FORT STOCKTON - Fort Stockton residents are fighting mad.

They say someone who was elected to represent them is taking a stab at their best interests.

The Fort Stockton City Council wants to keep their water from being shipped out.

They're angry over a proposed bill by Representative Tom Craddick that would create a new water district in Midland.

It would pump water from the Leon-Belding area, west of Fort Stockton.

The City Council met on Tuesday night, and came up with a resolution in hopes of keeping the Government or other private and public groups from taking it.
