Part 1 Interview

Helotes News:  How long have you been a resident of Helotes?

Matthew Merchant:  My family and I have been residents of Helotes since 2013. We moved here for many reasons, but the number one reason was family. I had retired from the Navy in 2012, my wife who also served on active duty in the Navy had an opportunity to move to the San Antonio area. I have three children from a previous spouse who lives here in Helotes. We did some research and couldn’t have made a better decision to move to Helotes.

Helotes News:  What do you enjoy about Helotes?

Matthew Merchant:  We enjoy the quaintness. The people are very friendly here. We enjoy Old Town and the feel of coziness from the businesses and the friends and neighbors who frequent them. I enjoy the history of Helotes as the Gateway to the Hill Country and all that has transpired at Floore’s!
