Meet Jalen McKee-Rodriguez!

He serves as a San Antonio city council member for District 2. Jalen McKee-Rodriguez is an educator who has committed to serving and empowering the community through representative policy-making. As the son of two veterans, and the oldest of three children, he was raised to value service to others, empathy, and integrity.

Two years after graduating from the University of Texas at San Antonio, Jalen decided to continue living by family principles by working at Sam Houston High School as a high school math teacher. Through working closely with students and families in District 2, it became clear how heavily the environment impacts a child’s future — how their housing, access to transportation, and access to recreational activities plays a huge role in these critical years of their lives. These observations are what inspired Jalen to run for city council and to make a difference for students and their families outside of the classroom. The Councilmember knows good representation is key for good policy – and listening is what is necessary for good representation.
