COMMISSIONERS CONTEMPLATE MOUNTING LEGAL EXPENSES

A student of body language would read much into the postures and facial expressions of the Willacy County commissioners monday as they contemplate $81,721 in legal bills for defending elected county offiicials against actions started by District Attorney Juan Angel Guerra.

Left to right are commissioners of: Pct. 4, Aurelio "Keeter" Guerra (brother of the district attorney who initiated the actions against other elected county officers); Pct. 3, Emilio Vera, Jr. (president pro-tem, in the absence of county judge Eliseo Barnhart); Pct.2, Erasmo "Eddie" Chapa; Pct. 1, A.J. Cantu.
