I went to the District A forum last night at Fratelli’s. One of the questions from the audience was about the recent “anti-discrimination” ordinance that was passed in San Antonio which was all over the local news, including in the Houston Chronicle. The only candidates that knew anything about it or that Mayor Parker wants the same thing in Houston were Helena and Mike. What so interesting is that these individuals are running for political office in Houston and three of them obviously never pick up the local paper or listen to the local TV news. Ron’s ideas for Spring Branch would be better suited for anywhere but Texas. Amy’s claim to fame is her connection to Dan Patrick and gave perfect “politician” answers (yawn). Brenda would have us believe that although she totally ignored the people in District A and brown nosed Mayor Parker when she was on City Council last time, she has changed her ways. Mike has a good grasp of the problems in Spring Branch, especially the criminal aspect (think gangs). I’m looking forward to finding out more about him. Helena has been very, very available to the people in Spring Branch and will continue to represent them very well.
Seems that disgraced ex cop William Michael Knox has some “splaining” to do as to why he was given a suspension for 10 days in August of 1994? He spoke about this all being political, but then if it was totally fabricated why did he accept a reduced suspension and fully agree to it? Why was he not indicted? Why did he quit the police department with less than 4-1/2 years to a retirement that would have paid him over a MILLION dollars over the past 10-15 years? Why was his services terminated with the Spring Branch Management District? Did it have anything to do with his blow ups with citizens? Why did he agree with the Chapter 42 plan of Mayor Parker? So many unanswered questions…..and why was he terminated from the gang task force at the Westside station?
Why why why why why….
