Perez began her governmental relations position with SAISD after her primary win. While district officials told the San Antonio Express News in 2012 that Perez would not act in a lobbying capacity, the move raised questions about a possible conflict of interest. Perez said the job would help her get a better idea of “how school districts run" and mainly focus on community and business outreach.
