Robert "Capt. Bob" Sanchez Announces Plans to Run for Mayor 2011


Here's another mayoral announcement. Restaurateur Robert "Capt. Bob" Sanchez has announced that he plans to run for the post in 2011. Businessman Ernie Hernandez also recently announced that he was withdrawing his name from the At-large B City Commissioner race, because he plans to focus his energy on the 2011 mayoral race.

Reminds me of old times.



Yes Melissa, I will run for Mayor of Brownsville in 2011. I cannot stand still and let same names jump in to feed their own ego rather than really doing something for the community. And I also feel, Mayor Ahumada can win a seat in Austin, Texas or even Washington D.C., therefore vacating so that I can seek the Mayorship of Brownsville. A ship I can truly navigate properly.

Mayoral Candidate 2011.

Oh, my God! These guys just make it too easy for me!

I am beside myself. For one of the few times in my life I am at a loss for the proper words to describe the laughable possibility.

He actually said "I cannot stand still and let same names jump in to feed their own ego."

Hellooooooooooooooooooo? Has he lost all sense of reality? Yes what we need is another personality cult as mayor to keep the Commission divided.

We are desperate for a business man or woman who runs a major Brownsville corporation. A uniter with a vision. Not someone who has never been in a library.

The people who flood Southmost's library to help their chldren will love to know the man who thinks it is a waste of money wants to be their mayor.

Here a reality check BOb - you are so devoid of any sense of Brownsville and its residents, I question whether you have ever left you magical palace.

BISD libraries are not open after work so that parents can take their children and help them with their homework. The children of Southmost, the heart of Brownsville, do not have the privilge of computers in their homes. Without the library they have no computers. BISD cannot afford to open their campus libraries at night. That would be taxpayer dollars also.

UTB - have you every been to UTB? They have a vary small children's section. They have no computers for children. Since you have never been in a library you could not possibly know the computers for the children in the public libraries are not the same as for the adults. They have filters to prevent the children from seeing certain things. They allow the adults to use their computers without fear a child may see something.

Have you ever been at a university. Do you understand people are paying thousands of dollars a semester of hard earned money for quiet. What kind of moron proposes little kids running around a univeristy library while students are craming for tests? Someone who has no knowledge of reality.

Oh, has anyone noticed we are 2 1/2years away from the election? This also means 2 1/2 more years of sorry charlie.

Sorry for the rant on the libraries but we all know how I feel about children and education - I think I have been clear -

If Robert Sanchez runs and wins, we're going to be glad how much the national media ignores us. I don't want him in front of a camera speaking on behalf of Brownsville. He'll make W seem articulate.

Rather than rush to criticize Robert Sanchez's (or Ernie Hernandez's) qualifications to run for mayor in 2011, as many preceding commentators have chosen to do, we should instead, first, wish these gentleman luck for seeking the city's highest elected office, and encourage more men AND women to do the same.

Brownsville is full of capable, intelligent and articulate individuals who continue to remain in the background, and often criticize, rather than take action and lead.

Robert Sanchez and Ernie Hernandez may not be a lot of things, but regardless of one's politics, they still have the ganas to be put through the ringer and run for elected office.

I'll give them that.

May I assume that all of the above posters are picking up the gauntlet and accepting Josh Caldwell's challenge to run for office?

Hi, Josh. Miss your reporting.

Wondering how much ganas it takes to credibly state:

"Mayor Ahumada can win a seat in Austin, Texas or even Washington D.C."

Stupidity trumps Machiavelli almost every time when you are looking for an explanation.

And we complain that people do not exercise their right to run for office. If this type of scorn, ridicule, and contempt is going to be showered on anybody pursuing office, no wonder we do not have any good civic minded citizens running for office. They must surely be scared.
