FLORESVILLE -- Mayoral candidate Johnnie Rene Gomez soon will have his day in court to answer to the charge of driving while intoxicated.

Gomez was arrested on Dec. 30, 2011, in Bexar County at 12:39 p.m. A court date of Nov. 26 is set for Gomez’s DWI case.

There is no charter provision which forbids a candidate with a pending misdemeanor from running for office. However, an investigation into Gomez’s tax history shows him to be indebted to three separate entities within Wilson County since 2004.

Records indicate Gomez owes the city of Floresville $119.56, Floresville Independent School District $599.28, and Wilson County $718.84, all for property described as Fair Park Sub, Block 3, Lot 3. The total owed to all three entities is $1,437.68.

This is according to information obtained from the Wilson County Tax Assessor/Collector’s office. Further investigation revealed no such debts for any of the other city candidates.

The Floresville City Charter, section 3.02, states that candidates for public office must not be delinquently indebted to the city of Floresville. Under this provision, Gomez’s seat may be declared vacant and the council may fill the vacancy as set forth in section 3.06 of the charter.
