|Obviously, Those Safe Fracking people are trouble-makers!|
Leave it to Mayor Salinas to defy logic. Never one to pass up an opportunity for being in the spotlight, Salinas last week made a rare move. He eleceted to pass up a chance to appear in front of the cameras. As LaredoTejas has reported before, Salinas, The Laredo City Council and Commissioner Jaime Canales were all absent from the Safe Fracking Coalition meeting which was held at the UTHSC campus on Bustamante street.
Fast forward a week, Salinas is all smiles, hamming it up at the Mayors' Conference wayyyy up in Baltimore, Maryland and Canales is attending an Eagle Ford Consortium meeting this morning 80 miles away in Carrizo Springs, Texas.
I guess when the oil companies are being asked to simple be accountable, Salinas and Canales don't want to be anywhere nearby. We all know who the Mayor, Canales and the city council really answer to, and it's not as the Mayor loves to say, "the people".
