He should put that big CPS rate increase approved after the elections by the last city council in front of this council for a new vote. That way there will be some accountability for the decision.

thats my problem, and especially those lazy ass convoy workers. think how much money we will save if we buy more street sweepers instead of paying theese slobs 14dollars per to start. they always think they have the right of way when they are out there, and do not care for the safety of others. GET RID of them Julian!!!

TexasHen beat me to it. I'll give him some time, but he is not the most dynamic person to work the power boys and be a mover and shaker. Al least he is not running the city, Cheryl Scully does that.

How about something positive? You're stuck with him for the next two years and whining here won't fix that

I Agree!

Hopefully Castro will work on this... try to attract (i.e. schmooze) industries out of more-expensive parts of the country and bring'em here. But this will require our public and private universities to step up more! UTSA is working toward being a tier 1 research schools. UIW has done a lot to build up their programs but I'm not sure about OLLU or StMU? SA does have a lot of work to do to try and move up the economic ladder when it comes to bringing higher paying industries to town.

More bike trails - at least go about paving the existing trails they've started making more official at a much faster rate.

Is that a joke?

Are you talking about the Save for Tomorrow Energy Program? That'll cost you $2 a year.
