Leohardt's betrayal of Adkisson in full color on YouTube!

Windcrest Mayor Jack Leonhardt betrayed his own County Commissioner Tommy Adkisson (who endorsed Leonhardt) and the Council of Mayors who appointed him to the MPO in order to give the City of San Antonio a quid pro quo for his own self-interest. Read details here.

Watch his pontificating prior to the vote where he DIRECTLY tells the MPO Board to vote against Commissioner Adkisson (so much for being an un-biased parliamentarian who presided over the vote) so as not to label the Board “anti-toll” due to Adkisson’s criticism of toll plans in full color on YouTube here.

Never mind that the community IS against the proposed toll plans and Adkisson is merely trying to reflect what the community wants! He’s representing the taxpayers while Leonhardt carries the highway lobby’s water! Leonhardt even contradicts himself when, first, he says the Chair vote isn’t about toll vs. anti-toll, then later he says he doesn’t want the MPO to be labeled anti-toll if Adkisson were Chair. Nice try, Mayor, it was a pro-toll vs. anti-toll vote…you made that clear! I’m sure the citizens of Windcrest will be outraged to learn of their Mayor’s pro-toll antics since I-35, their main artery, is in the toll plans.

    I was not surprised by Jack Leonhardt’s comments. He’s supposed to be representing the Bexar County cities’ mayors. Instead, his comments reflect his own personal opinions on the subject.

    The council of mayors he represents need to either replace him or have him vote according to the council’s wishes, not his own private opinions.

    If you live in a city in Bexar county, call your mayor and alert him or her to the problem. This could be a crucial vote. I believe the mayors in general are NOT in favor of these toll roads. As former mayor of Helotes, there were several other mayors in the area including myself who were concerned about toll roads. Grey Forest, Leon Valley and Helotes city councils voted to oppose toll roads…..

    It just takes a few minutes to call the mayor in your community to alert him or her.
