Charles any dumb-ass, even a city commissioner, should know the difference between Encouraged and Required.

What's up with this?

Dear Editor,

February 16, 2009

On the day of the deadline to submit city projects for the national economic stimulus package, the City of Brownsville had not submitted any projects. The city manager was out of town, which prompted me to ask for help to submit some projects. We submitted a request for $112 million, of which $65 million is being considered. The Weir Dam project is one of those projects. It is Brownsville's hope that we can get the funding that will allow us to immediately start design and construction of the Weir project to fulfill the requirement to build the projects by the end of 2010.

About $65 million dollars in projects is being considered for Brownsville by way of the stimulus package to be signed by President Obama. We should have submitted $400 million, but, unfortunately, the deadline caught Brownsville off guard. Fortunately, the Brownsville/Matamoros Weir project did make the stimulus package for the president to sign, at least I hope so. You can also go to and search by city for all the projects being considered in Texas.

Kinest regards,

Pat Ahumada
Mayor of Brownsville

I do not know if this is really from Mr. Ahumada or not, but I go forward with this next comment based on the assumption that Ms. Zamora vetted this before posting it. If it is authentic, it is one of the most incredulous things I have ever heard, on many levels.

If we take at face value what is being asserted, entire departments, including the City Manager should be, at a minimum, seriously reprimanded. Along those same lines, the cavalier attitude with which this was written is astounding.

If this is authentically from Mr. Ahmuada and the process he is describing is not accurate and he is aware that it is not accurate the citizens and voters of Brownsville will be very, very disappointed.

Today I drove through Elizabeth park and saw the Sombrero festival that will be held there being set up for the following three days. What struck me is that there are MANY signs outside promoting beer companies. Have you people noticied that there is an elementary by the name of Putegnat next to it? What are our kids looking at when they finish there day of school? Beer promotions? Give me a break!

Yes, it is authentic and it appeared on the letters to the editor section of the Rio Grande Guardian online newspaper.
