Two things were quite unusual during last week’s regular session of Grimes County Commissioners Court. First, two citizens voiced support for the same agenda action; and then even more unusual, the court unanimously approved it.
Following an audio visual presentation by the County Election Administrator’s Office on applying to make grimes into a so-called super voting center this fall, the first to speak in favor of it was regular Commissioners Court Attendee, Gary Williamson.
Agreeing with Williamson, County GOP Party Head Joe Fauth said this move would primarily be a convenience to the voters as well as helpful because the county is continuing to grow; adding 874 new voters just last year.
Except for the county judge, who was absent, all voted in favor of requesting to be a super voting center county this November, and held a public hearing in the Commissioners Courtroom Wednesday morning and heard what the public thinks about this move.
Navasota News was at the public hearing and you’ll hear about it right here on Navasota News.
