FOR COMMI$$IONER$ NOT WHAT FIRMS KNOW BUT WHO THEY KNOW
Remember when we reported how County Judge prayer partner Mary Hammer-Menzel ( better known as the Tools of Satan” lady, offered her consultant services with this endearing question –
“Have you ever wondered how some companies keep getting new projects? It’s simple, it’s who they know. It’s not enough to be certified, registered in supplier databases or attend supplier conferences. You need access to decision-makers, the power people.”
Well, as if to prove the point Houston Chronicle Columnist Mike Snyder has has obtained some emails from an engineering firm with ties to former Commissioner and current County Judge and RUD Director Craig Doyal.
“Commissioner Doyal has every engineer in town calling me to be considered for a design task on SH 249,”
So Mary Hammer-Menzel was not kidding, Its who you know! And the commissioners are not bashful about doling out favors to friends. Its difficult to pick on Commissioner Noack for giving a no bid contact to Klotz Associates when it now appears that all he was doing was trying to fit in.
