Is Juan Ortiz a relative of Danny and Dianne? Danny and Dianne are relatives to some Ortiz family in Floresville. It may be a different clan. Don't know.

Is that true that the City Attorney is advising the City Council on action to determine if Tomas Robles meets qualifications to run for mayor? Is that his role? Couldn't that cost the taxpayers money in the form of a lawsuits?

The blogs for meeting notices always get taken down after the meeting has passed. I imagine they are not set up to stay for extended periods of time. No black helicopters here for you conspiracy guys. Move along.

Mr. Groves, you already have my vote. Get yourself out there and talk to the citizens of Floresville. And if there is a Candidate's Forum, be sure and attend. Voters will respect you for that. Help us to SAVE FLORESVILLE.
