It looks as though the city and county Democrats plan on raising taxes by introducing billion dollar bond initiatives in the upcoming November Election. I imagine these bonds may have something to do with Chris Brown sounding the alarm for possible budget cuts in a Houston City Council Meeting a few months back stating that the city had been floating primarily off of federal funds, and when the money dried up the city would be tasked with making some hard decisions. Last week, in Commissioners Court, Adrian Garcia (D) brought up a $1.5 billion dollar initiative. Commissioners Ramsey and Cagle (R) both raised concerns of there not being enough time to sell these bonds to the public before the November elections. The Democrat hired bureaucrat County Administrator, David Berry informed the Republican Commissioners that there would be an “ample amount of time for there to be a bond program sold to the public”. Bear in mind, the city of Houston and Harris County have received Billions in federal COVID funds, and have been using them to basically implement their progressive policies. In the past year alone the county has paid out $47 million for an internet connectivity program for the public, a $50 million beautification project to “combat crime”, a shot spotter program (we know how well that has worked in Chicago) , a $48 million slots childcare program, and at least $40 million to various consulting groups which bear no semblance of work product.
a week earlier….
I’d urge people to be calling into the city and the county and voice your concerns regarding bringing bonds forth.
Covid was just a cover for to implement all these progressive programs and policies, like you said. So few people know or care. No one wants to rock the boat or even bother themselves with the notion that the situation of our entire country is really bad.
Lol Chris brown
