Aransas County Voters Coalition, a Political Action Committee for everyday citizens educating to defeat complacency, held a town hall meeting Monday, Oct. 5 at the First Assembly of God Church. More than 30 people were in attendance. A recording of the two-plus hour event is on the group’s Facebook page. Katy Jackson served as emcee. Speakers included Jackson, ACISD Trustee Bonnie Randall (how to help select a new school superintendent), Rockport City Councilman Bob Cunningham (how to be a more effective voice in government), Aransas County Navigation District (ACND) Chairman Malcolm Dieckow (current ACND plans), Kristie Rutledge, and South Rockport Neighbors’ George Riekers. The crowd took a short break after the speakers finished. A panel, including former hospital industry executive Jennifer Racette, Aransas County Commissioner Wendy Laubach, Andrew Kane, and Jeff Hutt answered questions for more than an hour about the three Aransas County propositions placed on the Nov. 3 ballot.
