Not as good a City job as the $170,000.00 plus expenses of living in Hollywood PR person, who promotes Houston to Hollywood for movies and has inked 0 movies for Houston in two years.

The pretty young former TV reporter was also promoting herself for a reality show about her life. No one has signer that deal either.

Not as good as the former law partner of the mayor who got $6,000,000 of the $20,000,000 allocated just to find people who still need help after hurricane Harvey, two years after it happened.

Mayor Turner now admits he knows the guy.

But his resume is worth it says the mayor.

Law degree, but no license. 18 months as an intern working for City government or She Jack.

His specialty is governmental relations.

And now Turner is on TV whining about billions that the state took for hurricane recovery, and didn't let him and his lackeys whack it up.

From Twitter:

Greg Abbott
@GregAbbott_TX
Two years ago you DEMANDED the State provide Houston with advance funding to respond to the hurricane & predicted dire results if you didn't get it.

In Sept. 2017 I immediately handed you checks for more than $100 million. Today 35% of that remains unspent.

Where'd it go?

The state of Texas has taken over spending federal money for flood mitigation. But the state has failed to expedite previous spending—Houston is still getting money for Ike recovery. This is a money grab by the state to spend it in places outside Houston and Harris County.

I thought intern's didn't get paid, they got experience out of it.

Never heard if Monica was paid.

There have been whispers that’s what this is about.

Can anyone point to just one major US city run by the socialists that isn’t a sewer of corruption and crime?
