Just wondering what Debbie Thomas' qualifications are to serve as Main Street Director at a salary of $46,000/yr. Tell us Ms. Thomas do you hold a BA,an MA a Ph.d? What I heard was that you are a high school graduate with previous experience working for Dot Stafford at a cleaners. That being the case, if your close friend our Mayor selected you for the job, then why not select anyone of the many other employees of our local cleaning businesses??? Some will have high school diplomas, most will the desire to make a decent living, and all will be part of this nation's minority. So why you and not someone who works at a cleaners with a high school diploma? Was it the "outstanding" job that you supposedly did at the museum? The museum that is built on private family records and memorabilia? None of which you helped to create. Again, just what is your background and education that allows the mayor and this city to pay you $46,000/year? Just wondering?

But was the previous person paid this outrageos amount? If the city has a money tree growing somewhere that would be one thing, but lets get real here!

No program in this community will ever work as long as we are not united as a COMMUNITY. Do not blame any individual for the failures of the past.
I agree, some of the salaries paid for certain positions in this community are out of line. But, do all of us a favor, if you have a problem with an issue, attend Council meetings and voice your GOD given rights as an AMERICAN. Don't be dragging our fellow citizens into the dirt on this web site. I had promised my self that I would not get involved in issues on this site, but, enough is enough, if you are going to belittle one of my fellow PECOS citizens, have the cohones to post your name. Pecos is a great community and how it becomes greater in the future, is up to us.

I have gone to the city coucil I have voiced my opion but does it do any good this job is a waste of tax payers money .That means me I pay taxes in this town that keep going up every year I pay my own water which keeps going up every year .I drive on the crappy roads that they dont know how to fix Walthall is a good example .So for you to sit back and say we shouldnt say anything that is whats wrong with this town now .Nobody wants to speak up people say what you want to hear to get elected then boom nothing .People are not held responsible for there action the city employees are not managed .For politicians to sit back and say well it is only a dollar per hundred that your taxes will go up that is bullshit learn how to manage a budget quit hiring consulting firms to tell you that you are stupid that is why you hired a city engineer

Please understand, I am not attempting to cause a problem. We as citizens of this commuity have a responsibility to educate our- selves as to what laws govern. You have to understand that the Main Street program is fully funded with Motel/Hotel Tax. So, unless, you are staying at one of our local hotels: not one red cent is coming from your local taxes.

Tom Rivera...go back and re read the thread::Just wondering what Debbie Thomas' qualifications are to serve as Main Street Director at a salary of $46,000/yr. Tell us Ms. Thomas do you hold a BA,an MA a Ph.d? What I heard was that you are a high school graduate with previous experience working for Dot Stafford at a cleaners." That Tom Rivera, is not dragging one of your "fellow" citizens into the dirt. To drag her into the dirt would have been to talk about her marriage, her hairstyle, her face, etc.....now, tell us, how is it she should be paid $46,000 and what are Pecos citizens basing the salary on: hair, face, education, or clique membership?

It doent matter where it is funded from it is still a bullshit job It is a give your friend a job .The way I look at it you pay a person 46,000 then tell them to grab a broom and start sweeping because they dont do anything else .Debbies name was never drug thru the mud as you call it .The question is what is her qaulifacations what makes her better than anybody else and why wasnt that job posted .Just another one of those city jobs like all the rest if you are related you get the job or you brother cousin niece or wife needs a job there you go (PEDC) good example wife .You can not unite a town that has to many hands in the pot good example 44,000 PEDC everybody wants a payoff and I know alot of people that took one that is still with the city.

What Mr. Rivera is saying is that don't hide behind fake names. If your going to post on this own it. If you would like to know what her qualifications, ask her and the individual who hired her. That information is a matte of public record. Also Mr. Rivera was never elected to a position in the past. He ran for office serval times but never had the votes. While I don't think that job should be paid that much, it's not up to me.

Why not use a forum handle? The handle one uses doesn't change the content of the question. The question is still a valid. Does it ruffle feathers? I'm sure it does, so if the shoe fits...

Jealous of what a person sitting there getting paid from money that could be used for a worthy cause .That is a stupid job it is a good old boy job .Look at the past people that had this job .For example the last person that had it .The job is a waste of money they dont do anything and they dont contribute to the city .Nobody wants to come into a town and see trash on all four sides of this town .Use the money to clean up this town and make the trashy bus.put up fences to hide there trash .Hotel motel tax can be used for alot better things than that look it up dont go by what the city tells you it is on the Texas website .

Nothing is wrong with it when you act like an adult and don't cuss or say unkind, hateful things. But like I said, if you print it, own it by putting your name on it.

I get what you mean, but have to remind you that this is an open forum and that the rules you want established are not going to fly, otherwise the forum would be called Judy Foster's Topix ... I dont' disagree about the cussing and name calling, but that still doesn't tell any of us what qualified Ms. Thomas versus another citizen. So let's get back to the main question. Thank you.

Pos heejole! I never been here pero ya va. Mi vieja works for the city. We own a small house and we have always work hard for what little we have. Mi vieja told me she never saw the announcement telling workers to aqpply for Thomas's job. So, why did la guera Thomas get the job if she did not work for the city. A city worker should have had a shot at it, I think. Para mi, es otra chin@@* for the rest of us. Pero when its time to vote, everyone is happy and they speak to the rest of us

this job was posted internally about two months ago. i work 4 the city and did see it posted @ the warehouse. this is the job that mr. arraguey use to have. one of the qualifications was that a certain education degree was needed. i felt that i would not have been considered 4 the job since i lacked the educational background
