Desi will help San Antonio and District 118 continue its strong and positive growth!

More Importantly, he is excellent at bringing people together and bridge divisions - just witness the wide range of people who will endorse his candidacy.

I’ve seen Desi fight for San Antonio families for years at the Courthouse.

Desi knows the law and he will bring that same fight and knowledge of the

law for our families in Austin.

In my opinion, Desi Martinez is the best choice to represent District 118 as our State Representative. His Qualifications and Dedication to the community is what sets him apart.

Desi Martinez is the clear choice to represent the citizens of District 118.  He’s proven himself to be a champion of the people by successfully advocating and fighting for the rights of many throughout his career.  Having had the honor of working alongside Desi and seeing him in action, I have no doubt that he’ll bring the same passion, drive, and commitment to Austin, that’s made him successful  over the years.  I further believe Desi’s legal training and expertise has prepared him well to represent the people of District 118 and he receives my unwavering endorsement.

Desi is a staple of community stewardship for D118th.  He, selflessly, helped multiple patients at Casa Salud Family Medicine Clinic who could not afford care during the hardships of the pandemic. He is a leader who steps up and steps in when called upon. This man has already been doing the work at the micro level where it counts the most: to and for the people.

I want Desi Martinez as my next State Representative for District 118. He is somebody with the core values of integrity, honesty, and isn’t afraid of hard work. I want someone I know I can depend on. I want somebody who will listen to my issues and work to resolve them. Desi Martinez is this person. He has always been a fighter of the people, and for the people. Obtaining justice for his clients has always been his top priority. Desi Martinez, wholeheartedly, has my endorsement.



"I believe Desi is the most qualified, hardest working candidate for the Texas House of Representatives, District 118. He is knowledgeable about issues that impact District 118, and San Antonio . I strongly recommend Desi and give him my full endorsement."

Our healthcare has never been more important than it is now. Since COVID, we can not wait for healthcare coverage. I’m voting for Desi because he will fight for medicaid expansion.
