Hidalgo Co Democratic Party Appoints Convicted Felon

Charges include: Assault and Aggravated Kidnapping!

On September 14, the Hidalgo County Democratic Party appointed local activist, Miguel Angel Garza to a chair position.

On the surface, it would appear that Mr. Garza is your average Democratic operative.  Using his influence, skills, and networking capabilities, Miguel Angel Garza seeks to ensure local Democrats maintain or obtain elected office.

What the public is unaware of is that Mr. Garza has a very troubled past, carrying with him a list of criminal offenses that would even impress Hillary Rodham Clinton.   Continue reading “Hidalgo Co Democratic Party Appoints Convicted Felon”

SAD! Fr. Frank Pockets the Silver for Health Care District.

Father Jerry Frank lashed out at the opposition yesterday by calling on local media to help spread the word that only parishioners were allowed to attend Health Care Workshops. Unfortunately for Fr. Frank, my media outlet, though small, will not spread the word which calls for a controlled and agenda driven discussion in favor of more taxes. Continue reading “SAD! Fr. Frank Pockets the Silver for Health Care District.”

Father Jerry Frank’s Silencing of Tax Opponents Is Not Catholic Teaching.

Since the final weekend of August, participating Catholic parishes throughout Hidalgo County began offering “informational” workshops with the sole purpose of pushing a County Health Care Taxing District, and influencing those that participate to vote for said District.  The information workshops are being spear-headed by Father Gerald (Jerry) Frank, a Pastor of St. John the Baptist, and one of the leading proponents of the Taxing District, who also presented the signed petition to County Commissioners.

Opponents of the Taxing District, concerned that a religious institution is taking sides on a political issue, decided it was in the best interest of the electorate to provide an opposing view, and let the voters decide.

Desperation! Facebook Page in Support of Health-Tax Takes Aim at Local Veteran.

False allegations prove Pro-Taxers are losing information war.

 Today, a Facebook Page that supports Proposition 1, titled “Stand With Hidalgo County” took issue with local conservative activist, George Rice, and his continuing campaign to inform citizens of Hidalgo County about the disastrous Health Tax District that local medical elites stand to impose on tax payers.

Rather than refute any points made by Mr. Rice, an administrator of the Facebook page chose instead to attack Mr. Rice personally.

First, implying that Rice has the potential to physically assault those with different opinions. Secondly, that there is already a police record on file for harassment.  FALSE! Continue reading “Desperation! Facebook Page in Support of Health-Tax Takes Aim at Local Veteran.”

Health Care District Back on Ballot. And Why This Time It May Pass

Tuesday, August 9th, the honorable, incorruptible, and always ethical elected officials of the Hidalgo County Commissioners Court overwhelmingly approved via a 4-1 vote, to allow the Proposition of a Health Care Taxing District to be on the General Election, November 8th ballot. Of the 5 deciding officials, only Eddie Cantu of Pct 2 was the dissenting vote.  Cantu’s primary reason behind his objection had to do with language on the petition, which were presented to the court by Juanita Valdez-Cox, Director of La Union de Pueblo Entero (LUPE), an illegal immigration advocacy group, and Father Jerry Frank, of Valley Interfaith.  The petition called for an 8 cent property tax for every $100 valuation.  According to Cantu, the setting for Health Care tax rate should be reserved exclusively for the Commissioner Court appointed “Board of Directors” and the tax rate ultimately approved by Hidalgo County Commissioners. According to Senate Bill 626, the ballot must specify a proposed tax rate. However, SB 626 also allows the Court appointed Board of Directors to set a tax rate, and to be approved by the Commissioners Court.  Essentially, the rate you see at the ballot box may not ultimately be the rate Hidalgo County tax payers will have. That rate will be decided behind closed doors.  As for why the proposed 8 cents, it’s likely that it was carried over from the first attempt at establishing a medical taxing district, which was narrowly defeated in November 2014.  However, unlike 2014, the 2016 version may have a better chance at passing, and it all comes down to the numbers….
