Former Precinct 1 Commissioner Peggy Banales was recently appointed to the Nueces County Library Advisory Board by a unanimous vote of the Nueces County Commissioners Court.

Members of the board serve in an advisory capacity to the county's Keach Family Library in Robstown and do not have any official say in how the library obtains or spends any funding received by the county or through grants.

Banales was defeated by Mike Pusley in the November General Election.

Repeated calls to Banales for comment on the appointment were not returned as of Tuesday morning.
