Lisa Marie Coppoletta, City Council place 4 candidate, addressed ASG with Mayor Susan Narviaz in the first installment of the series.

Coppoletta said her main goal as a City Council member would be to increase resident involvement through music and film festivals.

“I have a plan to capture a unique market through film production tax abatements handed down from the state legislature,” she said.

She said the surge in economy and employment would benefit San Marcos residents and students.

“This would also create a fast track program for students,” Coppoletta said. “This would also create an opportunity for jobs for the Texas State post-graduates working in production or on film sets.”

Coppoletta said she was opposed to increased water or electric bills that could affect local or retired residents on fixed incomes.
