I am writing to ask my fellow residents of Precinct 3 in Comal County to take advantage of a rare opportunity. Let’s elect Colette Nies as our county commissioner. I call it a rare opportunity because it would be difficult to find a person more qualified to work with the other commissioners …

Precinct 1 Commissioner Donna Eccleston has a history of unresponsiveness when it comes to representing her constituents and Comal County citizens. During her years on Commissioners’ Court, countless emails and calls to her have gone unanswered. While she wrote a letter to TCEQ in 2017 reque…

I’m writing in response to the Oct. 1 Guest Column by Don Volz, but I have no interest in denouncing his ridiculous claims about a political party that I align with, and I’m not going to risk my blood pressure getting elevated over his use of the God I worship against me. “Love one another” …
