|Evelyn Cantu, Controlled by the Not-So-Dynamic Duo,|
Carlos Marin and Dallas Car Salesman Mike Hernandez III
|Loser Mike Hernandez III|
Hernandez III, used to closing sales, not watching the customer walk away, and Marin, a behind-the-scenes influence in Brownsville politics for two decades, are pulling out all the proverbial stops to place at least one person on the TSC Board of Trustees who will pander to their interests.
|Carlos Marin, Not Totally Avoiding the Camera|
Marin's and Hernandez's last standing candidate is Evelyn Cantu, running against Dr. Tony Zavaleta, a man with 40 years of TSC experience, reportedly not a totally likeable guy, but, nonetheless, not a puppet.
So far, Brownsville voters have totally rejected the monetary influence and other pressures of Mike Hernandez III and Carlos Marin. It's now time to pitch a shutout, yes boys, 0-6.
Addendum: City Commissioner Jessica Tetreau disagrees with the thrust of the article above. We add her Facebook comment below:
"Jim, that is completely untrue and fabricated. Evelyn is an independent thinker and not entangled in any conspiracy or organizations. She brings her firsthand experience as an educator and has worked with children and teens firsthand for many years... This is what motivates her to contribute to the TSC board.
Evelyn has never even met Mike Hernandez, and I think it's really sad (he) would make false statements about her character."
