Growing up in Corpus Christi, Aaron Franco often came to Victoria for baseball games with his family. He never thought one day he’d live here.
But not only does he live in Victoria now, he is also one of five candidates running to represent District 3 at City Council. Franco first ran against incumbent Jeff Bauknight during the May election. After winning reelection, however, Bauknight announced he would be running for mayor, forfeiting his seat on Council. A special election to fill the position will be held July 3.
