All the avoidance and denial behavior is clearly designed to protect political friends who are part of stealing public assets and whose behavior should be questioned by citizens and law enforcement as a corruption racket. It is all about a lot of money, the continuing theft of cash flow that was intended to help elderly, disabled, and unfortunate citizens with housing programs, and thereby protect and improve the community.
Email, phone text, or other written text containing any questions to or discussion between any Taylor City Council member, other Taylor Council members, and the Taylor City Attorney containing any of the following described information
Yes, it happened. Sometime before March 12, 2013, the Taylor City Attorney, Mr. Ted Hejl was given probable cause to believe major felony crimes were committed against THA. That fact is documented in the THA Board minutes. Ted Hejl’s client, Mr. Ed Komandosky, appears to have been involved in those crimes.
Taylor Mayors, to include Mayor Jessie Ancira and Mayor Brandt Rydell, and other council members know about these crimes and have abandoned their sworn oaths and principles. They support the crimes by ignoring the truth.
Mayor Brandt Rydell used the Taylor Council Chamber for fradulent political theater. He presided over a disgusting public ambush on Councilman Garcia with a pack of lies. Rydell should apologize, but, he won’t. Rydell and his cohorts, do not have the moral spine to demand a criminal investigation into the HUD Inspector General's evidence of the THA felony crimes, or apologize for publicly supporting false claims against a good and honorable man who refused to be a puppet.
Responses from the Taylor District 1 City Council candidates Mr. Herbert Brinkmeyer and Mr. Gerald Anderson to questions about the Taylor Housing Authority Crimes.
By claiming "Ag Exempt," the land is not being taxed for business use and Councilwoman Lopez evades paying thousands of tax $ and the Taylor Transportation User Fees (TUF) that other other businesses are required to pay each month.
Questions to the Taylor City Council District 1 candidates about the Taylor Housing Authority crimes. Their responses will be published on March 29, 2019.
“The Taylor City Attorney, two Mayors, and the District Attorney, all lawyers involved in politics, have refused to demand a criminal investigation of major crimes, involving $ millions, committed against a public corporation created by Taylor citizens. They know they will find corruption.”
"The multi-million $ THA crimes reek with the smell of brazen corruption and there is clear evidence of a continuing cooperative network of corrupt officials from the Mayor, through the Taylor City Attorney, to the Williamson County District Attorney."
Citizens need to know the full truth when a fellow citizen’s Constitutional rights are violated by an elected official and successfully defended. Those who ignore or deny and then misrepresent the truth simply want to control the electorate with propaganda. Citizens need to know they can fight and win against corrupt politicians.
Through the guise of her “Black Stallion Lawn Care” business, Taylor Councilwoman Christine Lopez filed a rambling and incoherent $1,000,000 lawsuit against Tom Mowdy in January 2017. Lopez claimed Mowdy defamed her business, and interfered with an existing and prospective contract with the City of Taylor. The newly elected Councilwoman’s business was bidding on a mowing contract with the City. She named two Councilmembers, Robert Garcia and Chris Gonzales, as Mowdy’s “cohorts.”
Taylor Councilwoman Christine Lopez has lost two of her civil lawsuit attempts to crush public criticism of her unethical political behavior. Her claims are direct nuclear attacks on the Texas and U.S. Constitutional provisions for freedom of speech and association.
I see the election as a choice between continuing the “Old Boy Network,” and a City Council that has integrity and a willingness to honor their oaths and follow our laws. My reasons are about honesty, integrity, and the future.
In 2011, the Texas Legislature passed a strong “Anti-SLAPP” law that protects, and thereby encourages citizen participation in government. The law protects a citizen’s speech, rights to organize and use media, and communications that address matters of public concern.
Taylor Councilwoman Lopez sends threatening and intimidating letter to Citizens who speak out on her conflict of interest.
Councilwoman Lopez’s actions are nothing less than violations of her oaths and the Taylor City Charter, and an attempt to intimidate and prevent citizens from participating in a matter of public concern.
Taylor City Councilwoman Christine Lopez attacks Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Association with lawsuit.
Councilwoman Lopez has refused to take any valid and responsible legal action to prove her position and has thereby created public doubt and her problem.
Certainly, when Taylor citizens voted to establish a restrictive conflict of interest qualification for City Councilmembers, they did not intend that restriction could be immediately overcome by referral to State law through another section of the Charter.
"Wilco County Attorney, Dee Hobbs must prove the value and quality of his sworn dedication to uphold our Constitution, State laws, City Charter, Taylor Ethics Ordinance 99.17, and the citizens of Taylor, Texas."
When you look at the Taylor Charter, you won’t find a recusal procedure, but you will find Ted Hejl’s signature approving the Taylor City Charter. So, he knows he is lying.
Wilco Attorney Dee Hobbs, Taylor Mayor Jessie Ancira, and Taylor City Attorney Ted Hejl lied to Taylor citizens about Conflict of Interest
The Taylor citizens have adopted, by the Taylor Charter, a prohibition against any conflict of interest. Wilco Attorney Dee Hobbs, Taylor Mayor Jessie Ancira, and Taylor City Attorney Ted Hejl have conspired to deceive Taylor citizens about that Charter requirement.
Williamson County Attorney Dee Hobbs sends letter designed to fool Taylor citizens about violations of the Taylor City Charter
If the conflict of interest laws and the Taylor City Charter are unworkable, then we need to change how they are written and not create the precedence of bypassing and ignoring our laws. They were written well before the Councilwoman was elected.
The Mayor and City Attorney are politically gaming. They have had more than two weeks to answer a simple question. They have an obligation to serve Taylor citizens and their refusal has forced a citizen into municipal court. They now have an obligation to explain why they are foot dragging and playing with Taylor politics.
What the Statesman's article about the Taylor Housing Authority did not say and why it is important.
Considering the omissions, it is hard to avoid concluding the Statesman’s news was written to shape and guide a predetermined public opinion rather than report critical facts. Those critical facts involve the elected and appointed officials who had direct responsibility for the Taylor Housing Authority.
Tune in to the Mike Allen Show live podcast on Wednesday night July 20, 2016, at 9pm to hear evidence that cast doubt on the fourth estate value of the Austin American Statesman, Taylor Press, and other local Wilco media.
TONIGHT! Local businessman and blogger Tom Mowdy joins me to discuss his fight to expose and remove corruption from his hometown. Does the "good ol boy" system still hold sway in the Texas town of Taylor?
Claire Osborn’s Statesman article does a major disservice to Taylor Citizens. Claire provided an escape pathway for those who should be held responsible for the costly THA debacle. I hope that was just a matter of poor research.
TAYLOR, Texas (KXAN) – A criminal investigation of alleged wrongdoing outlined in a 2014 federal audit of the Taylor Housing Authority appears unlikely, according to records obtained by KXAN.
Which parent should have the exclusive right to determine the primary residence of twin boys born to a never-married couple?
The multi $ millions property and large annual cash flow loss is nothing less than your money being stolen from you, every month, while our elected leaders do nothing but fear what Taylor citizens would find out if there was a competent investigation.
The poll is really asking if you want to ignore corruption and crime in Taylor.
Money is defined by Texas law to be property and each time rent is collected, from the stolen properties, it is an unlawful act. The THA properties were meant to serve the community and the cash flow money property is unlawfully taken to enrich those who now receive that rent money.
The Texas Attorney General has ruled municipal housing authorities are divisions of the municipalities and are therefore subject to the control of the elected municipal leaders. Bottom line is the City of Taylor has complete authority over the Taylor Housing Authority.
From 2008 until 2014, there was no public announcement about the housing authority missing $2 million from any Taylor Mayor, THA, or the city administration. The illegally transferred property and cash flow matter was kept quiet. That took focused “do nothing” teamwork.
How is it possible that the THA attorney, who is also our City Attorney, could have knowledge, or not, that $2 million in public property was illegally transferred and the cash flow of that property was diverted since 2008, and do nothing for years?
"Right now, we are the only group out there working to assist your citizens and to protect them. We want you to join us, because there is nothing more important than protecting the safety of these families. Your policies damage the very people that support this county, and that needs to change."
“The authority lost control and possession of a $255,000 property it owned, lost control of two component units with net asset values of more than $1.7 million, and incurred $392,059 in questioned costs,” according to the audit. (The values of those properties have since increased to total more than $2 million, according to THA’s suit.)
The annual cash flow loss alone, in this property and money loss, is greater than the annual tax recently levied on Taylor citizens to improve Taylor roads. Taylor citizens deserve a full and transparent investigation by an external law enforcement entity to determine the facts.
Family court corruption is a major problem in Williamson County. The Austin Bulldog editor, Ken Martin, shows how Travis County's Domestic Relations agency is organized to reduce the potential for family court corruption.
Matt Heaton Seeks Fair and Honest Justice System for Williamson County Citizens
On February 23, 2016, Matt Heaton, Republican candidate for Wilco Commissioner Precinct 3, plans to use the Wilco Commissioners Court 3 minute citizen comment period to express his personal views on Williamson County family court racketeering.
Matt, a U.S. Marine veteran, indicated he will urge all Williamson County elected officials to exercise the leadership needed to end family court racketeering and ensure Williamson County citizens have a fair and honest justice system.
It is impossible to accept this investigation as valid. It is better described as corrupt and inhuman. It crossed too many boundaries, ignored evidence, refused to address a threat to testimony, and has all the appearances of a managed sham investigation. The question is why would anyone want to control the investigation into sexual abuse of a child?
The failure of politically controlled agencies to respond is why TACF citizens appealed to the Williamson County Commissioners on December 1, 2015, and January 5, 2016, to protect families and prevent further harm. TACF has evidence that those who are supposed to investigate, indict, try, and judge TACF's claims are involved in the racketeering.
The evidence includes courts operating behind closed doors in violation of the Texas Constitution, unlawful ex-parte decision making, suppression of child sexual abuse evidence, ignoring the endangerment of children, fraudulent billing, gag orders to keep victims quiet, and much more.
TACF is requesting the District Attorney candidates commit to requesting an external law enforcement agency like the Texas Rangers, or a Federal agency conduct the investigation at the District Attorney’s invitation.
District Attorney is a powerful position in our political system and as Michael Morton can attest it requires an individual with integrity, an individual that at least appears trustworthy. The evidence shows Jana Duty does not meet the minimums standards. It is very unsettling to think we will have another Michael Morton case with this kind of law enforcement.

"Texas Association for Children and Families" is Assisting Victims of Williamson County Family Court Racketeering
The Texas Association for Children and Families (TACF), a Texas nonprofit association, is seeking to restore the legal rights of individuals who have been, or will be, subjected to family court decisions in Texas, and seek compensation for those individuals who have been harmed by family court in Williamson County, Texas.
Robert Lloyd and Wayne Krause Yang are fighting the Williamson County Commissioners Court's efforts to make it legal for the Commissioners to impose their personal religious judgments and beliefs on every citizen in Williamson County.
They are professionals with established relationships in the courts, police, and support agencies. They know their system and how it can be churned to their benefit and profit. The racketeers view Constitutional rights, the law, and morality as administrative nuisance and sentimental obstacles on their path to profit.
There is unquestionable evidence that greed, in the Williamson County family court system, will ignore or manipulate child abuse to maximize profit.
When I see a Williamson County elected official violate our Constitutional guarantees of due process by denying a man evidence that could prove him innocent of murder charges I am disgusted. I consider that elected official to be a completely dishonorable person who has committed treason by betraying the principles of our nation.
The mother had undeniable reason to be concerned, to report signs of sexual abuse, and demand investigation and protection for her daughter.
What would you do if your three year old child complained of sexual abuse? What if that daughter said "Daddy hurt me," and pointed to her vagina?
What if the system really uses the "best interest of the child," to extort money from parents while ignoring medical reports of child abuse.
There is blatant evidence of crime and intent and when that is ignored by our elected law enforcement officials it is a threat to every citizen in the county. Williamson County citizens need to completely overhaul the justice system leadership and get rid of corrupt county officials like Doyle Hobbs.
Evidence shows Williamson County officials ignored felony crimes committed against a senior citizen Vietnam war veteran and his wife. The undeniable evidence was provided to the Travis County District Attorney's Public Integrity office in support of "Official Oppression" criminal complaints made against Williamson County's District Attorney, Jana Duty, District Clerk, Lisa David, and County Clerk Nancy Rister.
In the continuing fight against corruption in Williamson County, Tom Mowdy filed a criminal misdemeanor complaint against John W. Hughes for refusal to remove a fraudulent lien claim Hughes filed on Mowdy's property. Hughes used fraudulent claims of materials and labor and presented a fraudulent document Hughes claimed was the contract for the work performed. All Hughes's claims were determined to be fraudulent. Hughes violated Texas law by filing the fraudulent documents.
Williamson County Attorney Ignores Serious Crimes
In a continuing saga of obvious corruption, the Williamson County Attorney, D. Hobbs, ignored deceptive trade criminal complaints that can have a serious impact on Texas and Williamson County citizens.
Mowdy files deceptive trade complaint against American Arbitration Association and Arbitrator
Tom Mowdy filed a deceptive trade complaint with the Taylor, TX., Police Department, on February 25, 2015, claiming the American Arbitration Association (AAA) and Arbitrator Mathew J. Sullivan charged Mowdy for arbitration services which they failed to provide in an apparent attempt to cover up felony crimes by a lawyer and his client.
Mowdy disputed the payments to AAA through the American Express credit card customer dispute process. Mowdy's detailed dispute, similar to the criminal complaint, itemized the cover up techniques used by the arbitrator. American Express agreed with Mowdy and returned $12,377.50, all but $1,700 which was not within the disputable time limits.
Mowdy presents evidence the arbitrator avoided the "Findings of Facts and Conclusions of Law" he was paid to determine for the case. Mowdy won the arbitration but provides evidence the arbitrator knew there was criminal evidence involving the false $113,914.11 claim against Mowdy.
Mowdys complaint provides detailed evidence there was criminal activity ignored by the arbitrator and the arbitrator protected the contractor who filed the false claim. The arbitrator refused to perform any of the required calculations or provide the facts for specific issues during the arbitration.
Tom Mowdy was a Democratic candidate for Williamson County Commissioner, Precinct 4, during last November's election. Mowdy based his campaign on what he describes as the Williamson County Culture of Corruption and presents compelling evidence that citizens and their taxes are victims of blatant administrative and judicial corruption in Williamson County.
STOP THE CORRUPTED PAY TO PLAY CYCLE - TAKE YOUR FRIENDS TO THE POLLS AND VOTE THE BUMS OUT.
Williamson County Commissioners Court behavior, is in violation of our U.S. and Texas Constitutions and is purposely designed to divide our common interests by turning citizen against citizen while contractors are overpaid and our taxes are raised.
Williamson County Commissioners Court
The Williamson County Commissioners Court legal expense for the Lloyd case is now over $123,000, and climbing. The Commissioners are being sued for civil rights violations during a government job interview.
Don't let them fool you. When you pay more in taxes than the years before, your taxes have been raised. No matter what illusion they try to cast, count your money and that will tell the truth. The scam claim demonstrates they will not be honest now, or in the future.
Fraud corruption reported by an anonymous tipster led to a Federal investigation of the Taylor Housing Authority. The report indicates more than $1.7 million in financial irregularities. The report has been referred to the Housing and Urban Development (HUD) General Counsel for possible criminal charges.
Where will this end? Will our county fight for the right to ask justice appointees their religion and political beliefs? They claim it is a political position and the questions are appropriate. But they forget to say that citizens will not know the answers to those interview questions and cannot ask their own questions as would be so in a political campaign
Tom Mowdy, Democratic candidate for Williamson County Commissioner - Precinct 4 releases an open letter to the citizens of Williamson County.
Mowdy's letter urges citizens to examine the evidence that Williamson County citizens are forced to live in a culture of corruption and to make change by going to the polls.
Early voting begins October 20 and goes through October 31. Election day is November 4.
The legal bills are approaching $90,000 for the Williamson County commissioners accused of asking questions about religion, abortion and gay marriage while interviewing constable candidates last year.
Mowdy condemned the Commissioner's behavior which clearly indicates their failure to observe basic rights given to citizens by the U.S. and Texas Constitutions.
This letter was attached to the letter sent to Jana Duty in an attempt to make her understand what young men and women do to defend our principles, our laws, and our Constitution. She did not respond.
August 2012 Letter with Mowdy's criminal complaint to Jana Duty against the fraudulent document and civil rights violations.
November 9, 2011, certified letters to the Williamson County District and County Clerks making them aware that a fraudulent document was filed in their legal domains and that document is fraudulent according to Texas Law.
The lien claim document was fraudulent according to Texas Government Code 51.901
Tom Mowdy, Democratic candidate for Williamson County Commissioners Court - Pct 4 has requested the Travis County Special Prosecutor investigate criminal official abuse and oppression against the Williamson County District Attorney, Jana Duty, District Clerk Lisa David, and County Clerk Nancy Rister for accepting and filing a fraudulent lien claim against Mowdy's homestead in violation of Texas Government Code (TGC) 51.901.
By a September 9, 2014, court order, the judge confirmed facts showing the property lien claim was not valid, the document contained false claims and accounting, and crimes were committed against the homeowner, a senior citizen and Vietnam war veteran. Judge Mathews forced the veteran to pay $8,000.00 in legal fees to remove the false lien claim from his homestead.
Chapter 17, Paragraph 17.46 (b) (22) states it is unlawful to represent that work was performed when it was not.
Sec. 37.06. INCONSISTENT STATEMENTS. An information or indictment for perjury under Section 37.02 or aggravated perjury under Section 37.03 that alleges that the declarant has made statements under oath, both of which cannot be true, need not allege which statement is false. At the trial the prosecution need not prove which statement is false.
Acts 1973, 63rd Leg., p. 883, ch. 399, Sec. 1, eff. Jan. 1, 1974. Amended by Acts 1993, 73rd Leg., ch. 900, Sec. 1.01, eff. Sept. 1, 1994.
Although Mowdy won the arbitration case which determined the contractor's claim was false, the arbitrator lied about some of his findings. The lies are explained in detail.
The contractor filed a law suit against Mowdy with a false contract and then failed to meet discovery. Mowdy motioned for a Summary Judgement.
But, Ken Anderson, 277th District Court Judge at the time, ignored the missed discovery and the inequity, and sent the case to arbitration event though the contractor filed the lawsuit and claimed against Mowdy under "Quantum Meruit" a term that means "no written contract.
This speech addresses, a culture of corruption in Williamson County.
The contractor falsely swore, in writing a document was the contract act of Tom Mowdy, and filed that writing in two official proceedings. First, a lien claim then in a lawsuit. Texas Penal Code Chapter 32 Fraud Sec. 32.21 defines those acts as forgery.
When committed twice, the intent to harm is presumed. When committed against an elderly person, the charge is elevated to the next higher level.
The contractor himself confirmed the document was false with his two conflicting sworn statements.
The false November 16, 2011 sworn statement that the attached 119 pages were a contract act of Tom Mowdy. The document had no signatures. (The complete document is too large to load. As shown in photo.)
The true and correct contract signed on August 18, 2009.
This photo release shows the true and correct August 18, 2009 Contract next to the fraudulent contract.
The court order confirming the arbitrator findings that determined the facts that show the lawsuit document was false.
The "Findings of Facts and Conclusions of Law," signed by the arbitrator.
This document fails to meet the requirements of Texas law and the American Arbitration Assn rules as explained in my complaint to the Texas Attorney General.
The same complaint, my rights and due process were violated, was used to dispute the arbitrator's feed through American Express. American Express agreed with my compliant and refunded the aribitrator's fee.
The contractor's lawyer personally certified and swore the facts, accounting, and documents were true and correct. That sworn statement was false. The arbitrator determined the document fled as the contract was not the contract.
It is a felony to file a fraudulent document in an official proceeding. Judge Stacey Mathews ignored this crime and the associated perjury by the lawyer and contractor.
Mowdy disputed the arbitrator's fee based on deceptive trade and refusal to observe Mowdy's Constitutional rights. The arbitrator had the opportunity to defend. American Express agreed with Mowdy and refunded the arbitrators fee to Mowdy.
Mowdy presented the same arguments to the Texas Attorney General and State Representative Larry Gonzales and was refused any answer.
American Express stood for a veterans rights when the Texas Attorney General and State Representative Gonzales would not.
The insurance company refused to pay the contractor stating that there were duplicate charges.
Mowdy requested an audit from the contractor who claimed Mowdy owed $113K. The contractor refused, and his claim was later found to be fraudulent. But, Mowdy had to pay attorney fees to have the false lien removed.
Mowdy requested the contractor release the lien under penalty of law. The contractor refused and Mowdy had to hire an attorney. The 277th District Court refused Mowdy attorney fees for removing the fraudulent lien claim.
Mowdy filed this motion in the 26th District Court and it was transferred to the 277th District Court. Judge Ken Anderson, abated this judicial review and sent the dispute to arbitration after the contractor missed meeting discovery deadline.
The 277th District Court has refused to review the known false document because it would be the second legal confirmation of forgery. After confirming the finding that a false document had been filed in her court,against Mowdy, and the claim against Mowdy was false, Judge Stacey Mathews then denied Mowdy legal fees for removing the lien based on the false document and claims.
This release contains the document Mowdy submitted to the arbitrator in defense of the contractors claims.
