Texas Progressive Alliance - Blog Roundups

The Texas Progressive Alliance is enjoying the May flowers as we bring you this week's blog roundup.

Texas Oil and Gas Accountability Project is A BIG BUNCH OF MEANIES according to a major industry publication. OGAP is so mean for "setting up shop in Texas" and requiring that industry Drill-Right Texas. And, TXsharon is really, really mean on he blog Bluedaze: DRILLING REFORM FOR TEXAS.

Off the Kuff had a discussion of the city of Houston's term limits, which are currently under review.

CouldBeTrue of South Texas Chisme wants to point out that border violence precipitated by poor drug policy has nothing to do with immigration reform. Think about it. Don't let fear mongers fool you.

Adam at Three Wise Men gives us the skinny on the upcoming midterms.

Gorena Reports Corporate Contribution

Local News, Notes and Events
 Posted by WhosPlayin on 2010/5/2 16:03:55 (1696 reads)

Since Lewisville Councilman John Gorena no longer wants to have any contact with me, I'll just have to throw this out there and see if any of our readers can explain it.
Open in new window
In John Gorena's campaign finance report, he reported a $50 campaign contribution from "Sazon International Inc, Q Coleman". Where you would normally report an individual's job title and employer, was "Event Planners" and "The Event Network".

We did find this LinkedIn page for Q Coleman (a person who owns Sazon International).

Since it's still illegal (and wrong, I might add) to accept corporate contributions, we're assuming he just reported it wrong. Would be interesting to see a copy of the check, wouldn't it?

Frisco Group Launches new LISD "Rumors" Page

Lewisville ISD Notes
Posted by WhosPlayin on 2010/4/27 1:40:00 (1600 reads)

Back in December, we told you about a "Rumors" page that Lewisville ISD started. At the time, we were frustrated because despite having documented evidence and the actual statutes of the law LISD trustees broke by holding their retreat without properly announcing it, LISD essentially posted an entry on the "rumors" page saying "nuh-uh, we didn't".

The group of Frisco residents within the LISD portion of Frisco, "We Are Frisco" has launched a new page on their website meant to counter what they believe are more misleading entries on LISD's rumor page.

Check out We Are Frisco's Rumor Page.
