TONY MARTINEZ AND ROSE GOWEN SEEK TO GIVE AWAY CITIZENS' ASSETS WITHOUT OUR CONSENT - IS DR. FRANCISCO CIGARROA A PARTY TO THIS ENDLESS RAPE OF BROWNSVILLE'S CITIZENS

On Tuesday's City Commission Meeting:
 
"D) ACTION on Resolution Number 2013-015, authorizing the donation of a 55.43-acre tract of land to the University of Texas System, designating signatories, and dealing with related matters. (Mayor A. Martinez and Commissioner R. Gowen)

ACTION on Resolution Number 2013-016, authorizing the donation of a 21.5-acre tract of land
to the University of Texas system, designating signatories, and dealing with related matters.
(Mayor A. Martinez and Commissioner R. Gowen)"

We know for sure that Tony has the vote of Estela Vasquez.  Any other commissioner who votes for this could find their term on the city commission short.

At this stage of the game we have no idea what UT is willing to offer Brownsville in terms of the new university.  UT is wealthy beyond imagination and this piss poor racist institution is asking that one of the poorest cities in the US give them land for a non specific university which may or may not even need this land.
I am sickened that UT with all of its wealth cannot seem to stop raping the people of Brownsville -
 
Any city commissioner who supports this must be removed.  We do not even know where UT is going to put the university and these welfare supporters for one of the wealthiest university systems in the world want to give away the assets of some of the poorest people in the country.
 
 
Tony Martinez and Rose Gowen are beyond salvation.

75+ acres is a drop in the bucket.

May 1970: UT System Board of Regents accepts 600 acres of land donated for UTSA near Interstate 10 and Loop 1604. The City of San Antonio donated this land. Now that area is thriving.

Informative comments are important to the process - thanks for the comment

But in this case the area around the land, unlike teh case of UTSA, is already developed - so unless you are going to go in and tear down people's homes - nothing will change in that context - and in fact if Brownsville history is any indicator - after all of the new construction which has already been done - UTB is still surrounded by old desperately in need of repair homes.

You need to read todays post - this is bigger than just the donation - it is undermining the entire process of bringing a medical school, community hospital, and UT money to the LRGV.

Why is a satellite campus to the main campus such a bad thing - people who actually understand modern education know that many of the course which will be taught in Edinburg will be taught via sometype video feed right into the Brownsville campus - this is exactly the way universities like Harvard are now teaching their courses away from Harvard.

This is about building something for the LRGV and not Juliet Garcia's and Tony Martinez's egos -

Finally, I know the UTSA area all too well - like any community built in the 70's it looks like a community built in the 70's - many of the homes are in need of repairs - so when you say thriving it is not like the 83 are in McAllen

This is not a fight for the medical school. It's to keep the satellite campus in downtown brownsville instead of the entire campus moving to north Brownsville near Rancho Viejo.

Were the citizens of SA well informed of the donation WITHIN A reasonable time frame before it was voted on? SA RECEIVES FUNDING FROM the UT System, we do not.
