Gordy Bunch on Port of Beaumont Importance & his Military and Business Experience – Texas Senate District 4 Race

This past Saturday I met up with Gordy Bunch at the Port of Beaumont, Texas. Mr. Bunch is running for Texas State Senate District 4. This will be a special election, which will be held on Saturday, May 10th due to the current State Senator, Tommy Williams, having stepped down. Texas State Senate District 4 goes from Montgomery County, Conroe and The Woodlands, all the way over to Jefferson County, Beaumont and Port Arthur.

Over the next few days, I will create the transcript of the questions I asked, and the answers from Gordy Bunch. That will take a little more time. For now, I wanted to go ahead and post the video highlights, the main topics addressed, and some of the pictures.   Read more »

The Re-election of Rob Eissler, The Real Bruce Tough

On the night of May 30th 2012, the voters of Texas House District 15 removed Rob Eissler from office by the overwhelming margin of 57% to 43%. One of the major reasons for his defeat was because he and ten other fellow Republican House members joined with 65 Democrats to replace the Conservative Republican Speaker with the Liberal Republican, Joe Straus. At that point Mr. Straus became the puppet of Democrat

Montgomery County voters should be fuming at commissioners’ jail actions

In 2006, Montgomery County Commissioners Court unanimously issued $45 million in revenue bonds (no voter approval necessary) to finance the clumsy scheme known as the Joe Corley Jail. Voters were told at the time that the 1,288-bed Joe Corley Jail, built next door to the existing Montgomery County Jail, would “initially house federal inmates” but eventually would meet the “future need for more bed

Lone Star College System Bond Defeated

Despite tens of thousands of dollars spent on multiple glossy mailers, radio advertising, brochures, etc., to promote the bond and incumbent trustees, the Lone Star College System $497 million bond failed last night. Two of three incumbent trustees, Dr. Forestier and Mr. Bates, were replaced by challengers Dr. Kyle Scott and Dr. Ron Trowbridge. Dr. Dave Holsey, recommended by the Texas Patriots PAC as the most conservative candidate for his position, won re-election. The election results tonight exactly matched the positions taken by the Texas Patriots PAC on the bond and supported candidates.

What Should Happen with the Joe Corley Jail?

Is the sale of the jail, which the County will continue to lease, the best way to resolve the problems the County has created by building a jail which the County does not currently need?

Texas law allows Counties to issue Revenue Bonds, which are secured by the revenues of a project, without voter approval. But it is inconceivable that the legislature intended this provision to be used where the source of the revenue is not a third party. That is exactly the situation created by the Joe Corley Jail financing. The County established

County Commissioners' entrepreneurial "investment" fails

In 2006, the Montgomery County commissioners created the Montgomery County Jail Financing Corporation in order to build the Joe Corley Detention Facility. To finance the facility’s construction, the commissioners sold $44.8 million in tax-exempt revenue bonds. As part of an agreement with the IRS on retaining its tax-exempt status, after five years 30 percent of the facility’s

Voters bypassed in Montgomery County

The Montgomery County Commissioners have directly circumvented the will of the voters, leading our county further into debt.
