Silenced . . . again

Update: These comments have now been deleted from the ‘awating moderation’ queue at the Advertiser. So much for balanced journalism. Cheerleaders only allowed.

Ronnie McDonald’s decision to resign his duties as Bastrop County Judge will be discussed separately. The purpose of this post is to publish comments that are once again languishing in the Bastrop Advertiser’s ‘awaiting moderation’ queue.

Bastrop county’s disaster = a politician’s career opportunity. Isn’t politics wonderful?!

Here’s a thought for a future project in DC . . .

Pave over the reflecting pool to make way for an airstrip! It would be very convenient for politico junkets and undoubtedly benefit the local economy.

Perhaps the developer of the proposed Central Texas Airport and his associates could assist with campaign funding as they did in the fall of 2009 a few months BEFORE the 381 Agreement was approved by the Commissioners Court and officially signed by Judge McDonald.

    Wasn’t it the big fundraiser on Oct. 13, 2009 at Threadgill’s in Austin for McDonald where Jim Carpenter and his associates made lavish contributions? And wasn’t the CTA’s 381 agreement pending before McDonald’s court at that time?

    OMG! You’re right!! The 381 was PENDING, not yet signed. That happened in 2010. Will be corrected immediately. This issue has been lingering far too long and a resolution to the airport folly is long overdue . . .
