Jack Dawson latest to join race for Precinct I Commissioner slot
By DENISE DZIUK
Another person has announced that he will seek the office of County Commissioner in Precinct I, and has already filed the paperwork with the county clerk’s office to appoint a campaign treasurer.
Jack Dawson, of Canyon Lake, completed the paperwork to appoint his wife as his campaign treasurer. On this form, it states what position will be sought. County Clerk Joy Streater said the paperwork does not get a person on the ballot. A campaign treasurer must be appointed before anything else can be done. The candidate actually files to get on the ballot in December, and that is done with the politi
cal party he or she is affiliated with, she said.
“This is just a notice of intent to the public that they will run. They could decide ‘No, I’m not going to run’ long before their name gets on
‘I do not profess to be a politician, but with common sense and compassion for my neighbors in the community, this is the right decision.’
_— Jack Dawson
the ballot,” said Streater.
Dawson sent a letter to friends and neighbors, in which he stated his intention to run in
the Republican Primary in March. He said he believes he can represent the county with “genuine civic awareness, integrity, and a high degree of professionalism.”
“This is my first attempt at public office. I do not profess to be a politician, but with common sense and compassion for my neighbors in the community, this is the right decision,” he wrote.
Dawson is the second candidate to announce he will run for the office of County Commissioner, Precinct I, which is currently held by J.L. “Jumbo” Evans.
Evans announced in September that he would not be seeking re-election, and December 31, 1996, will mark the end of his 16 years as County Commissioner.ObituariesElvin Munson

Marion moves forward on water line project
By DAVID DEKUNDER
The Marion City Council on Monday night finalized approval of a contract that would allow the city to go out and bid for the construction of parallel water transmission lines for the city.
“The contract would get the ball rolling on the bidding process,” Mayor Glenn Hild said.
“It will get us going in the right direction because now our engineers and grant administrator can start designing and planning the project...”
The contract is for a $ 126,766 grant awarded to the city by the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs for the construction of the water lines.
The mayor said the city has been committed to match $25,000 in the terms of the contract. The contract expires on Aug. 15, 1997, unless it is extended.
In August, the city council gave approval to the construction of an eight-inch parallel transmission line that will connect a tank site located five miles out of the city near Green Valley Road to an underground storage tank located in the city.
The new transmission line will parallel the an already existing eight-inch line.
The city engineers. Ford Engineering, Inc. of San Antonio, will plan the design for the project.
Hild said the bidding process will probably take several months before it is done.
In other council action:
• Police Chief Max Wommack notified the council the police department had received 20 applications for an officer which will be hired under the COPS FAST grant.
Hild said he and the chief had narrowed the field to six qualified officers.
The council decided to let the chiel and Hild conduct the interviews.
Marion has been awarded the $18,389 three year grant by the U.S. Department of Justice.
• Accepted the 1995 tax roll from the Guadalupe County Tax Assessor/Tax Collector’s office, which showed the city had taxable property of $17,629,227.
• Voted for Sylvia Schlather as a director for the Guadalupe County Appraisal District for 1996-97.
