Last night BJP reported on the upcoming Montgomery County MUD 148 election where two people could decide the fate of $500 million in road, sewer, water and recreation bonds and the tax rate to be levied on future homeowners who purchase a home in the planned community—and we published a photo of the trailer residence used by the two voters on their voter registration cards.
But did you know there’s a company that specializes in providing turn-key voter trailer installation services and election services for MUD’s, WCID’s (water control improvement district and RID’s?

The Statesman wrote about Stingray Services back in February 2012:
In general, MUDs, often the building blocks for development, are approved by the Legislature but don’t come into being until an election is held involving everybody who lives in the proposed district. Everybody who lives there could be nobody.
So it behooves the developer to move somebody onto the land, somebody who understands he or she is free to vote however he or she wants to (wink, wink, nod, nod).
That’s where Stingray Services and Tina can come into play. It’s also where Craigslist becomes an integral part of the election process. On Jan. 27, a Craigslist posting popped up with this headline: $300 / 3br-1200ft2- Live on site, low rent.”
“Developer needs full time residents in a MUD district election. Cheap rent for 6 months beginning approx. March 1, 2012. $400 deposit. No pets. In order to qualify you must be eligible to vote in Texas (NO felonies, 18 yrs or older, valid Texas ID or Drivers License).
House is a 2008 manufactured home in great condition with all appliances, and w/d connections. Eligible tenants will vote in and serve as election officials for the MUD district election which takes place in the home. Tenants will be paid for their time spent serving as election officials.”
Stingray Services will even help secure the construction permit for the temporary voter trailer—as they did for MUD 148 from the City of Conroe BC-15-005893 issued permit.
Because the election results HAVE to come out the way the developer and bond counsel want it to.
But what I want to know is how many of the voters from the near 100 elections Stingray Services has helped with were prosecuted by the State of Texas for illegal voting?
When Jim and Adrian get out of jail will the State of Texas allow them to operate a turn-key voter trailer installation services and election services business?
