I am still waiting on the artwork I want to use with my post on Tony Martinez. If I do not get the artwork today, I will go with the post tomorrow one way or the other.

As to the claims that the city commissioners are bowing to Tony Martinez - it is merely the rantings of frustrated queens looking for satisfaction.  They need drama to keep their drivel going so they create stories.  The polls are fake, the interviews are fake, the associations are fake.  Brownsville needs critical  voices, not drama queens looking for satisfaction in all the wrong closets.


The agenda for BISD tomorrow night is most interesting for what is not there - the firing of Thompson Horton.  If we remember, Presas-Garcia as the only man on  the board shot her load before getting permission from her fellow board members to fire Thompson Horton.  The real story is why did she want to fire Thompson Horton.  Was she stopped because Escobedo realized firing Thompson Horton would only set the TEA on BISD.  The claim is Thompson Horton met with either  the TEA or some form of law enforcement office.  The meeting was not discretionary.  They had no choice.  The story is, this set Presas-Garcia going psycho.  Look people, if you are hit with a request from an investigatory agency whether in a civil or criminal context - you answer the request.  Only a complete moron like Presas-Garcia would force a subpoena.

Now the real question is, why has a bid not gone out for a permanent legal counsel?  Why is BISD 6 months with a  temporary legal counsel?  It is time BISD seek bids on a permanent counsel.


The only interesting thing on the agenda is item 7.   The issue is a "Fly Brownsville" travel policy for United Brownsville.  I have no idea what this means.  But the meeting is worth watching just to see what this is all about.

The issue of restoring the people's right to be heard is not on the agenda.  Jessica has had more than enough time to speak out on the issue.  It is clear she opposes speech.  Maybe it is time we recall Jessica as a pathological liar.  The claims Melissa has not spoken out on this issue is just false.  It is the same old drivel of the same old drama queens looking to make drama for no better reason than sport.  This does not help Brownsville's image.  People who help promote this drivel are the reason Brownsville will never thrive.  We can only hope rational people can see the drivel as made up drama.

Melissa Zamora  was the only commissioner to denounce the policy (turning the cameras off during public comment) when it was announced.  Facts do matter.  The problem is, she cannot get Jessica or anyone else to put this matter on the agenda.  Zamora cannot change the policy on her own.  But unlike Jessica she has spoken out on the policy.  This will be the last week John Villarreal and Estela Chavez-Vasquez will be able to clam they need time to study the issue.  We know for sure Tony Martinez opposes speech.  He will never do anything which angers Sossi or Cabler.  He has  made it know to both of these men - he is  their bitch.  The real problem is not commissioners following Martinez, it is Martinez making it known so long as he is mayor he will be Sossi's and Cabler's bitch.

I've asked that the broadcast of Public Comment be placed on the agenda. The City Secretary is waiting on a co-sponsor.

Yes, I've always spoken out against the cameras being turned off during Public Comment. In fact, I believe I was the only one who did so.
