League City - Truth and Facts about City Councilman Thomas Cones by Council Candidate Enrique de Leon

Incumbent League City Councilman Thomas Cones has two challengers for his position 3 seat, Mike Lee and Enrique de Leon. The following letter was posted on Guidrynews by Mr. de Leon in response to a recent mailer by Mr. Cones:

Recently Mr. Cones sent out mailers in an attempt to confuse voters by identifying himself as conservative and honest. I would like to set the record straight by pointing out a few facts and truths about Mr. Cones.

First, in a letter written on April 4, 2006, announcing his candidacy, Mr. Cones states, “our tax rate has gone down for the past 4 years and I voted for each decrease.” Fact is that in 2002, Mr. Cones voted against a city tax decrease. The rate at that time was .6525 per 100 and the proposed tax was .6500 per 100. Despite Mr. Cones voting against the motion (4 to 3), the tax decrease passed.

Full text of letter.
