Really? Celebrating a win for doing nothing? I hope they do a better job in their council seat than they did campaigning. Didn't take much effort to stick a sign in the ground. But that seems to be par for the course around here. We all know they'll be gone by the next vote, just like everyone else that gets into city council. Now we'll all be reading about their various skeletons in the closet or their family or how they have a sordid past. That's just more life in Pelican Bay drama. My money is on the fact that it will be more of the same. Let's just see hwo much gets done by the time they leave. Probably nothing more than the last group...

Can anyone tell me where this thread begins? I posted earlier and it did not show. My email is [email protected]
I would like to say that I DID in fact go door to door and speak with people. But it's common knowledge that candidates with signs do better than candidates without. There has been a recount requested, but I think the results will stand so I would like to congratulate Oberg. After speaking with citizens I became aware of alot of issues so I will run again when a place opens.

Most people use the electronic voting machines so a recount would be useless and a waste of your money. In Texas, manual recounts are not normally free. The requester is usually required to put down a deposit of up to $4000 to cover the expense and the requester is refunded or billed the difference. You might want to keep that in mind if you were the requester because you will more than likely have to pay Tarrant county for it.

State Law also requires those running for municipal offices to file campaign finance reports. It doesn't matter if you didn't spend anything, you still are required to file the paperwork or you are in violation of state law. Anyone who files a FOIA request can obtain a copy of the records which show what was spent and who donated what to the campaign.

I agree with Get Involved, you can join the Citizen Advisory Committee which strives to improve our little community through volunteer projects and programs. Another great way to volunteer is to join our fire department. You will get to meet some great people and will receive free training.

Thanks for your interest in helping our community!
none of your business

Here is my take on the November 2012 election results. One slumlord's good buddy who is expecting personal favors got elected, and one slumlord's employee and good buddy who expected personal favors from the council and Gilbot, didn't get elected. So once again, most of the honest voters spoke out, and the slumlord's and their good buddies lost another election, and no longer control the city council.

Which is why slumlord and Gilbot supporter and part time councilbum Robin was so late for the first meeting after the November 2012 special election, which she also helped to force on the voters and the Pelican Bay citizens also had to also pay over 10k for and just because Robin and Sue refused to show up for council meetings. By the way, isn't being almost 30 minutes late for a meeting, without a valid excuse, and missing role call at the begining of the meeting, the same thing as completely missing a city council meeting? Can a council member who shows up late after missing role call even legally vote on anything after that in that meeting they technically missed?

And the slumlord's loss of power over the city council in the November 2012 election was also why Robin was so pissed off during the council meeting, that she then left early and was also overheard saying that she quit on the way out the door. Which is interesting because everyone else including me could have sworn she quit after the May 2012 election, when Sue quit.

SO, Rusty now ran 4 times for city council, and lost 3 of those times.

You think "Git-R-Done" stupid bought a clue yet that he's not wanted misrepresenting the honest voters on the city council with a slumlords not so hidden personal agenda?
