Nobody but Lina Hidalgo

#1

Post by philip964 » Tue Mar 19, 2019 9:46 am

So the Beto/Cruz race had a unexpected consequence in Houston/Harris County Texas. There was a lot of straight ticket voting. Ed Emmott the long time Republican County Judge was replaced by a newcomer Judge Lina Hidalgo. She is a young, relatively inexperienced, dark haired female Hispanic liberal.

Obviously the comparisons to AOC were made in my mind immediately. However, since November she has stayed out of the limelight, no wild tweets, etc. I hoped quickly learning what a County Judge does.

I kinda heard some rumblings a month ago about the 2 billion dollars in Harris County Flood Control Bonds that were voted for back in August. Something about the bond money would be spent in the poorer neighborhoods in the county rather than where the flooding was, but it really didn't make a lot of news.

Well she had a press conference yesterday about this big tank farm fire we have on the East side of town. Things didn't apparently go very well.

Stay tuned.

So, she's not a "judge", but the top "executive" for Harris County? Unbelievable...seems every day there's another example that there's no way of voting ourselves out of this socialist morass.
The left lies about everything. Truth is a liberal value, and truth is a conservative value, but it has never been a left-wing value. People on the left say whatever advances their immediate agenda. Power is their moral lodestar; therefore, truth is always subservient to it. - Dennis Prager

Fire is still burning.

She held her second press conference and brought more back up this time, her critics have noticed.

Mark Tice says Lina Hidalgo should speak English during news conferences. I guess there should be a nobody but Mark Tice thread, but so far he's not as interesting.

So someone said Dora the Explorer grows up, now its all I see when I see her photo. She even looks like the actress who is going to play Dora the Explorer in the new movie. (She is grown up in the new movie)

Why shouldn't she speak English at press conferences?

I wonder if Soros money made it into her campaign? Seems he has bought several seats in Texas recently, especially Harris County.

Very pretty (not that that matters), but I'd have guessed she was mid to late 30's. Does not look 20-something. (not that that matters either)

People smart enough to actually KNOW things (like air quality) are also smart enough to stay out of politics. It's not a hopeful situation.

https://urbanreform.org/harris-county-c ... -increase/

Harris country calls for maximum tax increase without a vote by the residents. The normal increase of 10 percent each year due to increased valuations is not enough.

Special thanks to the Republicans in Washington for making it non deductible.

Specifically Linda Hidalgo and Rodney Ellis have asked for this.

Thank you Beto. The gift that keeps giving.
