Take It To The Street With Mike Villareal

wr1016-59.jpg

Mike Villarreal represented San Antonio in the Texas House of Representatives. His legislation has helped the city grow into a world class city. He wrote the bill that secured much of the funding for the Hemisfair redevelopment...and it wasn't without battles. 

In this story he tells us why he came back to San Antonio, and how he won that first race.

The following track was recorded at the September 6, 2016 Worth Repeating with the theme "Fight or Flight." Worth Repeating is Texas Public Radio's live storytelling event series.
