      The first was her husband, Henry Cisneros, the city’s former mayor, who had launched his political career 32 years earlier by winning the same city council seat. Henry Cisneros () He was reelected twice, and in , as an independ¬ ent candidate, he was elected mayor. He was the First Mexican American mayor of San Antonio since Juan N. Seguin (see no. 12) in and the first Hispanic mayor of a major LJ.S. city.

      He was a Chicano activist in San Antonio, where he was born and raised; went to many of the same schools, the same Catholic high school -- Central Catholic High School, where Henry Cisneros went; where another important Mexican-American, Ernie Cortez, whom I write about in the book, also came out of Central Catholic. Willie did, too.

      Henry G. Cisneros has accomplished many firsts during his career as a public official. He was the first Mexican American to become mayor of a major United States city—San Antonio, Texas. He was also the first Hispanic American to serve as United States secretary of housing and urban development (HUD). As the first mayor of Mexican descent since Juan Seguín of the Texas Republic days, Cisneros symbolized a new inclusive political order. An equally visible break occurred with the increasingly prominent presence of Mexican American women in the political arena, signaling a significant change in gender roles.
