A lot of people have been putting out word that the land around Lincoln Park goes for over $400,000 an acre.  I need any document which shows this. 

The UT Board of Regents are not going to be happy on Monday when they learn that once again to aid in his criminal conduct against the people of Brownsville Tony Martinez has violated the Open Meetings Act in order to execute on his criminal conspiracies to defraud the people of Brownsville for the benefit of one of the wealthiest university systems in the world.

The media blitz which I will release on Wednesday to the Austin media is coming along just fine.  I am trying to use video which tells a simple story of a people who have been stomped on by Austin for over a hundred years. 

Brownsville's parks are one of our gems.  Dean Porter Park is midway between my home and Bela's.  We love Dean Porter Park.  On the weekends it is always crowded.  Our weather is what brings so many people to retire here  I did not know Lincoln Park has an amphitheater - how sad the COB has not sponsored Shakespeare in the Park every summer as a way to promote literature and theater.

I need any document which shows the true appraised value of the land around Lincoln Park.  It will help the Austin news media to put into perspective the size of the theft by UT from some of he poorest people in the United States.

While I have no hopes of Tony Martinez appreciating yet another violation of the Open Meetings Act in how the Lincoln Park issue was placed on the agenda for Tuesday, the UT lawyers will certainly understand the PR nightmare they will face when a judge signs a TRO on Wednesday to stop everything. Such a TRO will only highlight for the Austin media how determined UT is to steal millions of dollars from some of the poorest people in the United States.

Send me the document at

Violating TOMA is a class c misdemeanor.

Da Saenz since at least last March has been on record that he is with us. I will give him credit on this one. He is standing for the right thing. I have no problem giving credit where credit is due.

My Questions is, under the TOMA as the county attorney he can file suit on Monday to stop the meeting and can in fact send a letter to the city commissioners that he intends to prosecute any city commissioner who participates in an illegal meeting.

This simple act by Saenz will send UT running for good.

No one will be able to take this away from him. The political capital he will get form this will be enormous.

If he would just then then the selective prosecution policy of his office - he will make a name for himself which is positive and will insure his reelection.

So is he willing to walk the walk or just speak out without action?

This is his one time to really shine in the eyes of the public and garner an unimaginable amount of political capital with the people

I don't know if it makes a difference, but the actual Resolution language does describe the conveyance as a sale, and makes no mention of the $6.5 million.

Does using the word 'sale' trigger further legal requirements?

BobbyWC said...

I'm not saying you are wrong, but I just read it 4 x and cannot find the word sale.

I could be missing it.

Check her and copy and paste wherein it says sale so I can look at it,

Again I am not saying you are wrong - I just want you help

In the binder file, the language of Resolution No. 2014-064 makes two references to it being a sale:

" WHEREAS, the University of Texas System has professed interest in purchasing the current park, thereby providing the City of Brownsville with the opportunity to relocate
park facilities elsewhere, thereby better serving the public;..."


" c) The City of Brownsville City Commission further authorizes City of Brownsville staff to commence negotiation with the University of Texas System for the sale of the
47.96 Acre Tract currently known as Lincoln Park..."

Is the binder considered part of the official Agenda, or is that where the sticking point would be?

Still, if the TOMA issue is resolved, are there more legal requirements that they have to meet if they call it a sale?

BobbyWC said...

I have to research that - because the "sale" language would most certainly trigger the public vote issue.

I have to check TOMA to see if the binder constitutes public notice for disclosure purposes.

That will have to wait until tomorrow.

I have help at the house and we are about to refloat my kitchen ceiling now that I have finally redone the spackling

Is it a sale or conveyance? Pat Ahumada presented a certified appraisal of $11M for the land in question to Rick Longoria at the end of the meeting.

BobbyWC said...

I am not guestioning the validity of Pat's appraisal - but he is an interested party and that fact will be used against us if it goes to the Austin press. I have a source telling me an appraisal was paid for by a disinterested party before this became an issue - I am trying to get that appraisal.

For TOMA all it says is conveyance - this violates TOMA - but they might have hung themselves because in the book provided to the commissioners it says sale which means there must be a public vote.

The attorney can take this information and stop the process in its tracks which will only serve to humiliate Tony Martinez and frustrate UT
