Albert has also been an active community volunteer at his alma mater, Molina High School, and also with Somos Tejas, and the West Oak Cliff Coalition, among others. He is deeply committed to community engagement and development; especially neighborhood engagement and has volunteered on local and regional campaigns. He spent the last 2+ years serving on the board of Somos Tejas and is proud of the work they have accomplished including being among the first, in June of 2020, to implement door-to-door efforts in Dallas to provide COVID-19 education as well as outreach to ensure that residents in the community completed the Census. Finally, he is inspired by the results of his work with the West Oak Cliff Coalition to ensure that land use planning in West Oak Cliff was accomplished with increased community participation and through a lens of equity. That work resulted in the formation of the Automotive Association of Oak Cliff, and he is honored to continue supporting this group to advocate for locally owned small businesses while addressing zoning and development pressures that put them at risk. He knows that there are many more areas in District 1 that deserve this level of engagement, which leads to increased civic participation and more equitable outcomes for everyone.
Albert knows that authentically engaging as many of District 1’s residents in issues like neighborhood development, infrastructure spending, and voting is the way to ensure a better Oak Cliff for all of us. Albert aspires for a more active and representative form of democracy where the will of the whole of Oak Cliff is accurately and truly represented. He looks forward to bringing his unique perspective, passion, and determination, if elected as the City Council Member for District 1 in the upcoming May 2023 election.
