CM Brown, Go clean up your trash!

CM Peter Brown has made a point of wanting to beautify Houston on a number of occasions, more green space, bury power lines underground, bulldoze old dilapidated buildings, tear down billboards, etc. All proposals that CM Brown has made. But apparently keeping Houston clean and pretty is a problem for OTHER people to deal with, CM Brown is too busy to do that himself. Point of fact, he has yet to clean up after his successful re-election campaign. In midtown, there are at least two "re-elect Brown for CM" signs posted on public ROW on public property, I am told there is a third on Milam and Pierce that I did not have time to visit today, but here are pics of the two I found at Main and Alabama:

Camera was on the SW corner of Main and Alabama facing east.

Closer view of sign after I turned the car around, headed N on Main.

Yet another sign on Alabama just East of Intersection with Main. Camera facing North. Shot through my broken windshield.

You're either incredibly brave or ignorant of the risk of being flattened by the METREAUX "Transit Backbone" tram as you manuver around Main Street.

Also, being a conservative wandering in that part of town tops the risk scale.

Was the windshield cracked by a brick lobbed from an overpass, or, from gravel dropped by a dump truck with one of those signs that now disclaim any damage caused by thier negligence?

Royko, yes it was a chunk of gravel tossed by a gravel truck. There was no sign on the back, but from the name spray painted on the door and the mariachi music blaring out the window, I suspect the owner to be Mexican, and if demographics are any guide, likely illegal. Pursuing him for a replacement windshield would likely be futile. No insurance is par for the course.

Not only was I on Main, I had earlier ridden on the Dangertrain as well. Moments before I boarded it, there was a wreck in which a truck tried to make a left turn in front of the train at the UH Downtown station as the train started up. The northbound train had to reverse course and get switched over to the southbound leg to pick us up. I will give props to the crew that did that, they got the problem sorted and service restored fairly quickly. I did not see a single ticket checker however.

I'm not afraid of any Libtards in that area, most don't carry guns, they are afraid of them.

Brown is just another politician do-gooder that will cry for liberal rights, yet trample those that might disagree with him. He is a part of the "art & croissant" crowd that knows better for those heathens that work an honest day and pay his outlandish fees for his purported knowledge.

Poor guy needs a real job amongst the working class, but politician indeed he will mingle with only those that feed him and temper to his whims and ways... up the ladder. Wants to be Mayor.....
