I like how Taylor left this issue alone...

Mayoral candidate

As for Sculley that will be awful if she leaves.

And our pathetic express news made sure it was all cleared before they report things...

In keeping with candidate husband scandals:
You ought to publish the other article about Ivy's husband collecting $400,000+ city money as rent supplements for his rentals.
It was titled "Ivy's conflict of interest"

Someone not paying taxes versus a potential conflict of interest that can be easily remedied?

Yeah... while there are things I absolutely don't like about Ivy, this article was really stretching to try and find a problem. The fact that they got Henry Cisneros to agree with them (really? Mr. Countrywide is talking about conflict of interest?) really did not help the article's credibility.

Was Cisneros the most corrupt mayor we have had or did he accumulate his ill-gotten wealth after leaving office? I cannot assume a quote from Henry to have any validity.

You can clearly see the different tones in this campaign. I'm glad Ivy finally got on TV with an add and it was positive.

Default Like it or not,

Cisneros is very smart. Articulate, smooth, Harvard and MIT educated. Brilliant...Too bad, eh ? Henry may not be as good a person as most of us, Wil. I know. However. No the most corrupt, were the Good Old Boys that were members of the Good Government League of years ago. Henry was the beginning of the end, for the GGL. I believe you are uninformed about much of what Henry C. did for so many people in this city. If you do not know what exactly - look in Wikipedia and peer at his many accomplishments, honors, awards and affiliations, particularly the affiliations, and the trust awarded him by many, many, organizations. Then come back and post again on how horrible Henry is while remembering that all, politicians are opportunists...chameleons. Speaking of corruption?
Nixon - Agnew were a hard act to follow. Amazing. Run out of the highest offices, Particularly Agnew. THAT- was some weird stuff for the entire Country to accept and were to me, somewhat unbelievable events at the time.... I watched Julian today on C-Span in front of a House Committee up in D.C.- testifying on the goals of HUD. Even committee Republicans were aligned behind him today. Too bad also, Wil, eh ? Funny too. I derive much amusement from this of course. The GOP must be already posturing for the right positions for entry into next year's elections political ads. Of course.


Mayors here of San Antonio are innocents compared to some former Mayors of Detroit, Mi . Read under the name of Kwami Kilpatrick also. Compare your notes and then write back with your reasoning on these topics.
Kwami Kilpatrick is one of them alright, serving now, a twenty eight year sentence in a penitentiary for quite a few very serious convictions within the last year- racketeering, blackmail, corruption, accepting kickbacks and bribes, using public funds for personal use, are some; his wife possibly an accessory to Murder. All sorts of sordid details exist implicating more than a few city employees of Detroit whom were also on the take during his tenure.
Kilpatrick is currently appealing these convictions. Owes the City of Detroit millions for his " Ill Gotten " activities.

Heard an ad from an 'independent' guy today who encouraged Ivy's supporters to be sure to vote in order to confound those who are trying to 'suppress your vote'.

I'm new to San Antonio politics and have not figured out whose votes are being suppressed yet (and how that is being done). Sounds like an interesting subject.

The voter "suppression" referred to is probably the negative campaigning being done on Leticia's behalf by the firefighters' union. The goal of all negative campaigning is to discourage voters whose support for the target is low from voting at all. After emerging from a 14-candidate primary, the supporters of any of the other 12 who now side with Ivy probably fall into the low-support category.

Congrats to the new super extreme lefty winner of the election today. I voted for one of them.

I've heard some negative ads aimed at Ivy's opponent as well. Anyway it was difficult to choose between these two if you can believe all the neg and pos ads.
