the whole family.
"Of course we can not neglect the five pillars that are the primary responsibilities in local government such as police security, fire protection, drinking water, drainage and streets," she said.
Campos stressed that being retired Director of Probation Services for Webb County Juvenile Department, she has all the time available to devote as a councilor, making sure everyone in District 5 have a voice.
She stressed her experience as a public servant in the UISD board, where she has always sought to give immediate attention to all the concerns of the community working together with peers.
As a graduate from TAMIU in criminal justice, where she also received her certificate as a paralegal, Campos has worked for numerous and important community and voluntary organizations in Laredo and Webb.
"My only wish as District 5 councilor is to serve the community and try to work towards a full economic development to improve the quality of life for everyone," she said.
Campos will contend in the general elections on November 2.
