I wanted to share a few words about my husband as he seeks the 10th district council seat in Dallas.
I’ve been married to Sirrano for almost ten years now, and we’ve been together for about nineteen. When we met, he was a dance instructor, teaching Ballroom and Latin dancing professionally. After some time, he got into the publishing business and ran a successful community newspaper in New Jersey for a very long time.
In those years I saw him build genuine relationships with people at all levels, from community activists, teachers, church leaders, churchgoers, business owners, community organizations, politicians, and also people having a hard time in life, living on the street. He put his heart and soul into the downtrodden community of the city, hosting events for children, bringing people of faith together, not hesitating to speak out against what he felt was mistreatment of the community, honoring those who did good in the community and in general, just being available for anyone who needed a helping hand or some words of advice. He has a passion for local public office mostly because of the role it can play in making lives, and communities, better — and bringing people together.
He has spent the better part of twelve years attending and participating in council meetings, campaigns, and local elections. He has a solid understanding of the roles and responsibilities of the city council and is very serious when it comes to doing what is right for a community, both financially and morally. I would describe him as fearless and I often tell him I wish I am fearless like he is.
But enough about business. On the personal side, my husband is an extrovert — very open and a lover of people. Two of his greatest pleasures are helping someone or making someone laugh.
Once you meet Sirrano, his honesty is what will shine through. He says what he means and what he feels, many times unfiltered. He is also a man of faith, and his Christianity is probably what guides him most. He does not back down from what he feels is right.
I know that if elected to the council seat, my husband is a man that will be seen and heard. You will know who your councilperson is. He will be available to you. He will fight for you. You can call him directly. He will hear your concerns and will represent you. He will be active in the community until he has exhausted himself. I’ve seen him do this endlessly. It doesn’t matter who you are, what your beliefs are, he represents all people and fights for what is fair and just. To vote for my husband is to vote for an advocate, a mentor, and a friend.
