What do expect from a county that raked in 1,238,000 USDA $$$ in 2009?
Seems like Goliad Commissioners Court and others continue to consider any progress as a negative. Could it be that they feel threatened by anyone new coming into the town - they seem to be clueless! They seem to waste so much $ constantly opposing others and hiring attorneys - Goliad you must have lots of $ to throw around - people in Goliad you shouldn't continue to vote for those irresponsible individuals to represent you.
11 years ago the concept of 9/11 against the world's only superpower was unthinkable. The Navy was shrinking in every possible way. After 10 years of war, we need to train new pilots to replace those who are retiring and moving on.
Yes, today it sure seems like poor planning to sell the airfield 11 years ago for $1 and it sure seems like Goliad is populated exclusively by socialists whose interests are in greed, extortion and demanding farm subsidies. But you want the BRAC commission to have 100% clairvoyance and have predicted 9/11 and the subsequent need to expand training bases in Texas. That is too much to expect from anyone. Show me your posts from 2000 were you predicted all that and then I will agree with you that this is "government waste."
My prediction is that the Baron & Adler law firm is going to end up tarred and feathered and run out of town.
The Navy doesn"t want this. Look for the fire, not the smoke.
I see federal government waste and the need to get rid of BRAC. The federal government sold the property for $1.00 in 2000. Why?
Eight years later the property is offered back to the Navy for $675,00. What poor planning by BRAC and the Navy.
The county would have made a good profit, and the federal taxpayers would be in debt for the payment.
Two years later the Navy offers to pay $2.63 million for the property. How did the property gain so much in value in only two years?
Now the county's greed set in and they turned down the offer.
And their lead counsel is named James Walker Faninn. You people are going to get creamed.
