A Conservative's Take on Richardson, Texas Politics & Other Local Tomfoolery
My inside source, "the whisperer" called it right. Only complaint I have, Maczka needed to be at the top, not Townsend.
You're so gaga for her. ;) Is this how gross it is when I talk about Amir?
It is not Laura getting Pro Tem that surprises me. It is Townsend. Yet when he said he was running again and Murph and Slag were not, had a weird thought the powers that be would put him at the helm. Msybe there is slight hope to clear some of the shenanigans.
That's how the Coalition works: who is the easiest to control? And the answer would be: Bob Townsend. Hasn't had an original thought in his head since 1973. But he'll do as he's told. And Chucky doesn't want results - and doesn't care if the city continues to go downhill - but just wants somebody who'll do exactly as he's told.How'd the vote go down tonight?
I will bet that Mrs.M. will take a lot of the engagements normally taken by a mayor, and I bet she will do very well. I was not a fan, but her integrity won me over. This also tells me that the coalition does not have the hold they think they have. This is one tough committed lady, and I say that with respect. Richardson just may be on the brink of something really good.
hi Anon at 11:17 AM - you say "This also tells me that the coalition does not have the hold they think they have. "Let's see, Gary Slag's former Mayor Pro Tem and his hand-picked Place 4 candidate now are in position. I don't see how that indicates any loss of coalition power.
