LIV says MUCHAS GRACIAS to Fernando Centeno for giving us permission to reprint his guest opinion commentaries printed in the San Antonio Express News. They are listed below in chronological order from the latest to the earliest.
Fernando Centeno, who was born and raised in San Antonio, is a community planner and Harvard graduate who humbly calls himself a "practitioner". He has been in the trenches of San Antonio policy for 40 years.
Centeno wants to remove the most recently applied stigma to San Antonio as the "most economically segregated" metro area in the country.
Centeno teaches us that this term -- economic development -- has long been narrowly understood in business terms rather than in socioeconomic terms.
Only Centeno's writings do this argument justice. He loves hearing from others, most importantly, from those who wish to challenge his thinking.
Our comments section will allow you to dialogue with him through this webpage.
Note: We apologize for some missing text in several of these articles. We are attempting to correct this problem.

Note: LIV sees Centeno's work as complementary to the work of commercial real estate investor and whistle-blower, Brian Rodgers of Austin, to "make growth pay for itself". Visit our Costs of Growth page where we parked some of Rodgers' efforts.
