FONTENOT: “THE LAST MAN STANDING”

Don’t take our word for it look at the facts. Commissioner Todd Fontenot is not paying any respect to what local experts or the voters think about some of the most important issues effecting the citizens of this county. First take the hot button issue of deciding what to do with the old Walmart building. We have discussed it before. Former County Judge Phil Fitzgerald and company purchased the building, but experts have said they paid too much and it is cost prohibitive to remodel it into what they had planned to use it for. So what are people running to be commissioners for the next four years saying about it?

EDDIE LOWERY (candidate for precinct 3 commissioner): “The county owns and leases several buildings around the courthouse in order to house all of our county offices and this is a large expense. The original plan to house all of these offices under one roof in order to cut expenses (and relieve the parking situation around the courthouse) was a good idea but it was not carried out with the best plan. The county has already spent the money to purchase the building, money we will not be able to recoup so we should examine every possibility and see if there is a way to put its potential to use for the county. If it is not possible to renovate the old Walmart building so it will be a financial asset to the county, our only other option is to sell it, thereby putting it back on the tax roll.”

HUNT (candidate for re-election precinct 3 commissioner): “The Walmart building was one of the biggest mistakes. I wish I could have that vote back. I will have to say that was one of my biggest errors as being county commissioner. I have called for this building to be sold and be put behind us.”

TODD FONTENOT (candidate for re-election precinct 1 commissioner): Criticized the county judge and anyone else that wanted to sell this building and purchase space that was more cost effective for the taxpayer.

MIKE MCCARTY (candidate for precinct 1 commissioner): Says it is a money pit and never should have been purchased to begin with and that taxpayers should be tired of all the wasteful spending. Second, take the extra million dollars taxpayers are now having to kick in to provide healthcare for county employees. Todd Fontenot implies that this is a new problem and that it may be caused by poor decision making by the new people on commissioners’ court. Melvin Hunt calls the old guard of Phil Fitzgerald, Lee Groce, and Todd Fontenot the “evil empire” and the cause of much of Liberty County’s financial problems. Mike McCarty is a Republican and Republicans recognize that much of the strain on Texas families finances, including insurance, has been caused mostly by the lack leadership in Washington D.C. Todd Fontenot is possibly the only countywide official who openly supports Barack Obama and the “spend our way out of debt” the Democrat have endorsed in D.C.Don’t take our word for it. Read what they have said or ask these gentlemen where they stand on these issues. In fact, examining other issues, the choice becomes more and more obvious for conservative and independent voters. Fontenot is truly the last man standing and we can no longer afford to stand with him.

Sure. ""Spend our way out of debt"" is working so well, Obama, and democraps (Fontenot, Hunt, Fitz, Groce, Kirkonis.)
Sixteen point 17 TRILLION dollars and counting.....
(paraphrased from the Music Man) that's "with a capital T, and that rhymes with D (democrap), and that stands for dumbasses," see:

Mike McCarty, I couldn't have said it any better. Todd needs to step aside. He has been involved in all the Hurricane IKE scams and is also a spend thrift. it is very easy to spend someone elses money. We need some one that will look after the taxpayers money as their own. "I LIKE MIKE"

LC's awash with hogwash (as usual.)
This time, it's part of the Advocate's old online assassination clique. Using his screenname of txfilmmkr (a SHSU failed film major, sans employment) he went to the military, then law school. His biggest claim to fame being, as a champion foul ball chaser in the Astros bleachers; he finally opened his own 'law' practice, peddling no fault divorce packets, out in Katy.
In addition to the laughable guitar arrangements, of stolen copyrights, which he published online; he now surfaces as the star attorney for the "hog wild" lawsuit, filed in Mark Morefield's court. What a scene, to see a fledgling attorney get creamed. A copyright pirate representing copyright pirates. What a show!!!

There is a preacher down in Oak Island that has it all figured out. He talked his deacons into changing the formula by which he gets paid. He had them change much of his salary to "expense account" so he does not have to help us pay taxes. Praise the Lord? (and pass the plate)

Eddie Shauberger is Liberty and Chambers counties version of Tom Delay. Oh according to campaign finance reports, didn't Shauberger get some of that money from Tom Delay that Delay was convicted for? Just saying...!

In addition to being a fraud, Eddie Shauberger likes to touch his daughters.
