"The Hon. Gloria Ray, Trustee for the Alamo Colleges District, demonstrates on a daily basis why voters elected her to this important position in our county. She is involved in a myriad of activities sponsored by the Alamo Colleges District and its 5 comprehensive colleges: San Antonio College, Palo Alto College, St. Philip's College, Northeast Lakeview College, and Northwest Vista College. Ray vigorously supports all the students, programs, and activities in the eight counties the Alamo Colleges District represents. Her research and detail in Chairing her Board Committee, the Workforce Development Committee, has allowed her to inform fellow Board Members regarding the needs for action to move the District forward. Please vote for Gloria Ray for Trustee in Alamo Colleges District #2! She is a true asset to our Board of Trustees!"

"The Hon. Gloria Ray, Trustee for the Alamo Colleges District is by far the best candidate for this upcoming election. She has done an amazing job leading the workforce development committee and improving our programs here at ACD. Ms. Ray not only has excelled in chairing this committee but is a true advocate and supporter of our students. She never fails to show up for her community at all five colleges within Alamo Colleges District. To me, that is one of the most important aspects of being a board member. Her familiarity with the district and community allows her to perform her duty with grace and accuracy. She has done an amazing job representing district 2 and is certainly a vital person on the Board of Trustees. I am happy to endorse Hon. Gloria Ray as a vote for her is one that will ensure your voice will be heard and met with action. Please vote for Ms. Gloria Ray for Trustee in Alamo Colleges District #2! She is one with the people!"

“The ACCD District 2 needs an ethical and moral trustee. It needs a trustee who will always speak the truth to their fellow board members, the faculty, students and tax payers. It needs a trustee who will vote for the best interests of the students and the faculty of the ACCD, and not for their own self-serving interests. As a former Board President of Judson ISD, I must tell you, Judson ISD and ACCD District 2 are ethnically diversified districts. Trustees on these Boards should represent the populations they represent. There are nine trustees on the ACCD board. Not one is an African American. Ms. Ray has run organizations. She has volunteered her time to the community. She is the best candidate for the position of ACCD District 2 Trustee. I highly recommend her for Trustee District 2 ACCD.” 
- Steven Sayler
Former President, Judson ISD School Board
