Rumor: Municipal Judge Ben Neece Considering Run for City Commission, District 4, in 2017

Municipal Judge Ben Neece
A man I recognized as a political advocate and downtown property manager stopped me on my way into the Los Ebanos Blvd. Post Office:  "I've got one for you," he called out.
"Ben Neece is going to run for City Commissioner, District 4, against John Villarreal," he continued.

"I don't know about John.  We've had all these meetings about improving downtown and John says he just doesn't have the time for it because of the family business.  If he doesn't have the time for it, why did he run?" the informant continued.


City Commissioner John Villarreal
We've since learned that Neece is indeed "considering" such a run once he retires in August from his long-tenured service as Brownsville Municipal Judge.  No announcement.  No campaign treasurer in place just yet.  Merely "considering."

Indeed, Ben Neece, if elected, would immediately change the dynamics of the young, inexperienced city commission with background in running a downtown business and keen interest in preservation and renovation the city's historic center.

    1. He's not an independent Pat, you idiot. There are more than two parties in what would be a nonpartisan race. Pendejo.

  12. My vote is with the judge, John has done nothing for our district all he has done is kiss ass, trying to move up in the elite, what a disappointment of a Brownsville City Commissioner. He needs to stick to what he know and that is to sell tortillas.
