The woman who the Bryan city council wants the Attorney General’s office investigate her residency was “very pleased” to see the governing body take that action.
Hall says she gave paperwork to city officials as well as the Brazos County District Attorney’s office, which she says contained opinions from the AG and the Secretary of State’s office allowing her to choose her permanent residence.
Karen Hall says her temporary home is in the Kurten area where she is caregiver. Her permanent residence is a little RV near Highway 21 and Marino Road.
Hall, who led the Citizens For Bryan petition drive to ask voters to make three changes to the city charter, says the AG probe is the council’s way, in her words, to “muddy the waters as we get to November”.
Bryan voters will decide November 4 whether to ban relatives of council members from being hired or appointed to city positions, whether council members should be banned from voting on matters when campaign donors contributed more than $250 dollars, and whether council members should be banned from mentioning their position when campaigning for other political candidates.
