clatter doesn’t mean it is the truth
There seems to be this nasty
little rumor going around that Fort Bend County Judge Bob
Hebert is busy negotiating the sale of a building to the
county. Well, it just ain’t so, folks. Hebert says he hasn’t
a clue as to how these “coffee shop rumors” get started, but
he is sure unless one judge wants to office in his barn and
hold court in his kitchen, there isn’t much hope he can sell
his property to the county.
In other words, the only property he owns
in Fort Bend County is the six acres he has in Foster Creek
Estates near Richmond. “My financial records are public and
anyone can go to the courthouse and see what I own. I don’t
know how these rumors get started but there are people out
there who will lie about you in a heartbeat,” Hebert said in
response to the query on the latest tidbit of information
circulating on him.
With that said, Hebert also noted that
one of his detractors has been accusing him of hiring his
cronies and personal friends. He says this particular
blogger, apparently failed to mention that the five people
named as cronies were all employed prior to the time Hebert
was elected to the position of county judge. Heck, one of
them, Hebert noted, will be receiving a 15 year plaque when
the county next hands out the recognition to long-time
Having apparently pulled Hebert’s string,
he also requested that his detractors learn to spell and
properly pronounce his Cajun name.
So, there you have it—tell it like it
really is and if you have to start rumors at least get the
What if they held an election and
no one came?
That is what would happen if any of the
west end school districts had an election, at least this
year, as none of the candidates drew any opposition.
Lamar Consolidated Independent School
District trustee Position 1 school board member Kathy Hynson
and Position 3 board member Jesse Torres both filed for
reelection but no one filed to challenge their incumbency.
Needville Independent School District
trustee, Jim Kocian, Position 3; Position 4 trustee Mark
Wendt and Position 5 trustee Joseph Anderson all filed to
seek reelection but garnered no opposition.
Kendleton ISD Position 5 trustee Hubert
Walker and Position 6 trustee Koecadee Melton will both seek
reelection and are also unopposed.
So, it appears there will be smooth sailing for all the
incumbents in the west end school districts. Apparently they
are doing something right or they would have sparked at
least a flame of interest.
