Franklin: I think if we sat down and had breakfast one morning and I told you what I know, you would be stunned. Hell, we should do it...

It's me, jason, you nailed it. Get rid of the politics and might I say, the desire of Jones to replace a treasurer whom has no financial gain with one whom has extremely questionable finances (Joy). Explain that to the masses.... More ›

Franklin, I'll be honest. I read your comment all the way to the point where you said that ESDs do do not get money from the county. Sir, how wrong you are. I was the Treasurer for La Vernia VFD and Mike Hanson and George... More ›
