We noticed a pattern with the Letters to the Editor in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, they all seem to be for Cathy Hirt for Fort Worth Mayor. Could it be the citizens finally woke up and are sick and tired of the Fort Worth Way?
In several cities, we keep hearing the word puppet. WHO wants a puppet for a mayor??
We hold this truth to be self-evident. Fort Worth is ruled by a big-money oligarchy. Nothing of consequence can be done without their say-so.
The oligarchy tells you to vote for Betsy Price because she would make independent decisions. Horse feathers. At a recent candidate forum I asked Betsy why she would leave a $140,000 life time job for a two year $30,000 job. Her response: "Because Kay Granger asked me to." Independent decisions? Like a puppet on a string.
Long before Mike Moncrief announced he would not run again, Cathy Hirt wrote her declaration of independence. Likewise, we the taxpayers of Fort Worth declare that we are, and of right, ought to be, free and independent voters, and are absolved from all allegiance to the oligarchy. With our John Hancock, we the people will elect a truly independent voice -- Cathy Hirt -- as our mayor.
