This afternoon my attorney filed a Emergency Petition for Writ of Mandamus with the Fourth Court of Appeals in San Antonio.

Essentially, this petition argues that the City Secretary exceeded her authority, as defined by the Texas Election Code, in declaring me ineligible to seek the office of Floresville City Council, Place #1. This petition requests that the Court issue a writ compelling the City Secretary to withdraw her declaration of ineligibility and further direct the City Secretary to reinstate my name on the 2012 Municipal Election Ballot for the office of City Council, Place #1.

We are expecting a decision from the Fourth Court of Appeals as early as Friday afternoon.

I am disappointed in the actions of the City of Floresville in this matter. The discussion that needs to be taking place is that of how this City prepares for the future and what each candidate for public office will do, if elected, to lead the City.

I, personally, want to be talking about the growth the City will be experiencing as a result of the Eagle Ford Shale. According to the engineering study present by M&S Engineering the City of Floresville, in the next 5 years, could see a population explosion of 25%.

If the City of Floresville increases in population by 25% (thats an additional 2,200 residents in the City Limits) will our infrastructure be able to support them?

Will our streets support an additional 2,200 residents?

Will our water system support an additional 2,200 residents?

Will our waste water system support an additional 2,200 residents?

Will our public safety systems (police, fire, & ems) be able to support an additional 2,200 residents?

More importantly, what will it cost to upgrade this basic infrastructure to support the growth of the City of Floresville? How will this needed infrastructure be funded?

I contend that until these questions are answered and the costs identified all unnecessary spending by the city should be frozen. I contend that a 10 year master plan with identified costs, timelines and potential funding sources must be developed by the City as a key component of any budget. The so-called "10 Year Master Plan" does not identify any costs or potential funding sources. This "plan" simply contains recommendations from M&S Engineering.

I want to discuss the issues of growth facing the City of Floresville. I have a 10 point plan for day one to put us back on the right path. A plan that is based upon Respect, Financial Accountability and Transparency.

I hope that those running for elected office, those holding elected office and those who are appointed by those holding elected office are willing to discuss the issues. This is what this election is about!
