Mr. Brandon Rodriguez is seeking appointment to Place 4 of the Kerrville City Council, a seat vacated last week by Mr. Gene Allen. We interviewed Mr. Rodriguez in our studio to find out more about his background and views on city politics.
In a surprise move yesterday, former councilperson for Place 4, Mr. Gene Allen, submitted his letter of resignation effective at midnight last night. He cited personal and family matters, as well as the changing political environment in Kerrville as reasons for his departure.
Mr. Allen has served Kerrville for about seven years as city council person, having been elected in 2010, and subsequently re-elected in 2012, 2014, and 2016.

As of today’s post, at least 76 contractors have downloaded specs and plans. Plans for the project can be viewed and downloaded here: http://kerrvilletx.gov/bids.aspx?bidID=73
