I am Teresa Ramirez Gonzalez. My husband Hector and I have raised five children who blessed us with seven grandchildren. I am proud to be a native Texan and an American citizen with more than 25 years of experience in community outreach. Growing up in a small town southeast of Harris County, I was one of 12 children raised by my parents. I have lived in Fort Worth's District 4 since 2007 and have embraced this city as my home. 

My mother, Teadora Guerrero Ramirez, was a part of the Rosie the Riveter campaign during World War II, while her brothers served in the US military. She taught me the importance of family values and pride in my country, which continues to inspire me to this day. My father, Juan Garcia Ramirez, was an ordained Baptist minister, senior pastor of La Iglesia El Rey, and was also a civil advocate in his city and community, teaching me the importance of being a faithful public servant. 

As your City Council Candidate, I have a strong record of community service, including volunteering for the FWPD Neighborhood Crime Watch and advocating for residents and veterans at City Hall. I also served as a bilingual clerk and voter registrar, founder of the Tarrant County Educators of Texas, and held leadership positions at Birdville ISD, Richland Middle School, and Fort Worth's Korean Tiger Martial Arts Tournament Team. My heart is devoted to my community. With dedication, I have spent my time advocating for families, churches, nonprofits, students, and the neighborhoods in the District 4 communities. 

I am excited about the opportunity to become the first Hispanic woman to serve on Fort Worth's City Council for District 4.
