1045 E. WASHINGTON STREET - WHY IS THE CITY BUYING THIS BUILDING?

This pic is based on google - I may try later to go to the address and get a picture to verify this is correct.

The property is owned by an LLP wherein Nurith Galonsky is named the principal.  See Below click.  The other partner is her sister Tally - see marriage announcement below.

It has been claimed she is the daughter of Abraham Galonsky - the former owner of Casa Del Nylon. A marriage announcement confirms this. Click

You know why this is happening - because there is no law enforcement in Cameron county.   A grand jury should have reviewed the Casa Del Nylon deal and it did not.  Cameron county is about always running cover for someone.

The federal task force even if they are looking at the Casa Del Nylon deal will take well over a year - and by then limitations may have run.

There might be an actual good reason why the city needs this location - but the fact we are again having the city commission looking at buying a building from a Galonsky should cause the entire city commission to pause and ask in a very public way - WHY?  Cannot we get the same thing from another owner of property downtown - why does it have to be with someone tied to Tony Martinez?

Pat Ahumada would put a stop to all of this and call for an investigation on the case Nylon property.

BWC; as of today's date has there been any reason other than to line the pockets of TM's pockets as well as his friends for the over prices properties that have been purchased by the City ie: Casa de Nylon?

Tony knows he has the feds compromised because he made Diane Dillard [wife of federal judge part of the process] and a local law enforcement process which protects the privileged.

This is beyond surreal - but there is no one to stop it - so we all protest to no avail

Owners are crazy to get rid of their downtown properties because the peso is going to 20 with oil at $40 for years. If you think "the entertainment district" looks bad now, wait a few months.
(By the way, oil may hit the 40's this week!)

I want to see all the wise guys who do not understand how dependent Brownsville is to the peso economy down the road. It has been almost 20 years since the last blow out but it ALWAYS comes back. It is the nature of the beast.

Actually great observation _ hope you are wrong - but I was in El Paso when the Peso collapsed and the impact was major - business - even the UTEP because there were so many Mexican nationals attending UTEP

Downtown can't be productive if it's filled with publicly-owned buildings that don't generate property taxes nor provide a service or product that generates sales taxes. I assume they mean well, but they're draining it of economic value.

WTI just broke $51 this morning. Mexico receives around $6 less than WTI because most its oil is heavy and costs more to refine.

Since Calderon was President production has falle over 30% and now the price has been more than halfed. Do the arithmatic... Mexico has lost almost 70% of its dollar income from exporting oil. That money was used for OPERATING the governmen, keeping it running, paying bills, like eating your seed corn, NOT FOR INVESTMENT...

Now, they have reforms for foreign companies to increase production. Two big problems, it takes YEARS for new production to come on board. And, most importantly, NO oil company is going to risk exploration money with oil in the $40's. Mexico had to take money DIRECTLY out of PEMEX last week to pay bills. Never don before. They always used the income from oil sales. WHAT DO YOU THINK WILL HAPPEN TO THE PESO UNDER THIS SCENARIO? It has to devalue so the government gets MORE pesos for its lower dollar export income. This is regardless of how large the dollar reserves are, which are quite large now. But they have to save that money incase oil goes to $20. But, whatever you do as a border city DO NOT plan for this and diversify your local economy!!! Remember Amigoland Mall, at one time the highest selling per sq. ft. mall in the USA. What is it now? YOUR FUTURE.

An anony informed me by email this was not posted - I did not see it so I am copying the email over for posting

Today at 12:52 PM

"I am the one who wrote that the comment that the city wanted to purchase this building because it is connected to those other 3 locations the city owns that were recently remodeled on 11th street. (609 e 11th st where BC workshop is currently located) It backs up into their courtyard and there's some drainage issues. The building to be purchased is the small el cid building on e Washington. Historically I think some of those buildings were part of a larger complex in the back. I think the purchase price is 55 or 65k. But I could be wrong on that. I noticed you didn't approve my comment. Oh and nurith is Abrahams daughter. She is on the PUB board. I think she was appointed by Portillo."
