Home Local News Government Criminal accusations put spotlight on commissioner race Map of Ector County precincts (pdf link). Ector County’s FY 2018 budget (pdf link).  Pinterest Facebook The Ector County Precinct 4 Commissioners race has been heating up as two Republican candidates battle it out on social media about criminal accusations while and the Democrat incumbent faces a challenger whose husband formerly held the office for 12 years.The two Democrat and two Republican candidates will be on the March 6 ballot for Ector County Commissioner Precinct 4 before the winner of each primary will square off in November. Democrat candidates include incumbent Armando Rodriquez and Virginia Bryant, and Republican candidates Arlo Chavira and Russell Wright.Chavira has been airing his challenger’s dirty laundry on social media, claiming Wright is a criminal while Wright has taken the stance of: prove it and I will drop out of the race. Chavira said he found information on the Texas Department of Public Safety website while conducting a criminal history search of Wright that shows Wright was arrested in Kaufman County in 1989 for possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.“I’ve never been convicted of anything. Yeah, there was an arrest,” Wright said. “But an arrest doesn’t make you a criminal. You’re not convicted of a crime, you’re not a criminal.”Wright said he was arrested 28 years ago, chalking it up to “being at the wrong place at the wrong time.”Kaufman County court records show Wright was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia on Nov. 11, 1989, but shortly after a new case was filed. On Nov. 13, 1989 records show Wright was charged with possession of a controlled substance. That case was disposed Feb. 7, 1990 and shows Wright received a deferred adjudication for the charge. Case fee payments were completed in January 1992, the document shows.“I wouldn’t even be able to run in this race if I was (convicted) because the state law says if you’re a convicted felon, you cannot run in this political race as a candidate,” Wright said. “Twenty-eight years ago is when it happened. It doesn’t prevent me from running for office.”Wright added that he has nothing bad to say about his opponent because he is not running on Chavira’s bad faults.“I’m running on what I can give and what I can do,” he said.GOFUNDME ACCOUNTChavira also has a video recording of himself scrolling through a GoFundMe page called Wright for Change Campaign showing what he believes is a violation of federal election laws.He first found the GoFundMe page doing a Google search of his opponent and it originally showed up as a medical fundraiser for Russell Wright started in January 2017 with a goal to raise $10,000.“You know, hey, no laws broken there,” Chavira said.But the weekend after the deadline to file as a candidate, Chavira said he checked the GoFundMe account again, and while the photo remained the same and it was still listed as a medical fundraiser, the name of it was changed to “Wright for Change Campaign” and the description was changed to say that the account was to help with Wright’s campaign as Precinct 4 commissioner.Chavira said he believes Wright broke federal election laws because GoFundMe is based in San Diego and would be crossing state lines. Chavira’s video shows $2,050 was raised during the entirety of Wright’s account being open since January 2017 and Chavira said none of that has shown up in contribution reports each candidate is required to turn in to the election office.“He’s denying it. He’s saying the GoFundMe video created is copied and pasted, it’s not real,” Chavira said.Wright initially said there is no GoFundMe account. Asked if there was ever a GoFundMe account he said, “not for the campaign.”Wright said the account was set up to help pay for medical bills last year and the money was received long before there was any campaign for county commissioner. He then admitted that the account was edited, but that he did not know the changes had been posted.“The editing of the old account was something that was not even supposed to be posted. And it was taken down probably within hours of the posting,” Wright said.GoFundMe calls every account a “campaign” Wright added, saying, “can you see the confusion?” Wright said it could easily get confusing, especially if you have never set foot in a political arena before.“The GoFundMe thing, which has really raised a big stink, is a whole lot of stink about nothing,” he said. “There’s no illegalities that I had done. If posting that for a matter of an hour, I haven’t found anywhere that says I have broken the law. I didn’t collect any money, nobody gave any money to that campaign. I’m not by law obligated to report any money that I did not get from that, that I know of, from anything I’ve read. I’m not a lawyer.”Wright later said he is not worried about his reputation, quoting former UCLA basketball coach John Wooden that “reputation is what people think about you and character is who you are.”“So I’m not really worried about my reputation because my character, people that know me know my character and that’s who I am.”Wright said his focus is on improving the county and his precinct.“I don’t think that there is a hard enough effort to improve every aspect of what we do in our local government,” he said. “I feel that fresh eyes in there and a fresh person in there can really give it a different look.”He hopes to improve problems with illegal dumping, better roads, more law enforcement presence and a taking a hard look at the budget.Chavira is no stranger to the political arena, having previously campaigned for numerous seats as a Democrat, but never holding a public office.In 2004 he was the lone Democrat challenging Buddy West for a seat in the Texas House of Representatives for District 81. About a year later he announced he would file for to be the new county commissioner for Precinct 4 as long-time commissioner Bob Bryant stepped down.Chavira was a former employee of Bryant’s at Surplus City and both Bob Bryant and his wife, Virginia, supported Chavira in his campaign, but Chavira was defeated and on January 1, 2006 current county commissioner Armando Rodriguez took office.Now, Chavira is back, this time as a Republican candidate. If he wins the primary, he will either face Rodriguez or former employer and supporter Virginia Bryant.Taking a break from campaigning, Chavira didn’t attempt to run for another office until 2015 for a position on the Ector County Independent School District’s Board of Trustees.Chavira said while he ran for those offices when he was younger, he doesn’t count them because he said he didn’t know what he was doing.“Except when I ran for school board. That one hurt because I did work a lot on it,” he said. “I felt that the party, Democrats, ganged up against me. Which is fine. But that one did hurt because I really did want to make a difference.”Chavira said his focus as a county commissioner for Precinct 4 would be more narcotic officers to address drug issues in the county, identifying any wasteful spending that may be going on, attaining more businesses and economic development in the precinct and finding a solution to the aging courthouse issue.THE DEMSDemocratic candidates Rodriguez and Bryant haven’t been victims of one another’s mudslinging, but their campaigns have still evoked strong emotions unrelated to their opponent.For Bryant, her husband and the former county commissioner for the precinct has served as inspiration for her to serve the county.“After my husband passed away it has been difficult and I’m doing two things that bring me comfort. One is, I’m driving his pickup and the other is, I am channeling my emotional energy into this campaign,” Bryant said.She is focusing her campaign on the taxpayers and how tax money is being spent by the county. The budgeting process, she said, needs reassessment.“Taxpayers are the single mom out on the west side with the twin daughters who owns her home and looks at that tax bill. It’s the Ector County deputy that has been there 15-20 years. It’s my neighbor who is living on fixed income and it’s that business person across the street there from me on South Grant Street. What we do in local government directly affects people,” Bryant said.She also said she feels more proactive thinking needs to be taking place rather than just focusing on the here and now.“We have to have vision. We have to get beyond the here and now. We have to, yes, we very definitely take care of the here and now but we also have to think ahead,” Bryant said.As Rodriguez talked about what he has done in his precinct over the past 12 years as well as what he has planned, and displayed a different kind of emotion. His voice filled with passion as he talked about representing the people in his community.“I’ve been doing these things for my community all the time and I will keep on doing them until God calls me up because I want the better things for my community, where I live at,” Rodriguez said. “I’m not saying that I’m going to do something now that I’m running for public office. I’m not just doing it because I’m running for office, I’m doing it because I love my community.”Rodriguez said he has made strides in dealing with the problem of illegal dumping by getting help with funding for code enforcement officers. His first two years he was able to get one officer and commissioners helped pay for part of his salary. Now there are three code enforcement officers, he said.Business owners and neighborhoods are also helping. Businesses have provided the county with cameras he said, so they can get a picture of people dumping trash. Residents are calling in and reporting dumping when they see it, Rodriguez said.The commissioner said he also helped push for more rules and regulations for developers to abide by, requiring paved roads if the county is expected to accept responsibility, otherwise it would be considered a private road. Also, with more money allocated to the streets and highways department, Rodriguez said he is hoping to pave all of the unpaved roads in the county they are currently maintaining.Rodriguez said he also advocated for change to help make it easier for residents in his precinct to vote on Election Day since many wouldn’t vote if they had to drive back to their precinct to vote during their work day.“Now people can vote at any location no matter what precinct they live in,” he said.Looking ahead, Rodriguez said he hopes to be proactive in creating a water district as West Odessa has done.“With time I think the water might run out or possibly get contaminated,” he said. “I’ve talked to people about it and I can only give them directions, but I cannot do it myself. They have to do it and I can give them guidance and everything else.”While it may not be a problem now, he said it likely will be one in the future, especially with people selling their water to oil companies.“I will still keep on fighting for what’s better for my community and I will take some stances, heavy stances against it if it’s not good for our community.”Just The Facts Twitter Church leaders condemn mayor’s disparaging comments Twitter More Information Landgraf prepares for state budget debate Local NewsGovernment Criminal accusations put spotlight on commissioner race Social media fight playing out Facebook Landgraf staffer resigns following investigation From left to right: Russel Wright, Armando Rodriguez, Arlo Chavira, Virginia Bryant.

Can Hispanics Bridge the Homeownership Gap?

According to their figures, only 45 percent of Hispanics are homeowners, which is 20 percent lower than non-Hispanic whites.  This gap is getting smaller—in 1994, it was nearly 29 percent, compared to 26 percent in 2015, but it begs the question, will the gap continue to close over time? So who makes up the Hispanic population, and where do they come from? According to Freddie Mac’s metrics, Hispanics hail from Spanish speaking countries and can either be first, second, or third generation immigrants. Over 35 million Hispanics trace their origin back to Mexico, while a little over 5 million trace it to Puerto Rico. Less than 2 million Hispanics trace their origin to Cuba, and a little under 15 million people identify with other countries in Central and South America. In an attempt to trace the homeownership gap between Hispanics and non-Hispanic whites, the Enterprise compared median age, percentage married, percentage of those that hold a Bachelor’s degree. Hispanics median age is 33, while non-Hispanic white’s median age is 43, which according to the Enterprise is the most important factor that influences homeownership rates. Marriage rates are nearly equal, with Hispanics being married 51 percent of the time and non-Hispanics being married 53 percent of the time. Only 14 percent of Hispanics hold a Bachelor’s degree compared to 31 percent of non-Hispanic whites. Freddie Mac’s findings? The data suggests “that almost 90 percent of the White/Mexican-origin Hispanic homeownership gap can be attributed to age, immigration attributes, income, and the like. If White/Mexican-origin Hispanic differences in those characteristics narrow over time—if, for example, the difference in the average age of Whites and Hispanics of Mexican origin disappears—the gap in homeownership also is likely to narrow. “ Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days agolast_img read more

[Permanent Commission] There Cannot Be Perverse Equality, A 45-50 Yr Old Lady Officer Cannot Be Asked To Meet The Threshold Of Medical Fitness: Supreme Court

You have to be able to move ahead shoulder-to-shoulder with your male counterparts. But there cannot be a perverse equality. A 45-50 year old lady officer cannot be asked to meet the threshold standards of medical fitness”, observed Justice DY Chandrachud on ThursdayThese observations came on an argument by senior advocate Meenakshi Arora, appearing for the lady officers who have been denied Permanent Commission, that while in adjudging their suitability on merit, their intervening service records after the 5th or the 10th year of induction are disregarded, the medical yardstick that they are required to meet is that of an entry-stage Short Service Commission officer.”Women biologically cannot be compared to men, and more so after 20 years of service…there has to be gender-sensitisation in the army”, Ms. Arora had urged.At this, Justice Chandrachud remarked, “I have a slightly nuanced opinion on this. There has to be gender equality for women in the armed forces. They have to compete equally. You want to be in the Armed Forces, you have to be as fit as a man. You have to be able to move ahead shoulder-to-shoulder with your male counterparts. While the government may grant any relaxation or exemption by way of policy, it is not open for the court to do so through judicial review”But the judge proceeded to explain that there cannot be a “perverse equality” – a 45-50 year old woman cannot be required to meet the same standards of medical fitness as a 25-30 year old man.”They were available to be considered for PC at the age of 25-30 but they were not so considered because of the erstwhile policy of the Armed Forces. Now their (the Armed Forces) attitude seems to be, as it emerges from their affidavit, that ‘you went to the Supreme Court, you put up the flag of gender equality, here is gender equality in your face, what is your grievance now’? The attitude seems to be that you wanted to be treated at par with the men, so what are you crying about now? But your argument is that today, if your male counterparts are deemed fit to continue in service, so should you. The point is that they cannot apply threshold standards to you today”, he elaborated.”The theory is that the Armed Forces are for the men, for the people who can fight, and women are not fit enough for it. They are saying that now that you have got the benefit of the Supreme Court judgement, you cannot ask them to not apply the same standards to you. But that is not your argument! Your argument is that ‘apply the same standards at the same point of time’…This shows a perverse mind, that is all”, commented Justice Chandrachud.At the outset, Ms. Arora had pointed out that the judgement of the Supreme Court has been interpreted by the Armed Forces in the most literal sense. These lady officers who are being considered for PC after 25-30 years are expected to meet the same standards of fitness as that of a male officer in the 5th or the 10th year of service, but for merit, the yardstick is different, requiring equivalence with the lowest mark received by the male counterpart in the corresponding course. She had pointed out this dichotomy. “They say that they have applied the very same standards to us as that of the male officers. This approach has not been thought-through, it is arbitrary and it is used as a tool to exclude women officers where they can. They have taken equality in its literal sense and not in the figurative sense”, she had submitted. She had asked the bench if the court has so intended in its judgment. “No. We had meant that the lady officers should also be considered for PC alongside their male counterparts and that they should not be deprived of PC as against the male officers”, Justice Chandrachud had said.Justice Shah also pointed out, “They admit that at the age of 25- 30, you were found to be fit! It appears that according to them, your medical fitness is to be considered as of today, since you are applying for PC today, but they are forgetting that your consideration for PC in the 5th or the 10th year was denied (as the policy did not permit lady officers to be granted PC back then). So far as ACRs are concerned, your suitability is considered as on 10 years. However, your fitness has been considered only as of today. It appears that whatever good is there, they consider as on that day. Whatever bad is there, they consider as on today””For considering service performance, the intervening performance from the 10th to the 25th year, when you could have got PC, is not considered. No matter how many awards and honours you might have received in the intervening 15 years, no matter what service you have rendered to the nation in between! But for medical fitness, since you want PC today, so you are expected to meet the fitness of a man aged 25-30 today!”, remarked Justice Chandrachud.During the course of the initial arguments, it was pointed out that as per the Army Order of 1988, there was a limitation of 50% on the number of officers to be granted PC, 35% of the officers were to be entitled to an extension, and the remaining 15% who were not found eligible were to be phased out.Justice Chandrachud observed, “Assuming that for extension, lower parameters are acceptable, while for the grant of PC, a higher benchmark is to be met, those women who complied with the parameters at the relevant point of time for PC should at least get PC!”. “Even if the person was found fit for PC, they might have been placed in the 35% as only 50% of the officers could get PC. It was not that they were not medically fit!”, concurred Justice Shah. “It was because of the quota that those people could not get PC and only got an extension…The women officers who met the requirements for PC when they were considered for extension, those medical records must be available!”, noted Justice Chandrachud.The bench also noted that so far as the modality of recommendation from the commanding officers is concerned, the same had been rendered blank in the ACRs of the women officers. “And these recommendations are vital because they are made by the commanding officers who are in direct contact with these officers. They not only see how you turn up on duty, if you are a disciplined soldier etc but how you are in the mess, how you behave towards the spouses of other officers, other men and women. They look at you 360°, not just how you are at shooting the target. They know the kind of human being you are. We have been told that they extract work from you, so they are very empathetic towards their team of officers. The commanding officer would never desert his team, we have been told”, commented Justice Chandrachud.”The main submission that you have to answer is that why despite a judgement of this court, women officers are not being treated at par with their male counterparts starts from the bottom of your heart”, directed Justice Shah at ASG Sanjay Jain, who is scheduled to begin his submissions for the from Tuesday. “A wrong impression has been created before Your Lordships. We will respond or Tuesday”, said the ASG”It is an extremely hard service for women to take up. Look at the dedication. The Air Force has the same position, but there as high as 95% women have been granted PC. And this was following the High Court order itself! These are women who have participated in Operations Vijay, Parakram, Rakshak! These are women who have been posted at the extremely sensitive Western zone, they have been posted at high-altitudes. They are not ordinary women. They just can’t do these things today”, Ms. Arora had urged.The bench was told that the quantum of women getting PC is low as compared to their initial intake, being 22%, 30%, 33% or 36%, as against the proportion of their male counterparts which goes as high as 95% or 97% or even a hundred percent.Next Storylast_img read more

80,000 without power, but no deaths reported from Ohio tornado

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — More than 80,000 people in Ohio were without power early Tuesday morning following a massive tornado, but no deaths had yet been reported.
