The Editor responds to Rogelio Colon
regarding his comments on GarciasGang
García's Gang decided to stay quiet this week, wonder why? Well they decided the bestcourse of action was stick to the plan, which means continue buying buses, room nights andmost of all buying the rights of people (buying their votes), taking off the rights democracy just simple buying a two days vacations in Las Vegas and a couple of beers.The Editor Response: The Puerto Rican government, under the governorship of LuisFortuno who was with the pro-statehood party of the PNP,
paid for Margaret Moran’s
candidacy by financing the campaign with over $1,000,000.00 each year in 2010, 2011 and
2012. Luis Fortuno’s PNP was
shellacked in the 2012 elections in Puerto Rico by the PDP,a pro-status party, so the days on hundreds of thousands of government monies are over.
Moran’s campaign is spending as much money as Garcia’s campaign. The only problem iswe do not know the sources of Moran’s
finances. Part of the money is coming from WalterMartinez. Martinez is the person whom Margaret Moran, Oscar Moran, and ManuelEscobar sold the Corpus Christi Hacienda LULAC apartments to for a net to NationalLULAC in the sum of $250,000.00. Walter turned the purchase into a $10,000,000.00apartment re-development project 10 days after the purchase.
To Garcia,s Gang it does not matter the consequences this practice will do to the League, itdoes not matter if there is any or no contribution at all to LULAC, it does not matter whatit cost to the image of the organization and to the image of the Latino Women. Soundsfunny imaging just if we a Puerto Rican running this quest....yes one of the same peoplefrom a LULAC charter that elected the last five LULAC Presidents, and without their helpnon of what we called Past National exist.
The Editor’s Response:
The Editor had an English professor read this part and concluded thatthe writer does not know what he/she is saying. Sounds Puerto Rican, could be a female, probably is a Puerto Rican from the island, given that island Puerto Rico has been in LULACsince 1994. But the record needs to be corrected. Island Puerto Rico was involved with theelection of the LULAC President in 1994 through 1997, 1998 through 2001 and 2010 through2012. These terms involved three LULAC Presidents, not five. From 2002 through 2009, thefederal government had rounded up island Puerto Rico politicians who were involved in graftand corruption and send a few off to federal prison. Island Puerto Rico was out during thoseyears. The PDP in island Puerto Rico ended the freewheeling days of Luis Fortuno and the PNPin LULAC mainland politics. Gracias a Dios.
The are thousand things to fix this crisis, the crisis for power, but i string believe that is notgoing to happen during this upcoming National Convention. Because Garcia's Gang willtry to create a chaos, yes a chaos....they will bring lawsuits, statements and some non sensearguments with the sole purpose of delaying General Assembly business. Also in thematter of the election for president is going to take a long ride, because Garcia wants to runno matter what the judge said, he will try the 3/4, after that i will assume one of the lawyersDovalina will try to address the assembly with some legal argument, after that Flores willtry to throw from the floor an other candidates like Rene (from TX) or Dave (from CA) or
