Is the Candlewood Suites in La Porte closing or selling? The place looks awful and looks like corners are being cut too much.
Too many

There are too many motels in La Porte for any one of them to be successful.

Thank you City Council for promoting motel development instead of providing the citizens with much needed retail.

La Porte has always chosen industry over citizens. This is just one more example.

Last time I looked, granted it has been a year or so, the occupancy rate at LP motels was substantially higher than average. That is the reason there are so many of them.
Hotels and motels are good business for LP. They feed our restaurant business. As for retail, what do you want that you can't drive 5 miles or so and get around here?
We have businesses here that won't invest in their own business, or buildings. Just look around see who has painted their buildings, who has improved the business district. These business owners are takers, they are selfish.

No... it's EXACTLY City Council's fault!!!

They have allowed our beautiful town to be littered by cheap box cutter motels... so much so that the decent ones we have in town have been degraded and brought down to the level of the lowest chain motel because of the competition!!

They are cutting each others throats competing for business!!

All in an effort to increase the tax base!!

There is such a thing as too much growth.

City Council does not care about the people who call La Porte home... they only care about the businesses they can pilfer and shake down for cash.

I've seen Clark Askins in action!!

I KNOW how he talks to people... how he hustles them!!

I have eyes to see... ears to hear... and a mouth to share what I have heard and seen.

Tic toc... tic toc.

You know nothing and contribute nothing. Just another drain on the system.

Sure... you'd love for me to give you a break.

But... I've got you corrupt Phfucks on the ropes now... and that's where I am going to keep you until I knock you the phfuck out.

Not everyone who owns a business is good at it. There are plenty of stupid, lazy people who just happen to own businesses and don't care what the neighborhood looks like. You should not indict all business owners because of a few losers.

Not all business in La Porte are on an even ground... some get treated well and are provided every opportunity and benefit they need to succeed... while others are impeded with road blocks... or more properly "toll booths" which they must pay to move forward.

It's all City Council's doing... they are destroying La Porte.

You'll find that when you go around with your eyes and ears open... you become an expert in a lot of things, Elaine.

I have more overall knowledge about the way the world works than 99.9% of the people alive today.

Mostly because I did not let public schools close my mind off to the possibilities out there and limit my thinking.

5 miles?....exactly the distance to WalMart from City Hall! I think La Porte deserves better retail than that. What business district? The warehouses? Fast Food, auto parts and repair, dollar stores, convenience stores, and beer joints, that's pretty much it, isn't it?

Sums it up pretty much.

By business district he probably meant the area most of City Council is buying up and doing most THEIR business in.

Have you noticed how much property Council collectively owns and where it's mostly located?

Hmmmmm...

It seems they also have a history of spending a lot of YOUR tax money in Real Estate and expensive dress up deals that benefit them and friends in that same area.

Hmmmmm...

Isn't it strange too... that in the last five years I have been opposing them I have been assailed with five city citations, two lawsuits and now a bogus Felony charge???

Sounds like a case of officials using their office to persecute their political opponents to me.

Hmmmm...

Didn't we JUST have a national headline story about an official who used their position to go after and harass their political rivals???

Hmmmmm...

City council can't stop a business from coming here that would illegal. the only thing business wise they can control is sex and drinking. Maybe if some of you would read up on the laws in Texas you might not make ignorant statements. Remember Ignorance can be fixed, Stupid is forever.

Well, Council certainly can stop offering financial incentives to bring companies to come here and clutter, destroy and pollute La Porte!!!

It's a scratch my back I'll scratch your back thing with them!!

I know LOTS more than I have ever said about things that are going on in La Porte!

If you don't think I've got people who support what I do all up inside and around La Porte keeping me updated on what is going on... you're severely underestimating me.

If YOU want to get into it with me about who is ignorant and who is stupid... join me on a level ground and identify yourself!!

Otherwise you're just a coward throwing rocks from a darkened closet!

You are naive to think that La Porte does not apply incentives and assistance to certain businesses and discouragement and roadblocks to others.

Ha!! I just accused Lomaxx of being frisky on another string... before I saw this!

That word is not often used here.

No, I'm not feeling frisky... I'm just sure of myself.

I have never been so sure that I was exactly where I am supposed to be and exactly what I am supposed to be doing ever before in my life.

I am about 6 months to a year ahead of schedule... and happy as a bug in a rug.

I could be coming back to La Porte at any time... any day... but not tomorrow or the next day... or even the day after that.

Maybe next week.

Maybe next month.

Maybe next year.

I will leave it in God's hands... he'll let me know when it is time to return home and claim what is inevitable.
