Thanks to the many People who prayed for me during my illness. The months from June 27,2006 until this day has been some of the most painful in my life. The Kidney Transplant in 2003 was a breeze compared to this.God my higher power marched me straight on through it. I had my last surgery December 13,2006 and I did good. I did not tell anyone because I did not want it in the press. Sorry press you have been good to me, but I did not want the General Public to think I was sick , they might not understand this was the good surgery the reconnect. I am doing fine just home recovering and getting ready for what God has for me to do. I will be ready for March 3,2007 and working towards May.
Happy Holiday Season and Healthy New Year!

Once upon a time people talked about Leo Chaney and I was on the front line defending him. I have been on the front line fighting for a few people who turned out
just as bad as People said they were and I did not see it for a long time, but when I get it, I get it! Chaney has put about 100 people on the street who live in the Ash Creek Mobil Home Park. The Park has been there for 50 years in the same place and never did the City of Dallas use Code enforcement to make the Owner fix up any thing.The Mobil homes belong to the people and most cannot be moved. You see Leo Chaney allowed the City Attorney in fact he encouraged the City Attorney to file criminal charges on the Owner just as he did with Mr.Lee Bilal Mr. Bilal went to jail and to his death ,this owner surrendered and was forced to close the Park while the zoning was pending before the City Plan Commission. We need a revolution in Dallas. Elected Officials who can use their Power to move people from their homes with no remorse should be ----. The reason these people are being mistreated is that the new homeowners in the 300,000 homes do not want to look at the Mobil home park, the Mobil home park was there when the new homes were built. Chaney thinks the people in the 300,000 homes will vote for him for higher Office. I wonder did it occur to him that if they do not like poor white and Hispanic people what would make him think they will vote for a poor black one? Mr. Chaney will need to answer to his God for this one.
The DISD Director of Human Resources, Troy Coleman resigned at DISD. The first thing out of Ron Prices mouth was " it is because he's Black". When in the hell will it be ok to fire a Black person when he or she is not doing their job? Does being Black guarantee you a job for Life? In my job as Director of Dallas County Health and Human Service I hired all races and fired people who were not doing their job, race does not hide incompetence. Mr. Coleman might have stepped down because he wanted to and to remove hiself from a bad situation.The Public statement said he resigned so Ron Price give it a break. When a serious race problem comes up no one will listen to you and on that occasion you might be right.

I told Dr.Hinojosa I would help him for free. As a manager I know the first thing you do about before hiring a person in a position who claims some sort of title that requires a license from the State is CHECK THE STATE AGENCY that issues the license. See I learn that from my last job because I hired people who had to be licensed and reported if the committed an offence against the license. DISD Teachers are required by law to be license so they should have known to check with the State it is FREE online. The man could be good at what he does but it is illegal to claim something you are not that is FRAUD. How can the FRAUDER check on the FRAUDEE.
Once again someone call Dr. Hinojosa and tell he need me, because I would have checked the State site and simply deleted the CPA claim if all else checked out. Very simple process but you need a mind to think of problem solving, however I would
have told the superintendent I had an integrity problem with Mr.Fryar because he knew he did not have a CPA license so why add it to your Resume when it is not a requirement for the job.
Someone call them,They need help bad. Sooner than later that Board will be sick of this type of embarrassment and take some action do not say I did not offer to help for free. I know people hate to admit they need me but they do. I love former County Judge Lee Jackson.Lee called upon me to Direct the juvenile Department along with my department after the Death of its Director, Laura Miller called me to help turn the Plan Commission around, you have heard any bad news from City Plan Commission or questions of integrity since.Many people call on me for help I will not name them all but, I knew Lee and Laura would not care if I used their names. I want so bad for Dr. Hinojosa to be successful, a hometown man,from the DISD return home to make it better. There could not be a better story with good outcome.

I made a very serious offer to volunteer to help Dr. Hinojosa. I know that the people
in his arena will not want me to work for the District for fear of what I will find and what I will recommend to the superintendent. Also the Political types that want to run the District do not want me down there. Poor Dr. Hinojosa need help bad He has a lot of people but what do they do? When he ask Rena Martinez to take care of the Preston school problem, he had no idea that Mr. Martinez would do it in a Political move.I know the man is in shock that it ended as it did. How could a Hispanic not take care of Hispanic parents in a situation like that? But Rene has been in the political arena a long time and that is how he solves problems. Is his only job to deal with Hispanic parents problems? Do they have administrative personal to deal with parents problems of all other races?
Many people ask me daily if I am going to enter the City Council race. I tell them I do not know. I am having a talk with myself, God and family members to see if I want to spend that much time serving others full time. I have spent the adult part of my life serving the public and trying to have a family many times doing more for others then my family. I know if I run I will be full time because I do not know any other way to be, however Public Service has become so dishonest and Public Officials are so into themselves and what they can get for themselves that I do not know if I can operate in that environment. I have seen Good people go to City Hall, Commissioners Court, State House, School Board and others and become money hungry, making deals to benefit themselves or their friend with no consideration for the public. Maybe other people did that in the past but at least some part of the deal was about the People but now a day its 90% about self and 10% the people. I have one health issue to solve and I will make up my mind in late December. If you are for me do not leave until I say yes or no. If I run I will have a platform with issues that will make the quality of life better for the residents of District 5. Stay tune.
I need Three Good White Elected Officials on the DISD Board of Managers to step up and Save the DISD. When Hollis Brashear was there and he and Ron Price made such a Race baited mess on the Board I spoke out against them and still do speak when wrong is being done. The White trustees did not allow them to kill the District,made it sick but not dead. Carla Ranger is a new Trustee and very well educated and does her homework. I have been to the meetings and watched her work. The fact that she had an item placed on the Board agenda so angered the Hispanic Board members at least Jerome Garza that he has deleted her from his mind and does not intend to work with her at all. He also does not plan to respect her as a fellow Trustee. I have known Jerome and respected him a long time and I kind of know how he feels to be locked out of a system so long that when you do get a little power you use it, but Mr. Garza is hurting his own people and he is creating a racial divide on the Board and in the Community. The statements that he has made in the past week go beyond racist they are down right mean and ugly. The one I most remember is Mr. Garza saying" Blacks have got all the jobs at DISD because of the protection of the Court Order" and then he counted all the Black Principles vs. Hispanic ones hired lately. The one thing he forgot is that when the Court Order started 30 years ago blacks were the ones being discriminated against. Hispanics were not the majority of the District and were considered white and could attend any school they wanted or be hired in jobs Blacks could not. I even spoke at the meeting about settlement of the Court Order many in the Black Community were very angry with me know I see why.The point being why would a Trustee use that theory when speaking about employment in the DISD? There is not a District that is solid black,Brown or White in Dallas. Every Trustee has all races in his or her District. The Hispanic Trustees have turned out to be worst then the Black Trustees who used color all the time to get their way. Ms. Ranger had a right to put the item on the Agenda, why would Mr. Garza become so angry that he cannot move on? In the latest rife Garza had a Pct. Moved from Rangers Dist. He finally said it was because there were schools in the PCT.named after Hispanic people and he wanted to make sure the Students knew who the people were. What a lame excuse. Every student should be taught the History of the Persons name on their school. I'm sure Ms. Ranger would have gladly agreed to the Pct. being moved from her District since she was getting more people from the Wilma Hutchin District. Why did he not just tell her or recommend it in an open meeting? Why did he feel the need to go behind her back tell the legal staff to change it and present the changed map at the meeting much to Ms. Rangers surprise some of her District was gone. What really takes the cake is when Ms. Ranger ask the
DISD Attorney who requested the change he replied" that is Client privilege information" .How in the HELL can a Public employee tell his boss that another one of his bosses has Client privilege when he is dealing in a public forum with public information? DISD Board is once again out of control. The Minority Board members are killing the District.
Chairman Jack Lowe, Leigh Ann Ellis, Nancy Bingham please stand up and save the DISD.
I am a graduate of the District, I have worked for the District, I have run for the Board, I pay tax and very high tax since your exemption is lower then any other Government 36,000 vs. Every one else at 42,000. I want you to represent me and my Tax money. I want you to stop the Minority madness by doing the right thing for the Students and Taxpayers. Start voting for the real issues and stop going along with one group over another. You know some of what is going on is not right yet you condone it. Mr. Lowe your father would have stood up and said what was right, he would make them respect one another or al least let them know they were wrong. Would
the Whit Folk please stand UP!
