Notice the "Yes" Has Already Been Checked
Notice the claim on the card that Annova LNG will protect the environment and "could bring hundreds of good-paying jobs" to the community. There is no mention that their application promises only 10 jobs at $36,000 per year with no guarantee those jobs would be filled by locals.
There is still the matter of the $25,000,000 tax abatement request put before the Cameron County Commissioners Court. A large contingent of taxpayers opposed to the tax abatement attended last Thursday's County Commissioner meeting with twenty signing up for Public Comment. The group, primarily South Padre Island and Port Isabel residents were severely disappointed in the icy reception afforded them by interim County Judge Pete Sepulveda who rudely manipulated the agenda to make them wait an additional two hours before commenting.
"He's just making you cool your heals," I responded, when asked what was going on. The tax abatement request was tabled for more "study." Lack of knowledge, however, did not prevent temporary County Judge Sepulveda from writing a support letter for Annova LNG.
