Graphic Showing Eddie Trevino Public Utility Board Ratepayer Legal Fees Received Since 2013


Comments

  1. For over 8 months I had been trying to go through Open Records requesting Eddie Trevino's legal fees paid by PUB, with no success. Eddie has been hiding by using smoke and mirrors claiming the fee disclosure should not be available through open records, as it is sensitive and competitive. However, I was finally able to verify his legal fees with no help from the Attorney General and the total sum he has collected is $1,395,000 smackaroos. One Million Three Hundred Ninety Five Thousand Dollars as a simple Board attorney that is hired like Sossi to over see the board meeting compliance and open records. Eddie collected $1,395,000 from 2013 thru 2015, not including 2016. If Eddie did not have PUB as a client, he would probably starve, which is why Eddie wants to be County Judge.

  2. Look, there's money to be made from all angles in Brownsville, as is the case in cities across this land. Trevino found a path to cash. You might, too, if you exerted yourself, which is a rarity in lazy-ass Brownsville. Go LNG!!!!

  4. You can opine and allege all you want, but Dan Sanchez does not need defending when you compare Eddie Trevino's public service record, with the facts speaking for what to expect should Eddie get elected and the reason we should all unite behind Dan Sanchez for Cameron County Judge.

    Eddie as Brownsville city commissioner and as mayor did nothing to improve our city, other than wait for things to happen. Eddie did support special interest and developers with subsidies from PUB that resulted in the highest electrical rates in the state of Texas. Eddie Trevino married Carlos Marin and introduced the for profit Imagine Brownsville scam that has cost taxpayers over a million dollars and with nothing in return, other than providing a political based for himself and scamming public entities for the benefit of a select few, which has resulted in corrupting our city to a degree that has done so much irreparable harm to local democracy and fiscal responsible government. This is what has given us Mayor Tony Martinez, Charlie Cabler and others who have been feeding off our city. Eddie bartered the city manager's position for votes and gave Cabler a unprecedented contract with a raise and severance pay package that goes against our city charter and will cost us enormous sums of taxpayers monies. Thanks to Eddie, Cabler has a life time contract that should never been entered into and Eddie is an attorney that proved to care less about the city charter and the citizens of Brownsville. Besides the Imagine Brownsville scam, Eddie politically maneuvered a coup with the help of Manny Vasquez to remove PUB Board members for control of PUB, that has also resulted with disastrous results and he is now the PUB Board attorney, that has raped the utility system with exorbitant legal fees for a Board attorney with $1,395,000 and counting as of December 31, 2015. Eddie has fought to release to the public what he has been paid by PUB, which is a good indicator of what to expect if he should become County Judge, with no transparency to be expected. Eddie supports subsidies for his developer friends, but opposes LNG subsidies, when in reality Eddie will tell you as he always has what he believes will serve his benefit, because he is a scammer with no integrity. Need I continue? I don't think we can afford more of Eddie Trevino and no matter what you may say about Dan, I am confident people can put aside small differences and unite for the over all best interest of our county and will vote for Dan Sanchez for County Judge. We the people who seek transparency and integrity cannot take for granted that Dan will win, which is why I appeal to all like minded voters to unit and make sure we get our network of voters to vote early for Dan Sanchez. To those who want to believe Eddie Trevino is for bikers, against LNG, and anything he says, set this one issue aside, because Dan alone cannot do or stop anything without the majority on the commission voting for or against, therefore, do not let your perception cloud the over all good for our county based on a preferable preference on one issue that may or may not be true as to which Dan will support or be against on. Do not let others create a perception that serves their interest, but vote based on what is best for the over all good. Look at Gowen and the city manager, the whole city agenda is driven by Gowen's health agenda, which has resulted in the city ignoring everything else. We cannot elect people based on one issue, because like the city, it is too costly to run a city on Health mandated preferences of one commissioner. I am not a biker, nor a health nut by choice and Gowen has no right to force me into her definition of what is best for me. I want my streets paved, I want my utilities lowered, and I do not want the Health Director at her beck and call, nor the city treasury for her pet projects only. Vote for Dan Sanchez, because Dan will at least be transparent and uphold what is right. Thank you!

  5. If we started pointing out Pat's record, he'd have a cow! Fly frontera, weir Dam FAILURE, dog on Trey Mendez balcony, etc. I'm not going to bring up the DWI because I know he has personal problems to deal with, but I think it's comical he wants to criticize people when he can't see how he is himself.

  6. Pat is not running for office simpleton , don't try to distract with your garbage . We don't have great choices for County Judge but Trevino would be a cancer for the community .

  7. The difference is that I am not running for office. I have already been down that road and have taken all of the criticism you and others could muster, but I am still here and relevant. FYI, I believed in Fly Frontera and think the safe guards based on service and production the city risk was minimal. And to date, there are no flights to Mexico, so you blast me for trying. I was gaining nothing, but was seeking to create jobs and improve our economy. Was that so wrong, just because you disagree? I don' think so. You claim victory, but at what price when you offer nothing and do nothing to bring flights from Mexcio to Brownsville. The Weir Damn was not a failure, thanks to my friends in Mexico and me, we were able to over come the biggest obstacle for this project, which was Mexico's opposition to making this project a bi-national project. You see, PUB spent millions on the project, but it was like the Port Bridge to nowhere that had no partner and taxpayers were out of $21 million. Thanks to our initiatives and hard work we made the weir project a doable project that will eventually become a reality and will be a huge economic engine, so it was not a failure. Thanks to Henry Najera who helped me block the opposition from Atkinson, Troiani, Gowen, Camarillo, Carlos Cascos, Marin and others who almost succeeded and were eager to let Tony Mtz partner take over the project for a cost of $2.0 million with $500,000 up front as consultants we made it a bi-national project at no cost to PUB or the city. I put a lot of time and paid for a lot of my travel out of pocket, but to set you straight-this effort paid off and it was not a failure.

  8. The DWI charge you refer to was when I was headed to catch a flight to Washington to lodge a formal complaint on misappropriations of HUD monies. I tried to get the city manager to correct this, but he would not do it, so I felt the need to file the complaint. Again, Troiani, Atkinson, Cabler,and Congressman Ortiz tried to block my meetings with HUD, but were unsuccessful. The result led into an investigation that proved over $2.0 million has been misappropriated and Cabler knew, but did nothing. Ben Medina had to leave and has sued the city, which will lead to a most likely settlement, because I believe Ben will eventually prove the misappropriations was done with the city managers oral instructions for pet projects for commissioners like Gowen. So, my trip was successful and there was never a conviction on this DWI charge, because they could not prove I was intoxicated. You also refer to the dog on the balcony, which I do not apologize for trying to help a helpless creature that was stuck between the railing and the floor of the balcony. You find fault for being a humanitarian and caring person, which says a lot about you. I rather err on the side of humane treatment then worry about your criticism. What are my personal problems, that I was framed by the city manager with the help of Pete Gonzalez and the former police chief Carlos Garica who could not get the FBI to prosecute me, but they pushed hard to send me to prison with Atkinson and others insisting I be ruined, because it served their purpose and the rest of you went along like sheep, when I was the only one with no personal agenda on the commission. I assure you, none of what has been happening at the city would have occurred with me there, but I was an obstacle. it is very obvious I was framed, especially when they themselves destroyed the evidence that would have proved who picked up the check from the finance department. They shredded the log who signed for the check and destroyed the copies of the check. So, I think some people like you want to justify crucifying me and are delusional in their effort to create a perception that I am a thief and everything you blast me for, because it serves your conscience to justify electing people like the mayor and the mess the city is in with Cabler being allowed to do as he wishes. He even watches TV while at work, because he does nothing, other than manipulate others to meet his needs and commissioners who keep there for life. He is like J Edgar Hoover that knows how to keep people in line to get what he wants. He was a cop and had no experience as city manager and has managed to manipulate to get a severance pay contract worth over $220,000, plus a guaranteed job contract for life and can watch TV without worry what anyone thinks.

    1. Yes, Pat, it was Troiani and Ortiz that poured alcohol down your gullet that led to the po po pulling you over. You forgot to blame Cascos and Valadez, too. Also, were you in any other county in America they'd have administered a blood test. If you were so innocent why didn't you take the test? Don't wanna answer that one, huh?

  9. Anonymous, your criticism is lodged against me, but like I said I am not running. So, let's go back to the candidate that is running. Do you criticize me because you want to see Eddie elected or is it because you believe that what Eddie has done and support his special interest agenda is the right agenda for our county. If so, then do as I do and sign your name to your posts. Stand up for Eddie if you believe in his agenda and do not focus on me, but point out the marvelous qualities you admire about Eddie's leadership and what his track record supports that he will do for us as county judge. Sign your name and support your candidate.

  10. Eddie is not good for Cameron County and I agree Mr Ahumada is not the issue here plus we don't know the whole story. Media and others who gain to profit ruin people's reputations. I dont think its unfair to throw lowblows at someone and judge him without knowing truthful facts.

    2. Meant to say I think it's unfair. The topic is not about HIM the topic is about Eddie Treviño. I think its petty to attack someone who is giving us information that other ppl in office WON'T. The problem is Treviño not Mr Ahumada. People keep bashing him for what? For giving us information on the candidate? Hes not the issue.

  11. Pat, I was on the fence but now knowing Dan associates with the likes of you I, and my whole family, are voting for Eddie. Btw, why don't you ask your boy Dan why he didn't resign after he announced? Why don't you ask him why he wore his campaign button to Commission meetings more than once? Why don't you ask him why he's getting huge contributions from LNG interests and greedy out-of-County real estate interests? We've seen his campaign finance reports, heard his bullshit excuses. His association with you is the straw that breaks the camel's back.

  12. Anonymous, you are Eddie's boy blogging and the best reasons you give in support of Eddie are petty attacks on Dan. If that is the best you can base electing Eddie who has scamed citizens to enrich himself and special interest, then hopefully the readers here will realize that Dan is a far better candidate. Dan is not perfect, but I prefer him over a scamer.

  14. In this life you have to respect ppl whether you like them or not. I understand bashing candidates because it's run off time and ppl want to win but this man has nothing to lose or gain by posting this information. Show some respect for him or yourselves if not the readers of this blog. If I want to read ghetto comments Ill go to Facebook. This is the main reason I don't read El Rrun Rrun anymore.

  15. Jennifer, if by "ghetto" comments you mean comments that are against Pat and his boy-du-jour Dan, then I guess you are right. That being said, look who you are defending. Pat has had a shady history and bullied everybody from public commenter to commissioner during his tenure as mayor. Dan always has a self-interest when voting and will abstain or be absent for any votes not associated with one of his interests. The County roads around Harlingen are a mess and much of that area lacks decent infrastructure. Jennifer, you claim we have to respect people. Answer me then how can we support a man who has disrepected his constituents, of which I am one, time and time again. There are hard truths that we must deal with. Truths like Pat will so readily settle a grudge that he would never give any of his perceived enemies even the slightest chance. Pat is a vindictive, awnry man and anyone who knows Pat does not associate with him and every knows anyone who associates with Pat is bad news.

    1. Anonymous at 1:59 a.m............What you are posting about Pat might be true,but, the fact remains he isn't running for office .Pat cannot hurt the taxpayers but Eddie will . Trevino is even worse "news" than anything you've been posting about Pat.If there was any justice in Cameron County , Eddie would be in prison, not running for office to enrich his cartel buddies.

  16. In politics you know who are your true friends, and I am so very proud of the friends that have stuck and believe in me. People who are driven by hate and those who continuously bash me when they know I was found innocent and bash me are the bullies. I was a good mayor who tried to do what was right and always stood up for the people of Brownsville. The only bully on the commission was Atkinson and your reference to public comments is unfair, as I always expected the commentators to follow the rules. When cmentators did not, I had to enforce the rules. That is called doi g my job to maintain order, but you elected Tony and want to elect a other self serving politician who prefer to enrich himself and his friends. I support candidates like Dan that will stand up to special interest when they want to hurt our community. And, you are special interest when you seek to use me, instead of the facts to promote hate.

  17. I beg to differ Anonymous 1:31 PM. I have a great group of friends and family who know and support me. Your problem is that you have an inferiority complex and must spend your time putting me down, as bullies always do in a cowardly way. I stand before you without fear and could care less what you spit out. I stand for what is right, never sold out and never befitted, which is why the effort was made by those who saw me as a threat to remove me. Good guys do not finish last, we do prevail and the difference is noted when compared to Tony Mtz and Eddie Trevino.

We are united and see through your bully tactics, intimidation tactics, lies, and all the whining you post on the blogs. You are the problem and the coward that is not willing to face people that you lash out against for working with others to make sure your boy Eddie Trevino gets the message loud and clear that him and Carlos Marin can no longer pull the wool over peoples eyes. We are voting for Dan Sanchez. Today, I made calls, emailed and texted my friends to vote early for Dan Sanchez, as I am sure others are doing.
