Schwab to run again for Precinct 4 commissioner
Morris “Moc” Schwab filed Friday with the Republican Comal County Chairman to seek re-election to a second term as Comal County Commissioner for Precinct #4.
“The court has made a lot of progress over the past three years and I want to continue to contribute my leadership and experience towards making New Braunfels and Comal County a great place to live and work,” said Schwab.
Schwab cited a strong voting record and a dedication to public service as his main reasons for seeking re-election.
“Our county taxes are among the lowest in the state and the services our citizens receive have improved steadily,” he said. “I’ve dedicated a good
portion of my lifetime to public service and I still have the desire to serve our citizens. It takes a team approach to get things done on Commissioners Court and I’ve proven that I can work with the diverse interests of the citizens of our county.”
A lifelong Comal County resident, Schwab, 61, resides in the Canyon Lake area. In addition to his term as Commissioner for Precinct #4, Schwab served two terms as a board member for the Comal Independent School District and was the first Fire Chief of the Canyon Lake Area Volunteer Fire Department. He is a member of the First Protestant Church, the New Braunfels Rotary Club and the Comal County Republican Men’s Club.

Dynacast to begin new work at N.B. plant
Dynacast North America will introduce an aggressive program to produce custom precision diccast components from B-390 aluminum alloy at its New Braunfels plant.
Keith Thompson, President, reported that Dynacast will offer design and fabrication services to exploit the properties of B-390 aluminum for many products that require components with high heat resistance and good wear properties.
This addition to the Dynacast family of custom diecasting processes results from the acquisition in August of Lone Star Diecasting Corporation of New Braunfels.
Now known as Dynacast/Lone Star, this facility has long specialized in custom design and fabrication of B-390 components, with particular attention to parts for lawn and garden power tools.
Market analysis shows that operating demands similar to such tools can be found in “dozens and dozens of end products, even those with quite different characteristics,” Mr. Thump
He pointed out that the successful use of B-390 aluminum for such automotive components as automatic tran-mission systems “demonstrates its toughness under exceedingly difficult conditions”
The alloy’s most significant prop erty is a high silicon content, generally ranging from 16 to 18 percent, that assures superior resistance to wear and high temperatures.
Dynacast is the world’s largest fabricator of precision components with 27 facilities in 18 countries. North American headquarters are in Yorktown Heights, NY.

Annnnnnd In this Corner
Having been a Republican since the first ballot I ever cast I can not say that I have been particularly happy with the way my candidacy has been received by the local GOP hierarchy but at the same time I have always been true to the principals of my party and would never change for the sake of political expediency (as have some in this campaign). I have been admonished to not take a "negative" posture toward my opponent personally and I have tried hard not to do so but I was disappointed when, at out first opportunity to meet one-on-one in discussion of the issues, my opponent chose to attack me personally.
If my opponent finds it not to her liking that I have criticized her performance or that of her Court so be it but please let her be reminded that at the very heart of democracy is the citizens right to openly express his or her dissatisfactions with their government. I have repeatedly offered to meet in open discussion of the issues. She has chosen to ignore my invitations. When she is ready to meet in open forum so am I but for now, let’s set the record straight early on in this campaign:
Let mc say up front that I am not an experienced professional politician. I am not as polished in public speaking as my opponent, I haven't had the advantage of standing before a classroom for years developing my delivery and I am not trained and skilled as an attorney with years practicing how to present things in ways they want them to appear regardless of the facts. I am a businessman who has learned the value of honesty, dependability, the value of the hard earned Taxpayer Dollar and the absolute wisdom of our PEOPLE through years of hard work in the private sector of our economy.
If she can show me where I have ever criticized the U.S. Supreme Court or where I have ever attacked any School District (as she claimed on the radio) I'll personally gather 500 beer cans from the Guadalupe River which she claims to have cleaned. I would also say to my opponent that she indeed knows nothing of what I may or may have not done to contribute to the betterment of my community.
There are some of us who do things because they are right not because we want or need the ego
stroking of public applause.
This should be a campaign of ISSUES not personal attacks. For now let's start with her claim of Fiscal Responsibly. My opponent both as President of the Comal Independent School District and as Comal County Judge claims to have been the protector of the Taxpayer. We all know what happened to the School Budget under her leadership so let's look at her first 3 years in Commissioner's Court.
Revenues: General Fund Expenses: General Fund
NET Revenue: $ 68,419 <$1,398,050> <$ 395,946> <$1,308,411>
(Source: Official 1993 Comal County Adopted Budget & Prior Year Audits)
FACT QUESTION: The last year we ran a surplus in our General Fund was the year before my opponent took office. The Total NET DEFICIT in our General Fund for her first 3 years in office is $3,102,407.00. Other than extraordinary income like jail residents (which could disappear with each new jail being built in the country right now), how does my opponent intend to make up these massive DEFICITS to our General Fund?
