Vote against admitting Haitians spurs march
By ROSE MARIE EASH Hsrakt-Zsttung
Mots than a dozen protesters marched in front of Sen. Bob Krueger’s office here Saturday, withdrawing their support of the lawmaker because of his recent vote against admitting Haitian HIV-positive refugees into the country.
The group, known ACT UP-Gulf Coast, was protesting a meeting between the New Braunfels senator and gay lawmakers.
According to Krueger aides, Krueger agreed to meet with Rep.
Glen Maxey of Austin and a group of gay state leaders, who asked for the meeting to express their concerns over the senator’s vote against Krueger gays in the mili-
tary and allowing Haitians with AIDS to immigrate.
In a written statement, the protesters said Krueger’s appointment is proving to be a
"death sentence” to those living with HIV.
Krueger spokesman Monte Williams in Austin said, "The problem is HIV-positive immigrants would strain an already overworked health care system. Immigrants with AIDS should not be allowed to permanently immigrate to this country. Health care for our citizens would suffer.” 4
According to their statement, ACT UP/Gulf Coast members are accusing Krueger of abandoning his principles in order to get re-elected.
They condemned his actions on the issue as "morally reprehensible” and "an affront to even a modicum standard of decency.”
Krueger’s spokesman said the group of gay leadara mooting with Krueger and Maxey had mixed reactions to Krueger’s explanations for his votes.
Krueger said ha fait it waa important that the military officials handle the issue of gays in the military themselves and, his vote on the Haitian issue was based on medical concerns for U.S. citizens.

A closed-door meeting of the Edwards Aquifer Agricultural Forum held here Thursday included San Antonio representatives for the first time, according to County Judge Carter Casteel.
Casteel said the meeting -— which was not open to the public — was held to discuss governments and boards for the management of the aquifer.
"Their overall purpose is to draft a piece of legislation that develops a plan for management of the Edwards,” Casteel said.
Although unable to attend the entire meeting, Casteel said she was Irritated in that San Antonio refutes to acknowledge Judge Bunion’s ruling.”
Although still anxious to work out bn agreement with all concerned parties including San Antonio over the management of the Edwards Aquifer, Casteel expressed exasperation with remarks like "we’re not sure he (Bunton) has authority to manage the aquifer,” which the judge said was made by San Antonio representatives.
Casteel said she and tha New Braunfels counsel, Bort Hooper, asked if the plan suggested by San Antonio would satisfy Bunion’s ruling. Casteal said she became upset at questioning of Bunion’s authority by tho San Antonio faction.
She said the proposal advanced by San Antonio representatives spoke only to the continuation of spring flow for tho San Marcos springs — completely ignoring tim Comal Springs.
Tha forum was sat up by Son. Ken Armbrister, D-Victoria, and Sen. Bill Sims, D-8an Angelo, and initially involved only the irrigators and agriculturists west of San Antonio and those in the Guadalupe River basin.
The event was to bring the opposing groups together for tho common good, according to Doug Miller, who represents New Braunfels in matters regarding the Comal Springs.
Councilman Jamas Goodbread announced Friday that ha will seek re-election to tho New Braunfels City Council in May.
In a written statement, Goodbread said serving the citizens of Now Braunfols "has always bean a matter of groat importance toms.
"Upon my re-election, the people of our city can ba assured that they will continue to have a councilman who truly carts about their interests.
Among the issues the incumbent councilman said ha would address during the campaign were election of tho mayor, toxic waste burning and taxation.
seek new term
"I strongly believe the citizens should elect their mayor, lot there be no doubt About that,” Goodbread said.
"We have made strides in opening city government to tho people and that is precisely why citizens communications must remain in tha early portion of tho council’s agenda.
"Wa must make every effort to keep our taxes low,” Goodbread said. "Wa should continue to promote efficiency of operations and tho cutting of expenses rather than simply increasing taxes "
Goodbread, a 22-year city resident, is the past owner of Hanna Hardware and a member of the numerous civic organizations.
