Ms.- I agree, but this election is indicative of a larger problem here in Texas. No sense of civic responsibility. My mom comes from a small farming community in central MN. The county and even state regularly expect 50-70 percent voter turnout even in local elections. What did we manage in the last two? Maybe 5-10 percent. Of that number we are lucky to get 30-40 people at the county GOP meetings and my wife and I are the youngest by 30 years. Lets face it, many talk a big game here in Texas and in Wilson County, but unless an issue threatens your livelihood most people don't give a hoot. I thought a change at the county's highest level might inspire a different mentality over time.

Turning the courthouse over to historical society is a horrible idea. Every urban planner and businessman can tell you that the best way to preserve a historic building over time is to make it relevant and useful through constant occupancy. Not to mention that the historic square in Floresville is the most underutilized resource in the county, and could revival the tourism trap of Gruene with some careful planning. We need a diverse economy and tourism would help greatly with that goal. That will never happen if the county leaves the building vacant except for weekend tours.
