Our friends who are relocating to the Corpus area inquired about Rockport. We never made it up that way. They are retired so will not be commuting to a job. Do they have an HEB, Walmart and clinics there? Any other info on Rockport would help as well. Thanks

I have lived in Rockport for 20 years ONLY because my wife did not want to move due to her family. We are now moving. I would recommend not moving here. You might think it's nice when you visit as I did. But once you have lived her for a while and you still can't see what is going on it's because you don't want to see or you love to use drugs like our law enforcement and teachers do. Crime is insanely high and corruption is BAD. I posted on Rockport last week on the things that went on. You can find the post. It is titled Rockport...Ugh! I know there are problems with any town but Rockport is out of control.

John, have you contacted the State Attorneys office? If you have proof of these crimes taking place and you have failed to report them, you may be as guilty as they are. You keep spouting off about all this corruption and stuff.. if it is true and you have proof, do something about it.

Wow. I thought I had your support Muhnay.

This place is very corrupt and most people know it. They just refuse to believe it, are involved in some way or love the fact that they can get access to any drug anywhere and get away with it.

This area in general as been investigated before and is under investigation currently also. But you know how politics are.

I have no reason to lie about this area or any other area. What would I gain? Nothing.

Believe what you wish. That is your right. All I am trying to do is help people. I would hate people to move here and raise their children in which drugs are excepted.

You have my support. I never said I did not believe you. I was merely saying that if its that bad and you have proof, do something about it and make the area better.

I have not lived in Rockport, but I have visited it many times.. and liked the place. Many of the people I spoke with there old and young alike said they loved it there and would live no other place. Never did anyone mention the corruption you have.. so either they did not know, its not as bad as you say, or does not effect everyone, only those in the circle. I don't know why any of the people I spoke with would lie or keep info from me either.. so understand I have opinions from you and others in the area, and I have to take all that and form an opinion of my own.

I have good friends that live there. Like any other town, you're going to have good and bad. You will also have people who will see only what they want to due to various circumstances. There is no place that is 100% perfect, and due to Rockport's increasing popularity, they could very well be experiencing some administrative growing pains.

As for my friends, they live in Key Allegro and they love it. They left the DFW area about 5 years ago and never looked back. But then, their livelihood is spent fishing and boating, and they like the small-town feel. We've been down a few times and like the vibe it gives off.

Do all the research you can, visit as many times as possible, and get a good feel for it. Good luck!

I use to own a business that catered towards the people in Key Allegro and I got to know most of them first hand. Not all mind you but most of them. Everyone of them that I knew invited me over to their house to do cocaine. Dead serious. Like I have said before. When I first came here I enjoyed it. Then I became very active in the community and got to know many, many people very well and learned the truth about this town. I guesss some people might not know what is going on but everyone that I have ever met that has lived here and is active in the community sure knows. If anyone wants to know what goes on here you can pm me. That is the only way I will tell you more. My own son's have had to go through some of it. Like my youngest son's bus driver going on a shooting spree at school. For those of you that said it never happened yes it did. There is a mobile home park to the left of the school and houses across the street and everyone home heard the gun shots and people WERE shot.
