Opinion needed

The city has about 3 million dollars that has been deemed as a surplus. There has been several suggestions on how to use those taxpayer dollars. Should we give it back to the taxpayer? Should we pay down our city debt? Should we use it for infrastructure needs? Should we use it on the Water smart park? How about a tourist attraction like a wave pool? Would it be possible to raffle it off? Should we have a statue of all the Mayors of our city placed by the gazebo at League Park? Maybe we should have an official Mayor’s residence? What about a city owned radio station? Or better yet let’s invest it in GOLD !!! So what do you think we should do with it?

Et tu Brute ?

My Goodness……Saw this in today’s Daily news about Ken with no grin. It appears Clark the Shark has been hooked and gutted by his long time assistant who did his dirty work and just retired from the county. Even KING KONG had a Fey Wray. Is that what the Republican party calls “Family values’ or “good Christian morals” ? Why won’t he talk to the press if he has nothing to hide? Once the snowball starts it is hard to stop. In the end even Frankenstein gets caught.

Kens Sins ?

Saw this in today's Daily news. I am not surprised that there are few comments on the other thread because the Republicans are scared stiff of the Frankenstein they have created. I find it sad that very few have the backbone to clean out their own. Is this what we can expect, just a different set of good old boys? “Absolute power corrupts absolutely” Wake up voters just because it has the "Conservative" lable does not mean they are good, honest and what is best for our county. We have seen the example already. (Jerry Shults and that District Clerk fool to name a few) So our tax dollars are being spent on investigation instead of improving our county. That is “conservative values” ? No it’s politics as usual, just a different clown juggling the balls and making the money.

King Faker

I saw this on the front page of the daily news. King Maker? LOL no don't think so it's more like King Faker. Oh what a tangled web we weave...... Gives a whole new meaning to the term "Family values". I guess, like other politicians before him on both sides,  that is what happens when you have been in office to long.

Oller out, now what? Over.

Acting City Manager and Director of Public Works Rich Oller resigned today amidst allegations of inappropriate language usage by saying the N-word. Mr. Oller firmly denies using language in a denigrating way. Instead, Mr. Oller says that he used the N-word in a description of it’s use by someone else and his disgust of the way it was used. He maintains the description of the conversation has been taken out of context.

League City recently changed its form of government from strong mayor form to council-manager form. Traditionally in council-manager form of government, Mayor and Council set policy, while the day to day operations of the city are left to professional managers. In his letter of resignation, Mr. Oller describes the issue he has with City Council. His description is the the Council “stays in the operations and assessments of staff and renders the position of city manager ineffective.” in contradiction of the Charter Change that made League City a council manager form of government.

Political Jocularity in League City has been cited over the past so many years for the government’s inability to manage itself and properly plan for the future.

Should the City Move Election Day?

As far back as I can remember, elections have been held in May in League City. However, there is a recommendation by the League City Charter Review Committee to move the city election to the November ballot with other state and federal elections.

A recent state law, and language in the City Charter, would now allow the City Council to move election day by ordinance. This means that this years election could be moved to the November ballot if City Council approves a proposed ordinance during the month of January.

If approved, citizens of League City would be able to vote at any Galveston County election site. The efficiencies of combining our municipal election with federal, state and county elections could save tax payers thousands of dollars per election as well as increasing voter participation by making it much more convenient and easy for voters to participate. If approved, voters would no longer face the frustration of going from election site to election site trying to find their correct voting location.

There are some Council persons who don't support this measure and have publicly stated their apprehension about this proposed change. Councilmen Becker and O'Keeffe went on the record during yesterdays Council workshop with the Charter Review Committee saying that they were not certain they would be supporting this ordinance to change the municipal election from May to November.

Mr. Becker said that he was not certain that uninformed voters would be a benefit to the election process in League City. Mr. Becker said that he was of the opinion that the current approximately 2000 voters were informed on the issues, but if 18,000 voters were to participate, he was not certain they would be educated on the issues that surround an election. I am anxious to hear what your thoughts are on this issue.
