Ahumada's Letter to "El Rrun Rrun" Editor Details Carlos Marin and Mike Hernandez III Project

From the editor:  The letter below, from former Mayor Pat Ahumada, posted on El Rrun Rrun this morning, provides even more insight into behind-the-scenes efforts by Mike Hernandez III and Matamoros millionaire Carlos Marin.



 Blogger Pat Ahumada said...

Months back, Mike Hernandez approached me
through Robert Sanchez with the pitch that he wanted to help Brownsville create jobs and provide educational opportunities to the citizens of Brownsville. 

I was asked to set up meetings with key people in my network, which I did and it sound good. I provided a lot of information and material, including my entire file on the weir project to Mike Hernandez and the names of the California group with Sam Marrasco to develop downtown.

Then I realized that I had been used. It became apparent Mike Hdz made an alliance with Carlos Marin and that is when I jumped ship. They tried to hire me as a consultant, but I said no. 

Now they talk about those things I worked on and would like to see brought to fruition, but they do not understand that it was the same people Mike Hdz aligned himself with who was working to undermine the weir project. 

I expect them to mile our city like Marin has done with the Tenaska project, Imagine.United Brownsville, and anything they can get their hooks into. 

The good thing is that finally citizens have opened up their eyes to know that special interest has been steadily working to take control of all our elected and appointed boards. 

I was the first one to stand up to them and the first casualty for saying no. I warned everyone, but got no support and was labeled as being difficult by Atkinson and those who supported Carlos Marin and his Imagine Brownsville. 

Because people stood on the sidelines and watched them pound on me, now Carlos Marin has come back to haunt the same people who stood on the sidelines allowing special interest to get powerful. 

Much irreparable damage has been done with the border wall going up with the help of Troiani and the others on the commission with the intent to undermine weir and the river walk proposed downtown development. 

In spite of ourselves, good things do happen and I hope that somehow this initiative of mine some day becomes a reality. It is feasible, as we were able to get the weir project approved as a bi-national project, when before it was never a bi-national project and millions had already been spent. It was like the bridge to nowhere project wit no bi-national status.

  2. Wow never imagined someone would pull a fast one on Ahumada. I am surprised at all that is happening. But why didn't Mr Ahumada come forward before and speak out against this? Why now?

  3. It is better to be in the inside to bring about change or to stop bad things from happening than it is to be on the outside and having to react after the fact, as we now are doing on the side lines. The Casa Nylong, Tenaska project, higher utility rates approved, and so forth would not have happened with me in the inside. However, the people prefer this, then we have to do the best we can from the outside. Being in the inside you must work with the devil himself knowing they are out to steal your soul, but if you are strong you fight back, which is what I tried to do to protect our city. What I have stated here is common knowledge to many who are in the inside. People know one of the assistants was hired because Cabler was forced to hire her by the mayor and Gowen, but in return Charlie gets to do what he wants. So they have each other by the yang yang and it serves their purpose to get away with buying properties at exorbitant prices or Gowen operating the Health Department and its resources as she pleases, while Charlie gets a huge raise and does what he wants. So, who cares what you or I think, it is the ones in the inside that get to do as they please and get away with it. You or I do not matter, we just pay the price for their self serving agendas and wants.

  4. Sorry, but I forgot to answer your question as to when I was approached by OP.10.22. It think it was either October or November 2014 when I was asked to set up meetings with people in my network by George Sanchez and Mike Hernandez.

    1. Earlier you said it was Bob Sanchez. Were you merely trying to elevate that buffoon?

  5. I believe you Mr Ahumada. I understand what you mean in every way. Unfortunately people blame everyone else but the people who are responsible. And yes you're right you have to work with the devil knowing they're coming at you while they smile. Must be hard not to be able to trust people and or trust them and then they're done with you when you speak up. Politics is a dirty game I see this now. Thank you for your reply.

  7. George and Bob SANCHEZ with Mike Hernandez met with me to help with what Mike was proposing for Brownsville, which sounded good, but I jumped ship when I saw the strong alliance with Carlos Marin and cohorts

  8. Pat you are a worthless individual

  9. Anonymous 8:11 pm, worthless means nothing and I thin you are mixed up or do not know the definition of worthless, because you contribute nothing and you hide behind anonymous, which makes you worthless. I at least try and contribute. I share my knowledge, experience, and opinions in a constructive manner and you hide...

  11. There is no ego here, I am just interested in one thing and that is to keep special interest from taking over the county. My effort is to unite with others of like mind to help Dan win this election against special interest. You want to join us, call me at 956-572-8172. You might as well switch sides, because Eddie does not care about you. Eddie is for Eddie. Thanks!

  12. Pat invokes the Weir whenever he sees an opportunity to blame somebody for his fuck up.
