EDITOR’S NOTE: The following commentary is from local citizen and apparent candidate for mayor Kenneth Benton, come the next election in 2016.
By KENNETH BENTON
Some of you remember old Jim Springfield, who was elected to princely heights as the CEO of our former community hospital. His way or the highway, everyone was too afraid to speak up until it was too late.
Lesson learned? Harlingen. Now we have Prince Goober “El Rotund One” Chris Boswell leading for the charge to destroy freedom and fun, first by giving free reign to oppress to the Police Department, and now by taking away your rights to make an ADULT decision of whether or not to smoke (I confess, my 14 year old grandson threw away my last pack away …. so)
Thankfully, with (former Police Chief) Whitten gone, the police aren’t harassing everyone,even though the streets are mostly still empty at night.
Boswell has been chastened by the negative response to the Bass Prto give away and his handling of the “Boswell” Tower.
Hey Chris, I know you hate me, but I can help you fix that one. R.K. doesn’tknow everything. In fact, I submit he doesn’t know anything. Hey the attached article should make us think. But Obama isn’t Harlingen’s problem. Chris Boswell and the Old Guard are.
