ROCKPORT - An effort is underway to remove the Aransas County Attorney from office.
KRIS 6 News has obtained a copy of a petition filed at the Aransas County Courthouse by the District Attorney on behalf of three citizens, two of which are private attorneys.
They want County Attorney Richard Bianchi to resign because he is running for County Judge.
We spoke with Bianchi, who announced his candidacy back in June. He says he's required by law to retain his position until a replacement is elected.
Bianchi is running against the incumbent, County Judge William Adams.
The district attorney declined to comment on the matter.
