|Jerry McHale of the MCHALE REPORT|
Both legendary Brownsville bloggers reposted today our article, "Despite Going 0-6 in BND and TSC Races, Car Dealer Mike Hernandez III Is Not Going Away," with one important, major difference.
Juan posted the article in its entirely, while Jerry lopped off the last two paragraphs that contained references to State Representative Rene Oliveira and State Senator Eddie Lucio III, both advertisers on his blog.
|State Senator Eddie Lucio III, OP 10.33 Operative|
|State Representative Rene Oliveira|
Oliveira has "represented" Brownsville for three decades, but done zero, nothing, zilch for the city. Rene is simply out for Rene, one of his infrequent legislative efforts designed to allow the Linebarger tax collection firm to generate more revenue. For that little legislative sleight of hand, Linebarger hired Oliveira and, likely provide the bulk of his current income, although he also is retained by BISD as an attorney.
Doing nothing for 30 years would almost be tolerable in contrast to the actual fact that Rene has again and again fought AGAINST Brownsville taxpayer's interests.
|Former UTB President Juliet Garcia|
After the historic 4-3 vote of TSC trustees to preserve the historic community college as a separate entity, Rep. Rene Oliveira went straight to Austin, introducing a bill to REVERSE the effect of the vote, to, once again UNIFY to two institutions, totally misrepresenting the wishes of the TSC Board. It took considerable effort by TSC Trustee Adela Garza, talking to members while Oliveira's house bill was still in committee to avert castastrophe for TSC.
Rene Oliveira was successful introducing legislation to allow the ultrarich University of Texas to NOT pay $11,300,000 rent due the taxpayers. Roll your tongue around that figure, visually our hardworking taxpayers meeting their yearly property tax obligation.
No, Representative Rene Oliveira is a walking advertisement for term limits, a total waste of so-called representation for his district, including Brownsville. Oliveira is a joke.
I don't appreciate Jerry's editing out any reference to him in my article.
