Enjoy your weekend.... (UPDATED!)

Friday is my 12-yr wedding Anniversiary, so I won't be blogging until next week.


Until then have a great weekend and here's a little grist for the mill....



There's been an ethics complaint sworn out against Terry Lowry, it's not on-line yet but some good Samaritan saw fit to mail a copy of the letter to my house outlining the charges. It was an unsigned envelope with a font adress, no handwriting. (In case you're wondering)


I'll have more on this next week, but I've given Mr. Lowry a chance to respond before going into further detail.

So far it hasn't been listed on the ethics commission's on-line website I'm not sure what (if anything) that means.



UPDATE:

Whoa....

(Metro announces $49M budget shortfall, KHOU staff, KHOU.com)
The Metro Transit Board announced on Thursday that Metro will have a budget shortfall of $49 million this year.

The board blamed a decrease in ridership and lower tax revenue for the shortfall.

The shortfall has slowed spending on Light Rail construction, and the board was asking Metro staff to develop other ways to cut costs.
Mark Greenblatt blasted this out on Twitter about an hour before the story hit the website.

It should be noted that local anti-rail activist Tom Bazan has been predicting (and tracking) this for years.

I'm sure this news will dominate the weekend.

  1. The ethics committee is barred by law from even admitting they have received a complaint until they adjudicate it. Anyone can complain about anything, so to prevent character assassination through continuous complaints being publicly filed they are all held confidential until they are ruled on by the committee.
