THE BV IS READY TO CALL THE RUN-OFF WITH THE EXCEPTION OF ONE RACE

THE NEW COMPOSITION OF THE CITY COMMISSION

SWING VOTES WORKING TOWARDS A NICER AND BETTER BROWNSVILLE

Mayor [ELECT AFTER RUN-OFF] Trey Mendez and Commissioner Rose Gowen.  Rose Gowen is part of Brownsville's upper class.  She worked with Tony to get what she wanted.  The bike and walking trails, and Farmers Market. I opposed the unsafe bike trail on 6th but otherwise always support the trails.  Rose never wanted to give away Lincoln Park.  It goes against everything she wanted for the city, but she needed Tony.  Trey and  Rose will be two awesome swing votes working in different ways to make downtown shine thereby bringing in more tax revenues for the rest of Brownsville.  I am very happy for both.  I think they will have tremendous respect for one another.  

THE MACHINES AND THIS IS WHERE WE DO NOT KNOW

FOR SURE GALONSKY

GALONSKY will have the help of Ben Neece and John Cowen.  Until we know what Michael Rodriguez does it is hard to call the run-off between Nurith and Rick.  Rick has been sick and boy do I get that.  Nurith learned a lot and I mean a lot on the campaign trail.  She is not the woman who began the campaign.  I do not see much of a blind female vote in a low run off.

FOR SURE MIKE HERNANDEZ AND CARLOS MARIN

Jessica Tetreau Kalifa.  Most will say they have Munguia but he may see the writing on the wall.  Jessica by all means should not have won, but no highly qualified female ran against her.So in effect she was unchallenged.  Mike do not take Jessica as a victory, she was a default.

Rick Longoria has an uphill battle.  If he wins I think he will be more of a swing vote.  The absolute biggest losers tonight are Mike Hernandez and Carlos Marin.  

Look people I know both of these guys.  Before I knew the truth about OP1033, although I was warned big time, but I chose to sit back and watch before I judged - I also played divide and conquer.

THE UNTOLD STORY

I convinced Mike that going against Trey was going to hurt in his then stated objective that people were starting to take seriously.  I knew Jose Angel Gutierrez was already livid with Carlos Marin and knew if Mike dropped Jose Angel's candidate for TSC the spit would occur.  It did and Trey ran with the support of Mike and Carlos.  We all know who won that race.  I got Trey the money, and the fracture between Jose Angel and Mike, which would have happened anyway.

IN THE END WE ARE GOING TO HAVE A VERY NO MAJORITY COMMISSION AND THIS MAKES THE PEOPLE THE WINNER

MAYOR ELECT, Trey Mendez [after run-off] will have a good city commission which will have no choice but to compromise and work with one another.  Finally.

THE BV PREDICTION ON WHY A SMALL TURN OUT CAN BE GOOD

Yea I think I called that one.  The informed voters saw a very very angry Tony Martinez and knew he was desperate and in the end the results showed an informed electorate in a small turn out can turn the victory to the people for the mayoral race.

THINK OBJECTIVELY:  A lot larger turn out would have had a lot of blind voters just marking Tony Martinez as incumbent.  This is the norm.  The small voter turn out in the run-off will work for Trey.

Cabler should think about something.  Both Martinez and Ahumada went with negative mailers and both came in 3rd.  This will be about getting out deliberate voters.  Door to door will not do it.  Social media and connecting with the handful of undecided will decide this election.

MY QUESTION

TONY AND TREY ARE NOT FRIENDS AND EVEN LESS SO NOW

Galonsky and Tony are good friends.  Does Galonsky make a new alliance with Hernandez/Marin?  That would spell disaster for Brownsville

Tony right now is livid.  If Galonsky goes straight business and ignores his personal relationship with Martinez he will never even consider an alliance with Hernandez/Marin.  This spells  disaster for Cabler.

Tony no longer cares about the Cabler secrets.  This could get very interesting.  Remember alliances are only good for one vote.  Pink Ape will put a lot of pressure on Trey, John and Nurith to keep it together, and Pink Ape in the end will be the go to people for all future elections.

Sorry for the wondering.  My choice - medivac to SA.  I am actually cryiing in pain as I type.  They are doing their best to get me in on Tuesday.  Because of some things which are happening the pain may be from too much cerebral fluid draining, as opposed to pressure.  The steroids did nothing.

HOPEFULLY GBIC IS IN PANIC AND WE GET THE NEW HOUSING DEVELOPMENT NOW

So my daily ad asking people to vote for Trey was me asking that people not vote for him?

I thought you were going away.
