Greg Windham Speaks Out

Posted in Commissioners Court, Precinct 3, Road Issues, Transportation, Williamson County at 10:03 am by wcnews

At his blog, Democratic candidate for County Commissioner Precinct 3 Greg Windham has a post up, Fiscal Responsibility and the Cross-County Corridor, w/videos, (see below). Detailing the issues and asking for support. Here’s an excerpt:

It is completely obvious that a great majority of people living in this county are absolutely united in their opposition to the Cross County Corridor.

I believe they are right on target. A huge highway cutting through the middle of our beautiful county is advantageous to truckers, companies shipping nationwide, and trash trucks.

The citizens, on the other hand, are left with more carbon emissions, more pollution, more urban sprawl, more taxes to provide the infrastructure, and a much uglier place to live.

It doesn’t have to be that way.In my tenure as county commissioner I will roadblock 29, fight the cross county corridor, and use our funds for priority projects that need completing now. There is nothing wrong with looking into the future, but our commissioners should be taking care of the task at hand rather than peering into their crystal balls.

Commissioners aren’t elected to be fortune tellers. They are representatives of the people in their precincts.

The first video is of Windham out doing the nuts-and-bolts campaign work:

The second video is his 3 minutes at yesterday’s WCCC meeting:

And the third one is an overview of Precinct 3 and he explains the differences between him and his opponent on transportation:

Nice work. Give ’em hell Greg.

    I appreciate Greg’s mention of the grossly inappropriately and very questionably awarded contract to Martin and Salinas, done with only the most perfunctory procurement process, the “Request for Qualifications.” Then to have Mike Weaver, whose questionable practices with CTRMA were well documented in the Comptroller’s investigation of that highly questionable body, are well documented.

    I also appreciate his mention of the cherry picking of questions at the Liberty Hill propaganda fest categorized as an “Open House.” I had some six questions submitted by the deadline that weren’t addressed, and after the session, I got an email from a “Les” reportedly with the County Road Bond program, who said staff would be happy to have a “meeting” with me to discuss my questions. I replied that my questions were submitted for discussion in a public forum and that the answers deserved to be heard by the public as well, and that I would not meet with them.

    Spin, spin, spin. If these roads were so good for us, why would we need to spend $1M of our tax dollars for a purpose NOT approved by the voters in order to sell them to us? I’d like THAT question answered, too.
