To the Seriff of Jim Wells Co., please listen. You have so much drug seizure monies now, use some of that to help the school in Premont! Remember, Premont is part of your county too. You aren't thinking of buying more tahoes, I hope. How does the County Judge qualify for one, which he uses to drive his daughter from Premont to school in Kingsville at times???? Show Premont you do care about our school and community.

I know what it can be used for and one of those is security cameras in the schools. Premont's cameras were destroyed by vandals last year, so---
P. S. once again, how does a new Tahoe for the county judge qualify??

The vehicle was stopped by Brooks County Deputies. The money goes to them, not Premont, or Jim Wells.

oscar lopez only cares for himself. He is a greedy sob only worried about himself and dept. And talks very tuff on tv and when crooks go to jail the bond is super low so that crooks get out faster because he doesn't want overcrowded jail. Ask around and judge saenz is same, only cares for himself and alice and the heck with rest of county places. And judge is forever out of town guess in meetings, worse then obama and nothing gets accomplished for premont. Ask him what has he ever done for premont and schools, not a damm thing. He doesn't even attend board meetings nor city. He needs to go.
