Precinct One Candidates Debate Over Ineligibility
Constable candidate Abraham Diaz has filed a motion with the 4th court of appeals to declare Rodolfo Rudy Rodriguez ineligible to run for the office of constable in precinct 1.
The motion was filed Tuesday.
Abraham Diaz claimed he has documents that prove Rodolfo Rodriguez is ineligible to run based on his residence.
But the current constable said he has lived in his precinct for several years now, and has the documents to support his defense.
Abraham Diaz/Candidate: "Since 1996 to the present he has been claiming homestead tax exemption at 406 La Herradura which is located off of Mines Road, which is clearly in precinct 4 and has done this under oath. Also at 1413 Juarez he has the following homestead exemptions: over 65 years of age, disable vet homestead under his father's name. This is the address he claims to reside. These are just some of the documents that we have provided."
Rodolfo "Rudy" Rodriguez\Constable: "This is something where they say that I don't live in this residence and I live in, that is very hard. How can they say that? How can they prove it? My driver's license is in my residence, 1314 Juarez, my voter registration is in 1314 Juarez, I pay bills, that is my primary residence."
The motion was filed early Tuesday and is currently in San Antonio, Texas waiting review.
