The Evergreen Underground Water Conservation District election this May 9 is of concern to everyone in Wilson County, as voters will choose their representative for the next four years on the board, which oversees and protects Carrizo Aquifer groundwater for use by residents in the Evergreen’s four-county area.

To that end, voters in La Vernia, Stockdale, and Poth are to be reminded that although their cities are not holding elections this year, there still is an important election they should participate in: choosing their representative on the Evergreen board.

Incumbent Director Steve Snider, a retired Adkins resident who has been on the board since 1997, is facing opposition from Robert Leal of Floresville, a nursery manager.

Atascosa County’s current representative, Tommy Shearrer of Plesasanton, is being challenged by Larry W. Fox, also of Pleasanton.

Elections in Frio and Karnes counties have been canceled, as incumbent directors Fabian Jendrusch and Clifton L. Stacy did not draw opponents.

The polling location for the Evergreen election in Wilson County -- during both early voting and on election day -- is in the courthouse in Floresville. Until early voting ends Tuesday, May 5, voting hours will be from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. On election day, Saturday, May 9, the polls will be open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m.

It would be wonderful if people did vote according to the candidates qualifications, however, that is not what happens. If people voted based on qualificaton, we would not have the president we have now. Isn't Mr. Leal the mayor's ... More ›

Whoa with all of the negativity. We should just be looking at the two candidate’s resumes and qualifications. Reading the two resumes, it is fairly obvious that Steve Snider is the most qualified candidate. If Mr. Leal has ... More ›

No need to go negative with a bunch of innuendos and accusations. JUST CONSIDER QUALIFICATIONS AND THEN MAKE YOUR DECISION! Remember, voting is at the courthouse.

Voters may not realize that this election is an important one. One of the points made at the recent TEA parties was that people need to take an active role -- and that would begin with voting. Voters in Floresville have ... More ›
