MAYORAL RACE IS ON

The ads appear in the same order as they appeared in the Herald. Nothing is to be implied by the order.

While Pat and I are on opposite sides concerning Tenaska, his ad is clearly the most informative as to why Tony Martinez has to go.

I will bet the farm that if Pat wins and industry relocates to Brownsville because of Tenaska he will take credit for it, event though he is clearly opposed to it - or is he?  Is his statement just one of those bogymen statements I hate? - It is not so simple as a 36% rate increase.  It is about being honest how a 2 cents increase in the actual rate per kwh will either hurt or help Brownsville in the future.  It is not about whether someone will smoke less or drink less, it is about the overall long term impact on Brownsville.  Industry will not come to Brownsville if it does not have an electrification expansion policy or water policy.  I know many of you hate this reality, but reality does not change because it costs money.

U made a great point ID DOESNT MATTER WHO DRINKS/SMOKES MORE, we need someone who is going to advocate for the city and look out for our best interests.

Who cares who wins, its all the same. Some claim no more compadrismo, but trust me, once they get elected, its all a blur and its all for the their pockets.

I can't bring myself to vote for Pat. It's a combination of his previous arrests for DUI, his "mistakenly" depositing a large check in his bank account, and his personality (a self proclaimed "junkyard dog"). None of these "qualities" make for a good mayor. Even if he was acquitted of depositing the check in his account, who makes a mistake like that anyway? It's a large check made out to someone else, yet he didn't notice and tried to deposit it. How did he not notice that? How can he be trusted with more responsibility?
Do we really need a "junkyard dog" picking fights with others instead of building consensus? Do we need someone who throws tantrums instead of finding solutions? I think I can find someone else among the other candidates to vote for. I value responsible behavior and ethics, something hard to find in politics. Maybe we will find one of those two qualities in one of the candidates, but I see neither in Pat.

I can put everything aside except his personality. Nothing will get done if he is elected mayor. But if it is Tony or Pat in the runoffs then what? Not an easy question.

Thanks for the comment

Pat your comment I am rejecting only proves one thing you have changed not one bit. Your claims concerning my ties to Garza only prove your total lack of good characte. I came out against Garza a long time ago. But that is the deal with you Pat. You attack everyone and anyone who refuses to worship you.

No industry will relocate here because of Tenaska. We have been over this before and your shilling for Martinez on this one is wearing thin.

You know how i know you're full of shit. I broke tbe story of every act of wrongdoing by Tony Martinez. Further the Bv published the first story even before his election he would be a mistake. Pat take your bullshit lies to the lemmings who never ever learn
