Phalr Four Sections, 66 Pages Commissioner race shapes up By MARK WARNKEN Staff Writer One Comal County Commissioners Court race is already beginning take shape, with Precinct 3 incumbent Pat Hernandez intending to run for reelection and challengers Cristina Zamora and Ramon Chapa Jr. riding on floats announcing their candidacies in Friday’s Comal County Fair parade. Incumbent Precinct I Commissioner J.L. “Jumbo” Evans, a Republican, also plans to run again. Because many people have asked, Evans decided to make public his plans to run for his fourth four-year term but preferred to wait on talking about specific ctin-paign issues until the election draws nearer. Official candidate filing begins in early December. Next November’s general election follows the party the primary elections next March. Hernandez, a Democrat, said many of his constituents have encouraged him to run for a second term. He said will continue trying to keep the county’s property tax rate low while doing as much as possible for the residents of his precinct and the entire county. “I'm beginning to know the Commissioners Court very well, and there’s a lot of things still to be done. I hope to accomplish many of them,” he said. Hernandez, a longtime local businessman, said he makes his office a full-time job and lets his family run the upholstery business. “I’m willing lo make die time to do what’s needed, such as meetings and conferences, in every arca that pertains to the county,” he said. Chapa, in his sixth year on the New Braunfels City Council, currently serves as mayor pro tem His council term expires next May. On Thursday, Chapa filed a document with the county clerk’s office naming Jesse Camareno as his cam paign treasurer. His campaign manager is Robert Perez. Chapa said he plans to file in the Democratic primary. “I’m running on my own merits, and the agenda that I had set for city government is almost complete.” said Chapt, a city of San Antonio employee. “Therefore, I’m bringing a new agenda to the county, no matter who else runs. “I highly respect the current commissioner, but I leel a younger voice is needed on the Commissioners Court, and I see myself as a proven leader,” he said Zamora, a local insurance agent for 25 years and New Braunfels resident for 33 years, recently filed a document with the county clerk’s office naming Val dom ar Espinoza as her campaign treasurer. She too plans to run in the Democratic primary. “My reason for seeking the office of county commissioner is to represent all the people of the county.” Zamora said. “Because of my community involvement, I have a strong understanding of the community, "Also, as a mother of five and a grandmother of five, I have a strong belief in family values,” she said. EUWD board votes to intervene in Sierra Club lawsuit The Edwards Underground Water District board of directors has voted to intervene in the federal lawsuit filed by the Sierra Cub against the U.S. Department of the Interior to protect endangered species living in the Comal and San Marcos springs. The board on Thursday voted 7-2 to intervene on neither side after a presentation by legal counsel Gilbert Vazguez, who said such a move would allow the district to submit evidence, present witnesses and crossexamine witnesses. Comal County board member Kenneth G. Ikels on Saturday said the board decided to intervene on neither si dc because the district doesn’t necessarily agree with everything the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Department or the Sierra Club proposes. “The Edwards Underground Water District has the statuary authority to preserve and protect the aquifer, and the board felt we needed to go ahead and make our ideas on a settlement known to the court,” Ikels said. The suit, filed by the Lone Stai Chapter of the Siena Club iii U.S. District Court in Midland, seeks to force the Interior Department and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to develop a plan to protect through the Endangered Species Act four endangered or threatened species — the fountain darter, the San Marcos gam-busia, Texas wild rice and the Texas blind salamander — that depend on the Edwards Aquifer According to the Sierra Club, such a plan would require regulation of pumping to maintain a certain level of spring flow. Hic New Braunfels City Council and the New Braunfels Utilities board of trustees recently voted to pool their resources lo seek intcrvcnor status on the side of the plaintiffs. The Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority has been allowed to intervene on the side of the Sierra Club, and three crop irrigators from Uvalde and Medina counties will participate on the side of die Wildlife Department.
