SOS: " A candidate for trustee must be a resident of the trustee district the candidateseeks to represent."

It also says, "(A Trustee) vacates the office if he or she ceases to reside in the trustee district he or she represents."

That is the LAW.

Garcia resigns as Del Mar regent

— Linda Garcia resigned from her Del Mar College District 1 Board of Regents seat Wednesday, board president Chris Adler said Wednesday.

Adler said Garcia stated in her resignation letter — dated Aug. 1 — that she is pursuing a career opportunity outside of Corpus Christi that forces her to resign the seat.

District Attorney Carlos Valdez last week filed a lawsuit against Garcia seeking her removal from the seat. The suit alleged Garcia did not meet residency requirements to run for the seat and that her application for candidacy contained false information.

Adler said the board will research its options before taking action on the vacancy.

Seems like Ms. Garcia is always seeking opportunities outside of her area, including running for public office where she didn't belong. Hopefully the Board of Regents is smart and puts Gabe back into the seat Garcia clearly cheated him out of. Gabe was cheated, not unseated.

Does this mean the lawsuit goes away?

Gabe does not live in the district.

He did not live in the district when he was a regent.

He used his parents home and photography studio.

Gabe was voted out.

Yeah, Linda really cheated, she had the SOS confirm her application and she did live here in the district when she applied. That is the law.

After they lost, they went crying to Carlos Valdez, do something help us.

That is DMC for ya, always changing the rules.

We can whine about Linda all day long but I bet not one of you will say one word about this:

So do you guys approve?

How bout you Curtis?

Gabe dont micromanage, but he can go all out when it comes to cheating.

I had my wedding pictures done by Mr. Rivas at HIS studio, his home...need to get your facts right instead of belly aching, besides why would Linda Garcia run in the first place, Her brother sued DMC...kinda of unethical on her part, and the bolonga about 'clerical error' with her application and voter registration...those documents are affadavidts stating that what she put on those documents are true, unless she is able to be in two places at once...she lied....Good riddance!

You didn't know there are pictures / video of his vehicles and his family at an address outside of the district. His family does not live there. Belly aching, now who is the one that was whining ever since Gabe was voted out? Linda Garcia's brother sued DMC because of the hit man hired by Elizabeth Reynolds who was spurned by Ann Matula and DMC officials. DMC had agents following him and making death threats. Linda and Al have both received death threats after she was elected and before. Unethical is the Powers that be at DMC. Linda is part of the solution. DMC would never have been sued as many time as it has been sued recently if it was not for the pick and choose clique at DMC.

The law first of all it says:



§ 31.001. CHIEF ELECTION OFFICER. (a) The secretary of
state is the chief election officer of the state.

The law that governs DMC regarding Regent elections is:



A candidate for
trustee must be a resident[0] of the trustee district the candidate
seeks to represent. A trustee other than a trustee serving in
accordance with Subsection (g) of this section vacates the office
if he or she ceases to reside in the trustee district he or she

The Secretary of State made a ruling that this is the controlling law AND it is the only law any regent has ever been elected under.

Linda Garcia lived in the District when she filled out the Application. That is the law.

Now when these rotten people lost to a little person they want to call on their friends in Government lile AG Abbot and Carlos Valdez.

How did Valdez become involved? Did the AG ask him or did he have two signed affidavits making a complaint. I say he had neither.

The application and errors within it (if there are errors) have no bearing on period of time she lived in the district. And yes you can be in two places at once according to Texas Law

These documents contain text of correspondence sent by TxDOT to the county tax assessor-collectors, statutory agents who provide vehicle registration and titling services for citizens in Texas. This information is provided to apprise the general public of issues affecting the state’s vehicle titling and registration process.

Registration and Title Bulletin #036-05
Date: April 12, 2005
To: All County Tax Assessor-Collectors
Category: Policy and Procedure
Subject: County Residency Requirements
To clarify county residency requirements addressed in RTB #011-05.
The intent of RTB# 011-05 was to address title applications processed with addresses outside of Texas. Some part-time residents, including "Winter Texans" and visitors to the state who purchase a vehicle in Texas, use an out of state address on Texas title applications.
"Winter Texans" or other part-time residents are defined as persons who have dual residency in Texas for part of the year and another jurisdiction for the remainder of the year, provided they do not establish gainful employment or enter into business in Texas. Based on an opinion of the Department’s Office of General Counsel, applicants may title and register a vehicle in Texas provided they have a Texas address. Visitors to Texas without a Texas address are not allowed to title and register a vehicle in Texas. All other county residency requirement procedures remain in place for leased vehicles, military personnel, out of state corporations, bonded title applicants, college students, and reciprocity agreements between other jurisdictions.
When processing an Application for Texas Certificate of Title, Form 130-U, establish that the applicant’s residence is within your county. If the customer has dual residency, make certain the applicant uses the established residence within your county on the application.
If you have any questions or need any additional information, please contact your local Vehicle Titles and Registration Division Regional Office. You may also call Mike Craig, Deputy Director, or me at (512) 465-7570. Thank you very much.

In some cases the Registration and Title Bulletins (RTB) contain attachments. If you require a copy of the original signed RTB and the attachments, please email your request with the RTB number to VTR Info Request/Open Records. Repeat requests are subject to charges in accordance with Open Record policies. A subscription service is also available for an annual fee of $250. Subscribers will automatically receive all RTB mailings as they are issued.

It is called Dual Residency.

It is OK, we practice Due Diligence and you will realize that you side with some really rotten people.

Why not let your wife or your daughter work for DMC in house counsel?

Would you?

Enrollment is down and they wonder why?

Also, my point was with Gabe's auxiliary residence's and his personal issues is; even though we knew this information we felt as long as he had ties to that community and he was there much of the time it was a non factor. In our opinion, our childhood home will always be our residence; as long as family members reside there. We might not sleep there, we still get mail there, people still call (for us) there and we hold it close to our heart. We still consider our Mother's residence our home even though we might live in Kleberg County or we live in Buckingham Estates whatever it is still our home.

There is not a time period requirement for living in the district.

There is a 6 month requirement that we reside in the state of Texas.

Now, when Gabe loses; the rules get changed after the fact.

One or two of our state reps did not live here one was living in Austin but had a house here in the District. Another ported in from the Military industrial complex.

Brent Chesney did not live here and I did not see Carlos Valdez strong arming him off of the Council. He served for quite a while after he no longer resided here in the District.

It cant be a selective pick and choose application of the law and that is what is occurring.
