Open Debate

Paula Favors, right, addresses the Wharton County Commissioners Court on Dec. 27 about the appointment of a new member to the Wharton County Emergency Services District No. 3 Board of Directors. There were three candidates for the position and the court voted to appoint Gary Bonewald.

Wharton County commissioners opted for a EMS instructor over a man at court volunteering his services when appointing an Emergency Services District No. 3 board member last week.

That vote took place after Manuel DeLuna spoke during public comment, introducing himself, offering his services and promising to be at meetings each month.
