New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - November 2, 1983, New Braunfels, Texas City denies charges made by MALDEF ByOYANNE FRY Staff writer The City of New Braunfels denies that its election system discriminates against minority voters, despite charges made by local Mexican Americans in federal court. The city also objects to the plaintiffs’ request for information from city records. A great deal of information has been requested, and City Attorney John Chunn claims that this would result in “annoyance, opression and undue expense” to the city.” Citizens Ezequiel Torres, Aguinaldo Zamora and Cristina Zamora, represented by the Mexican American I^egal Defense and Education League, filed a federal lawsuit on Sept. 23, challenging New Braunfels’ four district, three at-large election system. Chunn's first reply, submitted to U.S. District Court on Oct. 24, denies the minority group's allegations that elections in New Braunfels and Comal County are “polarized along racial and ethnic lines,” and that minority citizens have suffered “individious discrimination” in the areas of education, employment, economics and housing.” The city attorney also denies that the City Council maintains at-large-by-majority positions for the express purpose of “diluting, minimizing and cancelling out Mexican American voting strength,” as charged by MALDEF. Since filing the original suit, MALDEF has asked the city for certain information which it believes would relate to its case. Chunn says the information is irrelevant, and that in any case, the plaintiffs could get it on their own without the help of city personnel. In his Oct. 24 reply, he has asked the court for “protection” from this request. Among other things, MALDEF wants all correspondence between the city and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission since 1960, all documents generated in civil rights lawsuits since 1950, a record of annual budgets and expenditures since 1970, complete election records from 1950 to 1983, a list of all unpaved streets in New Braunfels and a record of every new sign or light put up since 1970. The plaintiffs also want a list of city officials and employees, with name, race, length of service and salary given for each one.

The review is one step in the process of building the new jail, according to Tim Darilek, assistant to the Commissioners Court. The drawings will be presented by architect Chris Di'Stephano.
