THEY FINALLY COME FACE TO FACE ON THE ISSUES!
For the first 20 minutes it was a bunch of pleasantries between Pam Holm and Ronald Green on KCOH radio Friday morning. Both of the Houston City Council Members are running for City Controller. Over the last two weeks the race between the two has gotten particularly ugly. Holm has gone public with Green’s personal finances. Federal records show and Green confirms he owes the IRS over $100,000 for back taxes. Green calls it an honest dispute. Holm says if Green can’t get his own finances in order how could he run the Controller’s office. Here are some of the key points I was able to gather from the half hour debate on KCOH paid for by Holm:
*Ronald Green says Pam Holm’s own campaign manager has two tax liens owing over $150,000 – so she should understand – he also says this is Republican dirty tricks!
*Ronald Green says Pam Holm’s campaign manager tried to blackmail him with the details of his tax lien before they released it!
*Holm says a lot of people have issues they have to deal with but when you’re running for Controller and the finances of a city the first thing you should do is make sure your personal finances are in order!
*Holm says a Controller has a responsibility to the city to make sure they don’t have personal issues that would jeopardize their ability to ensure the city is in good fiscal shape!
