Does anyone really believe Commissioner Conley will show up to defend his dismal voting record on Commissioners Court during the upcoming Republican Party Candidate Forum scheduled for May 3rd or the Candidate Forum in Azle on May 8th? It ain’t gonna happen – not Cut-n-Run Conley!
The following by TEA Party leader Dawn King, is in response to an article in the Weatherford Democrat titled “Is Conley scared of election opposition?”
[snip] Mr. Conley is afraid of losing his $84,000.00 sweet deal! The Conservative minded, Parker County Tax Payers have been paying this bill long enough without proper representation. Time for change! Voters are smarter and more informed than ever. We are well aware of Mr. Conley’s voting record… and it’s not good for the tax payers. The Parker County TEA Party put those commissioners on alert that continued to raise our taxes AGAIN because they couldn’t make the needed cuts. Thank you Mr. Conley for your service… your out! gone! dismissed! New conservative blood is coming in. You can now return to your Democratic party. [snip]
Aw shucks Dawn, why don’t you tell us what you really think! Admit it. You want to fumigate the courthouse the way we did when Dobbs, Plugge and Horton held Commissioners Court hostage. Are you suggesting it is time to purge county government – starting in the courthouse, of ‘good ole boys’ who are more concerned with saving gov’ment jobs and benefits than CUTTING SPENDING???
Did we replaced the Dobbs, Plugge, Horton court with the Riley, Conley, Peacock court? Sure looks like it! Seems the only thing that has changed are the faces; certainly not their actions!
Oh yes, the Commissioners voted to raise their own pay to that outrageous amount. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think it is $84,000 + a $12,000 per year vehicle allowance. That’s $96,000 per year – are you kidding me? For what? Have you seen your taxes go down? Have you seen Commissioners Court protecting property and gun rights? Have you seen positive results from any strategic planning? What clean, job producing industry has been enticed into relocating to Parker County? What are we getting in precincts 1 & 2 that could in any way justify $96,000 per year for these good ole boy pothole filling Commissioners?
The only true conservatives on the court, Roth and Renfro will serve a coupe of terms and move on. Anyone want to bet the other three will hang on to the bitter end – until voters actually get sick enough of their power grabs and big spending bloated budgets, to vote them out of office?
Commone Dawn – tells what you really think!
