Open My Eyes

I am being educated by anonymous commenters in one of my posts. It's getting inconvenient to keep going back to an old post everytime there is a new comment, so here is a place holder to keep the topic fresh.

I am learning about the novela of South Texas politics. There are so many connections.

So, how does Sylvia Handy fit into all of this?

Thank you both for your comments.

This is the best I have ever read.

I am not a politician nor a politico. But, after reading this I will volunteer my time for Judge R. Garcia and educate my family and friends on these issues. Also,
I'll make sure they will go to the polls.

Thanks,
Shaine

shaine,

Man where do I start. Sylvia Handy made her way into politics because she replaced a corrupt politician. No sooner had she been elected that she went about doing the same things the crooked politican was thrown out for. She started an old fashioned corrupt political machine, full of corruption and a rewarding of jobs and contracts based on loyalty or kickbacks. Now she is seen as a major power broker who can deliver votes with an army of paid politiqueras, many who are on the county payroll. On top of that she is ruthless and has little to no honor. Look at Ramon Garcia he has a knife still in his back because she would take money from Ramon in exchange for loyalty and votes and then run to JD and his dirty but big dollar sponsers for more money. You see "East meets West" means the east corrupt machine meets the west corrupt machine. Their blessed corrupt child is JD. Here is a politician willing to work with corrupt and illegal elements so that a few can get rich off of insider deals. The feds are looking into Mission already and know about Handy. They may go down they may not. The voters seem however to already know about JD because he is behind in the polls anywhere from 12 to 20 points. That is the reason for the negative JD attacks.

JD wants congress though and so we we will see him again. He also has ties to a number of corrupt factions who will use him again for their political campaigns. You see Ramon is winning not because people love Ramon but because they are concerned of more and more corruption through the likes of Handy's current love child JD.

If you get the child you get the momma, that why they call her the beast from the east.

I believe that Co. Judge Ramon Garcia may be ahead because people are finally opening their eyes to the corruption which breeds in Hidalgo. They see that he has done well for the County and his heart is really into it. He doesn't do it for the money, but so that our kids will not have to deal with the corruption that is so prevalent in this area.

I wil not vote for Ramon Garcia because he is alligned with Omar Guerrero. Remember, "tell me who you're with and i'll tell you who you are."

Listen, that may be true, but you tell me who you'd rather have in your corner, a bunch of corrupt officials from east to west (Sylvia Handy, JD Salinas, Joe Flores, Beto Salinas, FNB and owner and majority of loan officers, let's not forget the drug dealers he's dealing with to go out and get votes for him) or Omar Guerrero, who's got personal problems, which have come out in public? With Mr. Guerrero, he can get help for his problems, but, how can you change the crooked habits of these corrupt officals who have been at it for so long? Think about that and then let me know who'd you rather vote for.

I'd have to agree. Besides the only proof tha Ramon is with Omar is that his opponent Laura joined JD's group. You naturally assume that Omar will turn to Ramon. But unlike Laura, you don't see an Omar sign everywhere where Ramon's are. JD and his gang seem to be hand in hand at every location they have.

The fact is Omar's got his own and family money to run his election. He's the only won that hired a company to do so.

Lastly, I'll cut Omar some slack. I'll give him his day in court. Whatever happened to innocent until proben guily?

I almost feel dirty reading about all this.

Just a note about Laura and maybe some other co-appearing candidates. It's a practical matter for candidates to tag along with others in events for shared publicity. So, if you are going somewhere where there will be press, some other candidates (probably not opponents) will ask to tag along. Co-appearances may simply indicate professional courtesy.

The only signs i've seen of Omar are in the delta area where he is being helped by Aron Gonzalez (the recently indicted school board president). Aron is also helping JD Salinas in that area. This tells me that JD and Omar are aligned. Also, the Bee Club did not endorse JD or Omar, but did endorse Ramon Garcia, Ricardo Rodriguez and Laura Hinojosa. This tells me they're aligned. Are you sure that Ramon and Omar are aligned? Then again, in the West, i've seen some sample ballots being put out by Billy Leo (La Joya water district pending criminal investigation Billy) where Ramon, Eric and Omar are aligned. I'm confused, but one thing's for sure, after reading today's informative newspaper article on the District Clerk's race, I know I won't be voting for Omar.

There is no such thing as courtesy in this election, Shaine!!!

Shaine, you're from Mission. Look around. You'll never find site with Laura and Ramon, or JD with Eric.

JD, RDz, Laura, Jesse C. and Albert G. are all in the same group. DA Rene is also with them, along with Tito, and Oscar.

Albert is going both ways, though.

This group is concentrated evil!

Also, the Bee from the Delta are are idiots! They don't mean to confuse people, it just that they'll throw an endorsement to anyone with the cash!

Laura "hinojosa" Quintanilla brings her hubbys law firm into the courthouse if she gets elected Garcia Quintanilla, Palacios. That is Terry Palacios uncle of RicoRdgz for the 92nd and godfather to Lauras child. Lets look at the facts sure Omar has personal problems and if he is guilty then he will be tried in a court by his peers. Laura brings NO govt experience to the table. A lot of volunteer work that is evidence of a privlieged lifestyle. Iam not bashing her because she is wealthy I do so because is unqualifed. She will surcome to influence of her husbands law firm and the Palacios family even more if Tricky Ricky, and JD get elected. On March 7 do the right thing for our community..Do not vote for these puppets.

SO you ask why does S.Handy give not only RicardoRdgz and JD salinas almost 10Gs each well her husband is pretty sucessful contractor who does guess what kind of work roads, infrastructure, and development. You already know about the money that the county is vying for so just follow the money trail it goes from the grants to banks to whomever the commssioners court wants. We have a county judge we need better commissioners!!

I have a question - does anyone know if Syvia Handy has a college degree?? I read an article in the Monitor that Sylvia Handy demanded her $90,000.00 paycheck (which we the tax payer pay) - this question may seem trivial to some, but I want to know the answer to my question. There are many college graduates who spend thousands of dollars on education and are still unable to secure a job, and here we have Sylvia Handy with the FBI investigating her & her candle ritual practices demandingf that we the tax payer pay for her lifestle.
