Agreed PG, but should one also be allowed to run for office if they do not live in the area of which the laws are enforced? Should a mayor/ City Council be able to put laws in place for a city but not have to live in that ... More ›

HTA, that is incorrect as the election is under the "Home Rule" statutes for municipalities and subject to City Charter as discussed here ad nausem. Your address according to your voter registration matching valid ... More ›

According to Floresville City Attorney Louis T. Rosenberg, because the election in Floresville is a special election, the filing deadline actually is Monday, March 10.

Darn typo. You only need to own a residence in the City Limits, you do not need to live there. The state has it set that way to make it easy for folks to sign up. That means someone could own a residence in the City Limits, let ... More ›
