As usual the reigning “Queenie” (County Judge Barbara Shaw) answers to no one, because she has Commissioners Court, I call them (court jesters) always on her side to do her bidding.
She never answered J.P. 2 Korzekwa or County Auditor Lajuana Kasprzyk about the added expense of the transfer of the phones or the computer hook ups.
As usual the court jesters fell right in and voted 5-0 in the Queenie’s favor.
The truth is that the Queenie and the court jesters ran the platform that they were somehow going to stop the court house renovation and the new courthouse annex - Hello! Knock, knock, those two projects were a done deal, but people against the projects voted in the Queenie and her royal court, so when the County Offices on the Square were finished, no way the reigning Queenie (county judge) was moving into the new annex.
Now she says she didn’t want to remove the county ag extension people because “it was not a battle she wanted to get into at that time.”
Ma’am, the only significant thing you have done up to now is the dismissal of a bunch of DWIs and Bobby Busselman had been doing that for decades, he didn’t need your help.
The extra expense of contaminated soil at the new jail site, the proposal to buy another contaminated landfill for the road and bridge administrator and now lately the expense of a lobbyist in Austin to do your job and the Commissioners Court (your royal jesters). Man, you are batting a thousand. What gets me is where is the outcry from the Yarters, Clyde Eckols, the Stimsons, all the opposition against the courthouse restoration and the building of the annex?
Remember that old song of the 50s “Whatever Lola wants Lola gets.” –it should be re-named to “Whatever Queenie wants, Queenie gets,” as long as the court jesters follow right behind!
