Constable Resigns, Cameron County Commissioners Court Blitzkriegs to Name Successor During Election

Constable Cesar Diaz
Adolph Hitler would admire the Cameron County Commissioners Court's blitzkrieg to quickly name a successor to Precinct 5 Constable Cesar Diaz, immediately after he resigned from office.

You see, the commissioners, slow to react to actual needs in the community, are lightning fast when politics are involved.  Tad Hasse, dammit, you were right!

Cesar Diaz, defeated by Eddie Solis 3262-3193 or 69 votes in the March primary, has now decided to resign his office.  Rather than wait for the election results between Solis and Republican Don Duncan, the commissioner's courts wants to simply appoint Solis as the constable.  

Boys, boys, boys!  If you're going to appoint an interim, wouldn't it make more ethical sense NOT to appoint one of the current candidates running for that office?  Or, are you so drunk with power that ethics fly out the proverbial window?

    3. Under that theory, why was Gus Ruiz sworn in if he still had time for a write in opponent ?

  3. Santos Sanchez is Cesar's second in command he will be the one getting appointed. Santos is going to run as a write in that's why county judge wants him him before he announces at the end of July.

  4. According to the Valley Morning Star and Sofia Benavides there was already a consideration in place for Solis. Now, we know a certain commissioner is pulling for him which spells a problem: who on the commission is engaging in a quorum this time?

  5. The longtime editor Bill Salter has died at eighty-four, “suddenly, and without pain or dread,” according to his wife. Salter served as editor of The Brownsville Herald in the early 1980s, before leaving to become editor and then publisher of the Odessa American in West Texas. Many who knew him thought of him as a campy wordsmith. “The word accessible is fine in its place,” he told the American in 2002. “That is to say, public toilets should be accessible to people in wheelchairs; but a word that is perfectly in its place in civics or civic arts is entirely out of place, I think, in a wider discussion of the arts. There is no reason why a work of art should be instantly accessible, certainly not in the terms which lie behind most people’s use of the word. In my view, difficult poetry is the most democratic, because you are doing your audience the honor of supposing that they are intelligent human beings. So much of the populist poetry of today treats people as if they were fools.” Local blogger Juan Montoya and then-sportswriter Jerry McHale learned the business while laboring under Salter.
