"Whatever Lola Wants"
(Richard Adler, Jerry Ross)
Whatever Lola wants, Lola gets
And little man, little Lola wants you
Make up your mind to have (Make up you mind to have)
No regrets (no regrets)
Recline yourself Resign yourself, you're through I always get, what I aim for
And your heart and soul Is what I came for
Whatever Lola wants (Lola wants) Lola gets (Lola gets)
Take off your coat
Don't you know you can't win
You're no exception to the rule
I'm irresistible you fool .. give in
(Give in, you'll never win)
|Caricature of Tony "Lola" Martinez by Nena|
First, the mayor just HAD to have a downtown office.
Without approval by the City Commission, the mayor committed the City of Brownsville to a lease for the property at 1101-A Washington Street commencing October 8, 2013.
Remodeling on the space was performed by City of Brownsville craftsmen, with four or five trucks parked outside the property in the fall of 2013. The $14,000 remodeling cost the city mentioned in response to a Public Information Request was for materials only, not labor. Adding taxpayer insult to taxpayer injury, Mayor Martinez NEVER used the office and the city allowed the lease to expire after one year.
Now, according to Martinez, the burden of city paperwork requires that he have a personal office secretary, paid for by the taxpayers. Nevermind, that the city already has a City Secretary, Michael L. Lopez, along with a supporting staff. The mayor, owner of Lola's Bakeshop on Palm Blvd., wants what the mayor wants.
Well, it may not have worked out the way the crybaby mayor preferred. He tried to bully the city into hiring his longtime assistant, Sandra Saenz as his secretary. What the City Manager has done instead is post an opening on the City of Brownsville website for a part-time assistant to the mayor AND city commission.
The job will pay $18.5913 per hour for 20 hours per week or $19,334.50 yearly. Annual and sick leave privileges are included.
Here is the job description and skill set needed for this position as posted on the city's website:
