|Commissioner Rose "Ugh!" Gowen|
Gowen has not been a good steward of taxpayer assets, joining Tony Martinez in squandering $3,500,000 on a dozen unneeded buildings in 2012, taking them off the tax rolls and offering to "convey" the city's precious Lincoln Park to the ultra-rich University of Texas system. At a meeting of UT regents, shortly after the city approved the Lincoln Park transfer, the regents in affect laughed their asses off about stealing the park from rubes.
Gowen has been a consistent, blind supporter of Mayor Tony Martinez. That's not surprising since Martinez was instrumental in getting Gowen elected the first time around.
