Sunday News Round Up

There has been a lot going on, so here are some of the highlights.

Charlie and Eileen throw one heck of a party to kick off the session.

Boyd Richie was selected to run the Texas Democratic Party until at least June. Reports from Burnt Orange say that Urbina-Jones was nominated but withdrew his name for the full consideration of the convention in June— exactly like Glen Maxey. I am definitely looking forward to actually having a vote and debate in June.

Quorum Report, reports that 124 amendments have been filed for the five house bills and will be considered Monday.
Capitol Annex has a great break down on how the calendar rule vote that occurred Friday. The short story is the rule passed, the long story is here. In response to the Auto-Craddick reign in the House, Democrats have offered their own tax plan.

The San Antonio Current announced the “Best of 2006”, and while they forgot to name JAB as best local website they did hand over that award to The Jeffersonian. Hey Cincinnatus, write more, we miss you!

On a final note, I went to Oyster Bake last night and saw either Julian or Joaquin Castro. Ever since Twin Gate, I am not sure who is who so we will just say that they were “both” there.

Yeah I think I saw Joaquin too. He was waiting right outside the gate with a phone on his hand, possibly for the rest of his group.

pink shirt?

No blue... or at least I think it was blue. The beer was flowing like wine.

maybe they were both there or one of them was changing shirts to throw us off the scent.

Congrats Cincinnatus - and yes, you need to write more.

Gina Castaneda being picked at top politico...

As far as the SDEC coronation, what a sham. I saw Richie, Maxey and Jones speak at the TYD conference at the same venue. I like Charlie, I think Glen's the best guy for the job, and I think Boyd Richie needs to sit on his front porch and reminisce about his good old days when he was active and James Madison was the party chairman.

At 11:25 PM, Blogger Michael Wright, SAYDs Treasurer said...

C'mon, Demosthenes, that's a bit harsh on Gina.

However, The Jeff is a class act, and I'd go there more often if it was updated more frequently. I can only guess that Cincinnatus got him/herself a job or something.

Luckily no such problems at the SAYD blog ( just yet... I know, a shameless plug.
