FBCGOP Lincoln/Reagan Dinner a Success

FBCStaff-Those that attended the FBCGOP were treated to top tier speakers, a few surprises and a well organized event.  With Ag Commissioner Sid Miller handling the MC duties and Senator Ted Cruz celebrating the huge win in DC, the FBCGOP Lincoln/Reagan Dinner was a smoothly ran and entertaining event.

One of the surprises of the evening was Ried Ryan President of the Houston Astros with a fun video of the World Champion Astros.

Another enjoyable surprise was Lt Guv Patrick’s introduction of keynote speaker Cruz.  Lt Guv Patrick also recognized Tx Senators Huffman and Kolkhurst for their outstanding contributions during the last legislative session.  Both played substantial roles are were well deserving of his praise.   A well deserved recognition went to Phillis Worsham receiving the Volunteer of the Year from the FBCGOP.

The opening remarks included a video from Guv Abbott, Atty General Ken Paxton, and State Comptroller Glenn Hegar.  This got the crowd fired up and ready for Lt Guv Patrick’s and Senator Cruz’s remarks.

Chairman Jetton was gracious in recognizing his committee with well deserved recognition.  But some of the kudos should go to Jetton for his leadership and drive to make the event a success.

Hats off to FBCGOP Chair Jacey Jetton, wife Fanny and the LRD Committee.  Well done.

Hubris or Cultural Based?

FBCStaff-All os us have seen someone who is texting and driving.  We know better than to honk our horn at them to avoid being involved in a road rage incident. If someone is texting while driving we know they lack judgement or they would stop texting and driving. Unfortunately their behavior affects everyone and we’ve know it is prudent to avoid them and the possible conflict.  But what do we do when our politicians behave this way? Do we ignore their egregious behavior or do we speak out? Here’s are a couple of examples:

1st example:

The Missouri City Council had an item agenda that was discussed fully. The council asked questions and the builder explained in detail their plans which should have allowed the item to pass. But two council members had decided to vote no before the discussion and when the vote was taken they defiantly voted no. Was their actions wrong headed or culture based?

2nd example:

At a recent meeting a solution was presented that may have alleviated some of the speeding problems on Glenn Lakes. A proposal was made for signage at Glenn Lakes and Misty Hollow Dr. informing drivers the Glenn Lakes bridge was being replaced, use Misty Hollow to Lake Olympia Parkway to Highway 6. The distance driven was the same mileage, Gl had 7 stop sign LOP has 2, GL speed limit is 30 LOP is 40, GL is 2 lanes and LOP is 4 lanes and GL has over 200 drive ways and LOP has none. When you look at the facts presented it is a viable solution.

The city employee stated the city didn’t have the resources for a sign.  The city doesn’t have the resources to spend a few hundred dollars for a sign to redirect traffic and possibly furnish a long term solution.  It does have money in the same budget to spend millions on sidewalk repairs.  It is a simple matter of misplaced priorities.

Why wasn’t the city open to the solution? Like the person texting and driving if you honk your horn at them you may spark off road rage.  Some on council already have their mind made up before hearing what you have to say.  This wrong headed attitude has spread through city employees and it comes from the top.

Hubris or cultural based?

Union Bosses Go After Sen Huffman

FBCStaff-The union bosses closely aligned with the democrat party are going after Texas Senator Joan Huffman. Accusing the senator of union busting, the union bosses are mad even though they were exempted from the bill.
“Our membership was not too pleased with Sen. Huffman,” said Brian Wilcox, communications director for the Houston Professional Fire Fighters Association.”
What did Sen Huffman do that was so egregious to the union bosses?
“Huffman sponsored SB 13 in the regular session of the Legislature in 2017 and a similar bill in 2015. The bill would have ended automatic payroll deductions that the state allow for certain public employee unions. Instead of allowing workers to send dues directly to the union, employees would be required to find another way to pay their membership dues. The bill exempted firefighters and police, but still drew their displeasure because they saw it as a union busting bill.”
She did the job she was elected to do.
“Huffman had argued that Texas needs to get out of the union collecting dues business and leave it to unions to do their own collecting.”
However, not all unions are displeased with Sen Huffman.
“While firefighters are fighting back by helping Huffman’s opponent, some police union groups have taken a different approach. The Houston Police Officers’ Union and the Texas Municipal Police Association have both backed Huffman’s re-election, her campaign said.”

Sen Huffman is a fierce advocate for criminal justice and the LEO community knows she is a friend.  This doesn’t set well with union bosses and their friends the trial lawyers.
