Just wondering what folks have heard who is going to run in the next Sheriff's Race in 2012.

Lots of word around town of who the folks might be ... Here is what I have heard:

Duane Villanueva (Karnes County Constable Pct. 3)
Steven Monsevais (Karnes County SO - Chief Deputy)
Terry Schmidt (Works at the TDCJ Prison)
Robert Ebrom (Works for State Pharmacy Board)
Donald Hons (Karnes County Constable Pct. 3)

Now, here is what I think ...

Duane Villanueva - No Way. Word is he wants to take away the 24 hour coverage and leave no coverage in all the cities, except Karnes City and Kenedy, which is covered by the city cops. He is also like 40 years old, never married, no kids, etc ... Family Man?? I think not. Wonder why?? Not to mention he has very little experience on the streets.

Steven Monsevais - According to most of the people who work for him, complete A-Hole. He screams, yells, belittles them, curses at them, etc ... Who wants a Sheriff that does that to their employees?? Word is his attitude is "My Way or the Highway". Sounds like a control freak to me...

Terry Schmidt - Think most Karnes County folks remember he screwed it up last time he was Sheriff.

Robert Ebrom - Not much to say about him. Don't really know him. I think he used to work here a long time ago as a Deputy or a City Officer.

Donald Hons - Well, his father was Eddie Hons, who was the Chief Deputy in Bee County forever. He is also a Constable in Falls City. He is the only Constable that really gets out there and actually works, besides just serving papers. He also runs his own side business, in addition to his other full time job. This guy is busy, and still finds time to come out and serve our community and county by keeping the streets safe.(My vote is with him if he runs!!!)

We all know that Jalufka screwed it up all to hell. Thing is, its not Jalufka, its Steven Monsevais. He's the one running things up there according to his employees.

We need a Sheriff that is gonna do something. There are folks running around Runge selling drugs all over the place. Not to mention illegal gambling over there that the JP Judge is involved in.

Also all these damn Mexican Mafia members running all over the place. Stabbing people, extorting them, threatening people to make them not say anything. Can we get some of these losers in prison please???

We need someone who will do what they say, given the fact that they are working without a lot of money that the soon to be ex county judge and commissioners won't give them. Take a PAY CUT commissioners. Ya'll get paid almost 40K a year to have 2 meetings a month!!!! WTF!!!

I have heard there is a division of the mexican mafia in your city, but I don't find any information on it. I had been looking at a job transfer and thought I'd prefer Karnes city over Beeville. Is there truth to the " Mexican Mafia running helter skelter in Karnes City?

Yeah we do have Mexican Mafia here. They leave the good people alone though. All they do is sell drugs in all of the bars here. Texas Bar, Kenedy Bar, Hanky Panky Bar, Desperado's, Coyote's Sports Bar, etc ...

Just stay out of the bars and you will be out of the way of the Mexican Mafia guys. They are mostly talk anyway, unless they are 5-6 deep then they may beat you up if you look at one of their women.

Dwayne need to get sheriff !!! Just because he isn't married or doesn't have kids doesn't mean anything !!! He is a tender , polite person that will do what's right for everyone !!!!
The present sheriff acts like he's god and does nothing for this county !!! He puts his duties on other people that should be doing it either !!!

Good luck Dwayne !!!!

I don't think it's called "mostly talk" I think Its just intemidation with a benefit of respect. And yes they do leave the good ones alone as long as u don't enter their world. So the choice is yours!! What side do u choose?? And u can't hate on them cause at times they're ones that have saved this town from other drama, but we tend to forget. But everyone likes to talk about the 'Bad'thngs. That's just how Kenedy is!! Think about it, all this drama here recently all leads to all these out-of-town horny wetbacks. I bet if if your mama or little sister were getting raped or beat up by one of those horny workers you'd wish the Mex.Mafia were there to beat him up. So there's a good and a bad thing to it, but that's just life. What doesn't have it's ups and downs.

You referring to them as "horny wetbacks" is inaccurate. For Your info a lot of them are hard workers and American citizens with the same rights that You have. It is a pity and a shame that You should express yourself like that. Most of them are there for work. They are not interested in your mom or your sister as you say. A lot of them never been to jail (unlike others). Most of them provide for their families. And they do decent and honest work. I think you are tryin to justify but You fall way short of that. Get Your facts straight and speak or write whenever You get informed.

Now i don't know what church you're going to, but my point is that even if they are legal or not,that does not hold them back from wanting to sleep with your mother or sister. Now back to reality, you have to agree that a man is a man and even though they provide their families ( cause i'm not saying they dont) even though they send money to their families they always keep extra for thieir little foreplay. But that's besides my whole point.

Well if you wish to speak about churches maybe You should tell me about Yours. It seems that You feel thankfull to have members of a violent, drug dealing, and criminal organization in Your town. Let me tell You that they are not there took your grass, clean up your streets, or flip Your burgers. Don't be naive. And I'm pretty sure that promiscuity was going on in Kenedy way before these workers even got there. And I'm pretty sure that Kenedy is not a town of saints. Kenedy was a dying town before all This work started. And those "horny wetbacks" and their money are helping Your lil town stay on the map. Be smart and look at the statistics. Your problem with drugs is a lot bigger than what You think. I can look at Kenedys demographics and its obvious that you have way bigger problems than these "horny wetbacks"

Half the crime and drama have been created by local people which is so sad. And as far as the mexican mafia the legit MM does not go around saying they are or bragging about being mexican mafia. These are just wanna-be's so to speak. Send all their asses to jail! JS

I think he has his hands full between rumors of drug smuggling and sexual harassment.. Rumor has it His poor wife left him after walking in on him and another man. Don't know if this is the guy we want. Thank god we kept him to just constable. Next time we need to get him away from our kids.
