Bill Miller BBQ lawyer on my show 1:35pm
(Various emails signed Mayor Garza aren't really from him)
The mayor should never have promised Toyota to "try to limit" development on land near the proposed Toyota plant because the city does not own or control that land. It's private. The private owners weren't asked, and made no promises. It's a case of the mayor having a larger mouth than brain.
But The Miller's have to remember that without Toyota they probably won't be selling alot of homes. So maybe everyone should compromise, instead of taking the hard line, on both sides.
Don't buckle, Miller family. Don't do it. I would spend a few million before I capitulated to a worthless human like EG. He needs his ass kicked really good.
Garza you stink! Face it you made a promise you had no business making. Like most politicians you stuck your foot in your mouth; now start chomping.
I just promised
Toyota that land because it the right thing to do for the children
of San Antonio. I know better than you how to spend San Antonio's
money. That's why you elected me!
Brad, I think we ought to Recall every Idiot that was on the Council during the Toyota Debacle--all persons under Indictment or serving a Sentence are Exempt.
Who's minding the fort folks? No one. Someone should swing for this screwup. You want to see Fred Astaire reincarnated? Watch the city bureaucrats dance around this one.
I don't usually go to Bill Miller's but I may start.
I wish our city council would pull their heads out of their respective asses, excuse my language. I can't stand how our representatives and mayor have dorked up other projects (PGA VILLAGE!!!) and act differently from how the city majority wants them to. I believe that since the Toyota buffer zone rightfully belongs to Mr. Miller an excellent, philanthropic businessman, he should do whatever he desires in respect to the land. I must make clear, however, that I hope a compromise can be reached so that the Toyota development is not threatened in any way.
To promise a protected area around a new plant without consulting landowners is a perfect example of a self-serving, egotistical man who really, really thinks he has power! How dare he think he speaks for all citizens of San Antonio! Had this land been owned by a city hall crony, this wouldn't even have made the news. I hope the Bill Miller family does exactly what they want to with their land.
