Endorsement watch: One bond

The Chron comes out in favor of one of the Harris County bond proposals.

On the Sept. 6 ballot is a bond proposal to issue $70 million to build a new Family Law Center. The facility is urgently needed, and the Chronicle urges voters to approve Harris County Proposition 5.

The aging Family Law Center here is too small to accommodate the 120,000 litigants that pass through its halls every year. The center's four elevators are inadequate to the need. The building is decrepit, and mere refurbishment would little improve the situation.


Harris County's population is booming and stress on families is increasing. Large investments in social services are necessary to treat some social ills and prevent others. The Chronicle urges a vote for Harris County Proposition 5 to provide for a new Family Law Center. The bonds issued for the new building would require no new taxes.

I voted for HC Prop 5, so I have no quarrel with any of this. But, um, there were five other County bond propositions on the ballot. What is one to conclude from the fact that the Chron has only seen to address one of them by this point, with only two days of early voting left? I must confess, I'm a bit baffled.

Once again, KBH has proven that she has no real position on anything and everything she does is based not on a position, be it personal or partisan, but simply on politicial posturing aimed solely at making her appear all things to all people.

It must work. She has been re-elected twice. Maybe not enough people have noticed that her pom poms are finally falling apart.
