|Yep, it's been one year with nothing doing!|
I believe it was last September when Kell-Munoz held it's farce of a series of public input meetings at the civic center. Over a span of about a month, between 30 and 50 Laredoans showed up to see the transformational process of revitalization at work. One year later, every one's still waiting and not one single thing has been done. Yet, nearly one half Million dollars of Laredo taxpayer money has been wasted by our elected city council members.
The fact that they are elected is probably the worst part. If they were assigned by some big shot, then we could at least understand why they have absolutely no accountability. Sadly, people from all parts of Laredo, made it a point to go out during early voting and election day, Most people took time out of their busy days, used their own vehicles and gas to find their respective precinct and cast their ballot.
But, perhaps the reason, that our city council always returns to its smug and self-serving ways is because they know full well there is another kind of voter that they can depend on. These are the voters who essentially sell their votes to the most enterprising canonero/canonera, get a free ride to the polls along with specific voting instructions. These people will never complain because they could care less. Yet, these are the most important people in the eyes of our seedy council. No wonder things are in such a mess all the time.
So, again I ask.....what's is the latest development with the $400,000 Kell-Munoz giveaway. I guess I should ask what's the first development with this entire debacle? I really don't think there's been one.
