Nueces County Attorney Jenny Dorsey has asked to remove Drainage District No. 2 commissioner Jesus "Jesse" Rojas.

Rojas is accused of not living in the district for which he was elected.

He was representing Robstown while living reportedly in Banquete.

He was given until June 15 to resign or she would begin removal proceedings against him.

In February, Rojas admitted to KRIS 6 News that he did not live in his district.

Wednesday, Dorsey said she has new information, and that his residency is no longer clear.
