Today's Stuff

On this day in 2001, Tony Sanchez announced his candidacy for governor.  He went on to spend millions of dollars of his own money to fund his campaign.  The end result was not good.

Today Tano Tijerina announced that he's running for county judge.  (Photo courtesy of Pro8news.) 

Let's hope this Laredo businessman has better luck than Tony Sanchez.

And in city council news, Councilman Carlos San Miguel of pool fame presented an idea to city staff about constructing a "doggie" park in his district to accommodate our four-legged friends and their masters.  He made mention that it's not expensive to build the park amenity.  But with budget deficits being so common at city hall the last several years, a colleague had to remind him that money is tight.
It's not very expensive, but, you know, when you don't have money, you don't have money.  A Quarter Pounder isn't expensive, but if you don't have three bucks, you can't get the Quarter Pounder.
Good for Councilman Roque Vela Jr. for expounding on the virtues of fiscal restraint.  But he then went on to talk about building a park in his district along Bartlett Ave.  Oh well.
