HOW TO MAKE A QUICK $7,000.00 - OFFER TO DO BOGUS BUSINESS WITH THE CITY OF BROWNSVILLE - HEY GUYS I CAN GET YOU MICHAEL JACKSON FOR $25,000.00 - TRUST ME SORRY CHARLIE I CAN DO IT

This is Friday’s post. I have meetings all day and have an early day. I hope to have a movie review if I finish my meetings on time.

First a $26,000.00 check mysteriously falls into Mayor Ahumada’s business checking account. Now the city negotiates a contract with a non-existent booking agent for Boys II Men. At what point is this City Commission going to demand better accounting practices within the City of Brownsville?

I do not know who negotiated this contract. I do not care who it was, but "you’re fired" should be the next words out of City Manager Cabler’s mouth. The next act should be the City Commission having a special meeting if necessary to conduct a full investigation as to why accounting practices remain so lacked within the City of Brownsville.

With every day that goes by I just want to move away from Brownsville. I forward these stories to people outside of Brownsville and they always ask the same thing - how can it be so bad? Answer, because our City Commission is a joke - until we have a city commissioner willing to tell his/her fellow city commissioners that they will not be held hostage to future support in terms of support for their agenda items, and routinely go public with such threats nothing will change.

Everything within this hopelessly inept and corrupt City Commission will remain the same. Leadership is not about compromise or following, it is about leading. While I have very little use for this mayor, he has done more to lead this city than the rest of the City Commissioners combined. Yes he has made mistakes, but at least when it comes to leading he has no fears. It would be nice if just one City Commissioner would join our mayor in leading the city.
MOVIE CHOICES - "PUBLIC ENEMY" OR "ICE AGE"?
