Friday against May or Paul Fraser requesting that alleged actions during the May 7 election be reviewed to determine whether or not those actions were illegal and if the results of the election are valid The petition requests that alleged illegal votes cast for Fraser be declared illegal and that Kahlig be declared the winner of the election orthat the May 7 election be declared Paul Fraser void and a new election be held Kahlig ran against Fraser for the Dis trict 4 city council seat Kahlig was defeated by 20 votes Fraser said he received notice of the suit at Friday while he was at a reception at Honors Hall honoring the Airman of the Quarter from Randolph Air Force Base Fraser are 12 or 13 alle gations in the suit ranging from whether or not votes were ever count ed to harassment of voters during early voting hours He explained that he has not sought legal council yet but instead he is concentrating on conducting city business Whatever comments were made about the way the election was conducted are totally unfounded Right now I will do what I normally do and go on with city claimed Fraser We have a council meeting Monday and a workshop preceding it I intend to spend the week end studying the Kahlig said all of his allegations are spelled out in the petition When you feel like youre right youre right and you should stand up and fight for what you believe in There were some major discrepancies in the election It is in the petition Those things shouldnt happen anywhere much less in New he said The petition states that irregularities in the conduct of the election were brought to Kahligs attention after the date of the election and it states that the irregularities could have resulted in a change in the number of votes It is the belief of the contestant that the irregularities did in fact affect the election so that the voters of District 4 in New Braunfels were not given a fair opportunity to express their the petition states If the election had been con ducted properly in all respects Contestant Kahlig would have received more votes than Contestee Fraser and Contestant would have been declared by the canvassing authority to be the winner of the general election for Dis trict 4 of the City Council for New Braunfels One of the allegations in the petition deals with the presiding judge of the polling place allegedly stopping his car during the drive from the polling place to the court house and rummaging through the backseat of the vehicle The petition also covers alleged harassment of an elder ly Hispanic woman and alleged actions by City Secretary Veronica Sarkozi Other allegations include improper handling of keys to the ballot boxes releasing the results of early voting to Fraser and extending of the legal dis tance between electioneers and the polling place on elec tion day The petition also states that the city secretary should not have served as the election judge because she is employed by the city council on which Fraser served and that 38 bal lots are unaccounted for in the final tally It also alleges that voters who did not live in District 4 voted in the District and that people who live in District 4 voted in another dis trict Other allegations are that people who requested mailin ballots never received their ballots and that people who mailed ballots to the city secretary were not includ ed on the list of people who voted in the election Kahlig claims all of the allegations in the petition are true and said he believes the election was not fair It has got to be fair to me to the people who voted in District 4 and its got to be fair to Paul Fraser If it is not fair to one group then it is not a good deal Somebody has to stand up and say it is not a good deal I am proud of what I have he said Just few days alter the May election Kahlig requested a recount of the votes which showed a change in the mar gin of Frasers victory by two votes For news advertising or
