Editor:

In light of the bankruptcy of Detroit a few days ago, I rest my case on the fiscal mess in Floresville that I wrote to you about a few weeks ago.

If the city council doesn’t get its act together by the time they are due to be re-elected, its time to clean house completely. It probably wouldn’t hurt to have a recall election and clean house now.

It’s time for some new blood in the council that knows what to do, and is willing to do what is needed to turn the fiscal mess around.

JAMES W. CHATHAM

Grouch, It is an Honor for me to serve my country in the Navy as well. FYI Adkins is closer to Floresville than Grand Prairie. Take your own advice from your last sentence, at least Mr. Chatham is in the county.

We did clean house. We got rid of Gomez and Flores. Tejada could not run again. Joslin did us the favor of resigning. That has been a good start. Now we just need to get rid of Castillo. However, the previous regime left ... More ›

The current council was left with the mess. Legally binding contracts and debt cannot just be gone with the wave of some magic wand. It takes time to clean up any mess.

This is the second dumb letter that you have written to the WCN. At least, you dropped the retired navy bit after your name. I am sure that all retired military are grateful for that small favor. Living outside of Floresville ... More ›
