League City municipal election update - 3/17

Candidate Forum

The League City Chamber will sponsor a candidate’s forum for the LC City Council races. It will be held on Thursday, April 20th from 6p – 9p at the City Council Chambers and will be shown live on Channel 16 as well as replayed from April 20th till the May 13th elections. Please make plans to attend and hear what the candidates have to say.

Butler Longhorn Museum (BLM)

A City Council workshop with the contractors and city staff who have worked on BLM has been scheduled at the site at the corner of Coryell and Wisconsin.

The workshop will be held on Monday, April 17th at 6p.

If you have a desire to get the full story on BLM, and want to see how council plans to extricate us from this project; make plans to attend this meeting. Hopefully we can stop it before it becomes another Big League Dreams.

It may have been a good concept at one time, but the process has been so flawed for so long that there is no way to recover from it. It’s time to stop throwing good taxpayer money after bad and cut our losses before it becomes a $4 or $6 million dollar white elephant.

I have said for several years that I don’t think the city should be in the development business. If the museum is that great of an idea, then let the Friends of the Butler Longhorns or private developers or a non-profit build it and run it.

I’d rather the city use the $2M to put some sidewalks on Beaumont Street.

Candidate Updates

The following position 3 candidate websites are up in addition to Mike Lee:

Enrique de Leon: http://www.vote4deleon.com/
Incumbent Tommy Cones: www.thomascones.com

Monday, March 20th at 5p is the deadline for write-in candidates to file with the city secretary’s office.

Tuesday, March 21st at 5p is the deadline to remove your name from the ballot if you have already filed.

I understand there is a growing movement among the D’s to draft Chris Mallios into the position 4 race as a write-in which would be a fruitless, although entertaining exercise.

After all if Mallios actually files for office, he would have to back up his rhetoric with real ideas. Plus, he would have to break his unnatural fixation with me.

A conservative Republican can only dream…..
