Hearne economic developer suspended after texts surface

A Hearne City Council member has been the target of hateful texts.

HEARNE, Texas - An economic developer in Hearne is suspended for five days without pay after inappropriate text messages to a city official were made public.

In the messages, Kent Brunette encouraged Hearne City Councilman, Rodrick Jackson, to resign. The messages, some of which include curse words, also questioned whether or not the councilman lives in Hearne.
 
Jackson told KAGS news tonight that he his is disappointed with the punishment. The economic board made the decision to temporarily suspend Brunette earlier this evening.
