Subject: Re: No Response from Ortiz
Don: "First, I wish you would tell us who you are."
I am Jaime Kenedeno of South Texas. A simple Google search will inform
you more of WHO I Am.

JK: I am saying, obviously the endorsements were Bona-Fide. The main issue
IMO is that you did not treat the candidates objectively. You
questioned only one of the candidates about their endorsements. Danny
has bolstered his precinct chair endorsements from the get go.
Don: " Yes, I would say some endorsements still are in question -- as is
the overall tactic Ortiz used to attack Noyola's credentials as an
JK: How can the endorsements remain in question? 23 Precinct Chairs stood
up and chose Solomon Ortiz Jr. as the Democratic Nominee for HD #33.
Tactic? The credentials of Noyola and the CCISD / Miller fiasco was
ongoing way before Vilma Luna resigned and Danny was informed before
the press conference. Also, one cannot attribute the attacks on Danny
as on behalf of Solly. Clearly there were Solomon Ortiz supporters and
Noyola haters; the tactics you speak of came from the Noyola Haters.
Don: "> I say this because Ortiz never responded to my additional emails or
JK: Your approach was disrespectful and bullying in nature. Some people
dont respond to threats or unobjective journalism. Also, why did you
not treat both candidates equally and ask them both to verify their
endorsements? And dont argue Danny had not announced his precinct
chair endorsements yet. Danny touted the endorsements long before
Solly ever had recieved even one.
Don: "But, to raise the question as you do ignores an important points: At the

JK: On Wednesday is when Danny Jr and Solly both emailed endorsements but
Danny's Precinct Chair endorsements had already be handed out in
Hardcopy the previous Sunday and for some reason Danny did not email
the digital version? However, the written endorsements were being
touted at least a week before I recieved the Hardcopy.

Local “Loophole Candidates” and Local “Loophole “Yanqui” Power Broker
held Chair Massage Seminars this week.
Local “Loophole Candidates” Solomon Ortiz Jr. and Danny Noyola Sr.
have been courting the HD #33 Precinct Chairs in an attempt to
solidify a majority vote of 44 precinct chairs who will be voting on
????????. Local “Loophole Yanqui Extraordinaire” / Power Broker Mikal
Watts, recently held his own Chair Massage (Whataburger Field) as well.
Capelo Still In The Craw Of the Trial Lawyers
Texas State House District #33 Precinct Chairs are currently very
popular since the July 4th Fireworks of the resignation of Incumbent
HD #33 Representative Vilma Luna. In all appearances of spontaneity
and quality family time explanations it really turned out to be an
accurately tossed piece of tough meat into a pack of ravenous who
currently rank lower on the food chain. This was not a woman changing
her mind but a coach pulling one of his players after exhausting
herself completely on the field of play. I commend her and I wish her
the best. Thank you for everything Vilma. You did your JOB and IMO you
walked the line with a trueness and loyalty. One must realize Mr.
Watts does not like to lose and with respect to the Capelo legislation
he is still fighting. This is the one thing that has made Mikal’s goal
to be the next Hayden Head. Patron WATTS is not a justiciable title
but then again he has a long way to go towards the Hayden Head Award.
So WATT is it about him that screws the little people? Well, here is
one example where our Primary Vote is USURPED. Another scenario to
conceptualize, would be the Judicial arrogance resulting in a denial
of justice for the rest of us; as attorneys who did not get their way
in another case and the knowledge of the technical maneuvers rendered
due to the innate feeling of invincibility our Judges develop due to
the effectual relief they provide for Mikal as a “Corporate Predator”.
Well that’s enough of that.
Local Politicos Rock & Roll on the Corpus Christi Bay
Solly held his event on the Captain Clark Flagship. Chili was
served, Tejano music, an extended cruise around the Corpus Christi Bay
and of course free beer. There was a very festive attitude and quite a
turnout. I spoke with Solly for the first time. He was a very good
host. We didn’t talk that much about the nomination except that he is
truly interested and he still believes he can get the votes. It was
kind of rough water and a couple of big tough men developed a mild
case of seasickness. That stuff will make one kiss mother earth upon
return. Who was there? Many I knew but many more I did not know the
faces but knew their names. It is kind of nice to put a name with a
face. I seen a few Precinct Chairs mainly Susie Luna, Nancy Vera,
Rowland Andrade and other Politicos such as René Rodriguez, Rene Saenz
and his wife Stephanie, John Kelly, Joe Benavides, Oscar Ortiz (Nueces
County Commissioner) and many children running around having a
“that chair is already taken”
We almost decided against going to the LULAC Barbeque for Danny
Noyola senior today but I am glad we did the food was delicious!
Especially the pinto beans, I have to get that recipe.
For those of you who missed it, you missed out on a tasty meal,
but there was no place to sit as I looked around there was a half a
table empty so I went over there to see if I could sit down and the
women said yes.
Well, I ate alone while Jaime talked with Danny and his wife Alma.
There were pictures along the wall of previous/current LULAC
presidents and/or members but I definitely recognized DR. Hector P.
Garcia as one of them.
After I scooted over the beer cans to put my plate down, several
men arrived and they just stared at me. When my husband whistled and I
showed him where I was. He came and sat next to me when the man on my
left then told US rudely “that chair is already taken”.
Well, rather than start crap, we got up and left the table. We
went and hung out in the front entry by the kitchen where Jesse
Olivarez (no relation to Larry) was cutting the brisket. I went to get
my husband and his brother a plate of food. His girlfriend was working
at the hospital and wanted a plate but Danny’s sister and another
woman refused to give me another plate. I told my husband and his
brother when Mr. Jesse Olivarez (who was right there cutting brisket)
told one of the little girls who were helping him to bring a plate.
Thank you Jesse!
I saw a few of the regulars on the political front Joe Benavides,
Brian Miller, Coretta Graham, and Nancy Vera and as we were leaving,
we shook hands with DMC Board of Regents Member Gabriel Rivas.
Got some documentation highlighting some precinct chairs
statements of their commitment to Danny Noyola. I counted 11 plus Alma
Noyola for a total of 12.
Danny Jr. spoke he said, “they already have more than the 22 they
need; but they were not all accounted for on the blue handout.
Some serious Partying goin down at the LULAC #1
Danny Noyola held his event at the LULAC #1. Barbeque was served
with rice beans and potato salad and of course free beer. It was
delicious. The beans were delectable. Danny and his wife Alma treated
us with all of the dignity and respect of royalty. During Danny’s
speech is when I decided to get a plate and sit down (while all eyes
were glued on Danny). At least that is what I thought till I sat down
in a vacant row of chairs next to my wife. Some older man, well let’s
just say he didn’t like me sitting next to my wife. Out of respect for
Danny & Alma and the privilege; I made myself defer. The only thing I
did not do, that I wished I had done; was get that guys name. I chalk
it up to old school Molina. It is not a big deal and in no way does it
affect my respect for Danny or Alma. I believe both Democrats (Danny
Noyola & Solomon Ortiz Jr.) are very capable and electable as HD #33
is a Democratic District. The Noyola Event was definitely a serious
event and to most of them I am an outsider. I am troubled by the
loophole method that the November Candidate will be chosen. After
meeting them both I will vote for one of them in November. Good luck
to both and should you prevail, we will expect full responsiveness to
us the constituency of HD #33. When we call, we want to speak with our
Representative or at least return the call. You know? Like it is right
Chair Massage cost Mikal much more than “TWO FER A NICKEL”
And Mikal’s bash?
Well, we wouldn’t know; since it was such an elite Chair Massage.
Only the best Massages for our HD #33 Precinct Chairs.
JK: Why would a Democratic Precinct Chair reveal anything to a Republican
unless he posed as a Democrat? And dont even play dumb.
Don: "Additionally, what's wrong, in a Democracy, with Republicans voting in
> Democratic primaries and vice versa? A vote's a vote, right?"
Wrong! For a person to vote in the primary he or she must swear they
are Republican if they are voting in the Republican Primary and vice
versa. So for a Republican to swear he is a Democrat so as to vote in
the Democratic Primary is in bad faith and approaches criminality with
respect to election codes. But in a simpleton's terms by advocating
for this you once again show your true nature to prevaricate.
