In a public sector run by too few with experience in the private sector, Chris Baecker hopes to bring a different perspective.
While working by day in the Texas Oil & Gas industry, at night he teaches economics. He’s been extending these efforts in the classroom to the op-ed pages of the San Antonio Express-News, Real Clear Markets, the Foundation for Economic Education, etc.
Last year he helped launch InfuseSA. It’s a non-partisan organization seeking to advance freedom for Bexar County citizens. He is their editor and policy director.
Along the way he’s heard the concerns of the unsung heroes of society: small businesses and entrepreneurs. Too often these creators of societal wealth are slighted with burdensome, counterproductive ordinances. Their bank accounts are also taken for granted at tax time.
This combination of experience in business, the classroom, and community service is what Chris hopes to bring to City Hall.
