Tracy that is a correct statement, there are not a lot of people lining up to run for council and there is nothing nice to say about politicans because look at their reputation across the board, not just here-if they are not in trouble with the law (dwi, speeders, abusers) they are cheaters; those "good politicians" are the ones that will stand and say-yes we see the problem, we acknowledge your questions and we will get to the bottom of it with your help. These jobs they take (get elected to)to make a difference, not for pay, not for recognition, not for anything else but to make a difference where they are now, well that is what they say to get elected and then BOOM-it is like their moral compass goes dead. They want to help-city politics especially here in Floresville has always been to help grow this city. This council and especially this mayor have been about recognition and wanting their way and only their way and if you debunk that well guess what you somehow will pay. You do not get into politics for the money and when you do get into politics you should know with it comes headaches, ridicule and above else judgement by others. BUT there is a limit; if you know your wrong, just say it. Russell is right on the statements he made, he (mayor) should of just said, you know what, as we appreciate everyone coming together and acknowledging there is a problem, we will wait until everything comes back as I am not the person doing the audit or can tell you truthful if the numbers were wrong. What is wrong with a politician finally being truthful with the people they serve in the beginning? The only time they start being truthful is when they know something is going wrong and not in their favor. They clam up, get lawyers, PR firms and others a like to come in and do damage control before the fire storm hits because they know all hell is going to hit the fan because they know something WAS done wrong and someone noticed and they cannot do anything about it now. You cannot tell me in all your years and experience in politics that you cannot agree with that. We see it all to often, this is just a smaller scale. Right now they are looking at who they can blame for the mishap and so far we have received the first victim, the computer program. When the audit comes back (which they know when it is coming back) and there are mistakes in HISTORICAL numbers it'll be oh well that was that educated person that knew what she was doing, that financial director but she is gone now, so we can blame her and that other city manager that had done this for so many years, left because another city manager came in so we will blame him to (yet we are still paying him) and when we got rid of him we brought back the original city manager and he is no longer around so we will blame him, guess what not our fault-but we are the heros that will fix it, but wait, they will still have to answer the question when they were presented with "experience and other" numbers why didn't they ask about HISTORICAL numbers. BUT what they don't understand is the HISTORICAL numbers in question are during THEIR tenure. I'm sure if you asked him if this would happen in his workplace, that heads would roll immediately because corporate business does not put up with it, they check, recheck, ask questions and do audit upon audit before a final budget is passed. Look at the city of san antonio. how many times did their budget get looked at and how many HISTORICAL numbers did they look at, I think it was something like 10-15 years of comparisons! THAT is how it is suppose to be. So instead of stepping up and acknowledging the questions and finally being honest and saying - you know, there just might be a problem and if there is we are going to do everything we can to fix it. We will put all projects on hold until our budget is sound and we can all agree the numbers are as they should be, we will move forward on integrity and stand as a whole city, but no they coward themselves behind lawyers and PR firms-exactly what politicans do.
