FLORESVILLE -- City councilman and businessman Jim Miller has filed a complaint with the Secretary of State’s Office ahead of a special election related to the county’s proposed issue of $8.5 million in certificates of obligation. The county is asking voters to approve issuing the debt, which would be used to fund various capital projects, including restoration and renovation of the Wilson County Courthouse.

Miller alleges that the proposition is “misleading, if not outright fraudulent” to the county’s voters. This, after Wilson County Judge Marvin Quinney, at an Oct. 16 Floresville Chamber of Commerce luncheon, told those in attendance that there likely will not be enough funds left to pay for construction of an animal shelter or for road repairs -- despite these being two of the five items for which the proposition states that the funds would be allocated. This echoed comments by Wilson County Pct. 2 Commissioner Paul Pfeil during the Oct. 14 commissioners court meeting. Video recordings of both events are available at wilsoncountynews.com.

The special election is the purpose of a community forum Tuesday, Oct. 22, at 7 p.m. in the American Legion Hall in Floresville. The event is sponsored by this newspaper and by the Texans for Constitutional Government.

A few years ago quinney was trying to abolish the county library. Why all of the sudden does he want a new library with a cafe?
