Former San Antonio Mayor Ed Garza Backs Perry Re-Election


Texas Insider Report: SAN ANTONIO, Texas – “Gov. Perry has upheld his proven track record in bringing Texas to the forefront of the global economy, having helped provide the people of this city & state the jobs and opportunities they need to prosper,” said former mayor of San Antonio, Ed Garza, endorsing Gov. Rick Perry today at a grassroots event in San Antonio.    

“His leadership and conservative principles are what cities need to grow economically and remain competitive in today’s market.  These values are to be emulated as they foster an environment that welcomes jobs and success.  I cannot think of a better governor for Texas and it brings me great joy to endorse Gov. Perry in this year’s general election.”

Ed Garza served eight years as an elected public official. In 2001 at the age of 32, Garza became San Antonio’s youngest mayor in modern times. He served two terms and prior to that served two terms as a City Council representative. 

Garza was elected in an unprecedented fashion by garnering a cross-section of political, geographic and socio-economic support; based on his platform of sustainable economic growth, modernization of the city’s governance structure and balance growth for the city’s under-invested southern sector. 

His efforts helped bring Toyota to invest more than $1 billion in San Antonio’s economy and create more than 5,000 jobs in a new manufacturing facility in south San Antonio.

Mayor Garza has been featured in Texas Monthly, Urban Land Magazine, and CNN and listed in Hispanic Business magazine as a “most influential” Hispanic leader.

“It is a great honor to receive Mayor Garza’s support in this year’s general election,” said Gov. Perry.

“Mayor Garza has made a remarkable and lasting impact on the city of San Antonio.  His vision of improving and expanding education and economic development has allowed San Antonio to flourish.  Partnering with the state, Mayor Garza was instrumental in helping bring Toyota’s manufacturing facility to the city’s south side, an addition of more than 5,000 high paying jobs,” said Perry

With the addition of the new Texas A&M University campus, Gov. Perry has proposed the implementation of several education initiatives.  Among them, a four year tuition freeze for universities, locking in the tuition a student pays as an incoming freshman for the next four years and the expansion of the Virtual School Network so that students who do not attend a brick and mortar high school can receive dual credit opportunities and graduate.

This REALLY shows you how BAD WHITE is as a candidate.
I repeat:
Make DAMN sure we elect every REAL CONSERVATIVE possible to serve in the TEXAS Legislature so
they CAN DO SOMETHING POSITIVE to put TEXAS back on track and OUT of this LIBERAL RINO death grip.
Perry is a CINO………….unfortunately BILL WHITE is OBAMA CLONE.

I guess the Mayor is a Demonrat—I don’t know. I will say this; the days of Conservative Democrats and RHINOS are over with. Get on the train, get off the tracks or get run over–Constitutional Conservative is the name of this train! Bill White—your so much bad history!!

I am convinced that we could do better than Smooth Hair (hide n seek) Perry. Who seems to be missing when the real issues are at hand and need his acton! Bill White is another numb-brainded zombie fo Hussein’s. I have never liked voting for the better of the two evils…you tend to wonder which one is really the evil one. I wll NOT vote for White, and a non-vote for Perry would be a vote for White. So it is definitely a dilemma. We MUST vote in a CONSERVATIVE Texas legislature to stop the RINO from causing any more damage to this great state or country! GOD BLESS TEXAS and GOD BLESS AMERICA!

I may be wrong but I believe Perry can be convinced. He’s shifted quiet a bit the last couple of years and started reading the tea leaves in his campaign in the primary. It’s a lost cause for our senators, especially KBH. If this is not a ploy to get re-elected, Perry might be OK–especially after the drubbbing he took from everyone over that highway–maybe that trip to the woodshed caused him to lean more conservative and listen to the people–I really don’t know.

Lets see — Have the wing nuts touched on the 18 to 20 Billion Deficit, and where Smooth Hair is going to get the dough to balance the State Budget, or are you going to let him pull a Bush – of not facotoring the costs of the two wars? I thought the wing nuts were partial to Term Limits – but they are supporting Emperor Perry for a 4th Term? What kind to double Tea bagger talk is this?
Hey, psssst, wing nuts, your favorite candidate in Arizona already raised taxes this year – maybe Perry should follow her lead instead of taking 280 million from textbooks and education!
Maybe Texas needs additonal high school dropouts and lesser student attainment scores to beat out our sister states – Alabama and Mississippi.
Let’s hear some wing nut solutions instead of all this blessing to Tejas and America. Do something, or is NO the limits of your political dialogue?

Mr Telesforo SanAnto, You ask for solutions, here they are: What should be done immediately is cut all social services and funding activities to undoumented, ILLEGLE immigrants. That right there is probably is enough to get rid of any deficiet. I would get rid of the anchor baby law. I would begin a 5 year plan to espounge our nation of foreign ILLEGLES. I would make Gov. Brewer the Border Czar and what she says would be cast in stone. Nuff said!!!

PS You would be the first to get his sorry @ss kicked back across some border– (I would find some way to deport you or take away your citizenship!!)
Incidentally, whenever you want to move to Alabama or Mississippi, please do in all haste. Those Southern boys over there may convince you much better than us.

Mr Telesforo SanAnto, It’s not no…..but HELL NO!
Hell No to illegal aliens and to the Demo rats like you and Bill White that create sanctuary cities like Houston. Hell No to feeding, educating , providing health care and supporting every citizen of 3rd world countries that manage to illegally cross our borders.
Hell NO to the Progressive Liberals like you that would trample the Constitution of the US.
And as far as Geo Bush,
Hell No to all you Liberals that voted for the wars and then condemned Bush for it. Hell No to you Liberals that let other countries attack us and not do anything about it….. Can you say William Jefferson Clinton? Hell No we will not listen quietly to all your liberal BS on Lame street media and let you paint us as the problem in America.
The biggest HELL NO will resonate on November 2, 2010 , so in general
HELL NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If we have any sense we will all vote for Perry. He may not be perfect (none of us are) but I guarantee you, Perry can and does stand up to nobama, and Billy White is in nobama’s back pocket. So what if Billy didn’t show his face when nobama was in town, it’s a good ploy to fool the voters, but he’s a Demon rat just like the rest of them.

Texas is Open for Jobs, we are one of the most affleunt states in the nation, and like it or not, it has been with Rick Perry at the helm. Why “fix” something if it’s not broken (yes, it has cracks, but not “broke”)? Let’s continue to prosper Texas with Perry standing against the current WH administration, instead of bringing Billy in to sell us down the nobama road.

Last, but not least, ask our Lord, Jesus Christ to give you direction on how to vote according to His Good Book. We will not err when we take His direction into consideration. God Bless Texas.

Mayor White’s tenure left Houston with massive deficits even when revenues were at record levels. The City of Houston now has more long- term debt per capital than the entire state of California and analysts agree that we are ” worse of financially than the rotting city of Detroit.” The $10billion to $18 billion PROJECTED (not actual) deficit of the state of Texas is due to declining revenues caused by the recession and because the federally mandated expansion of certain programs and also the added burden of the necessary growth in programs that were also caused by the recession. It is not due to fiscal mismanagement by our current state government. In fact, while he rest of the country was shedding jobs, Texas added more jobs than the entire population of the City of Ft. Worth. Houston’s financial issues are directly the cause of fiscal irresponsibility on Mayor White’s part.

See here for details: http://www.scribd.com/doc/37422227/Citizens-for-Public-Accountability-Houston-s-1-7-Billion-Operating-Losses

The last thing this great state of Texas needs in the state capitol is a spend- happy Obama proxy who will pave the way for the federal government’s continued assault on our economy and our values.

And lastly, it spoke volumes when the Houston Police Officers Union endorsed Perry over their former boss, Bill White.

There you go again Conservatives, using the Lord’s name for political purpose and in vain. You’re wolves in sheep’s clothing. The problems we have is because of your beloved Bush’s policies. Obama may not be perfect, but he’s trying to clean up the mess Bush left. Conservatives just love to hate, hate, and hate on others.

Perry blamed God for the BP oil spill. You still want to support a governor who snubs God? What a way to show love to God you Conservative hypocrites.
