Judge's blog calls Collin County bond plan 'pork'
Collin County: Others on Commissioners Court defend proposal
Thursday, October 11, 2007

The honeymoon is over.
In a battle being played out largely in the blogosphere, Collin County Judge Keith Self has broken ranks with his four colleagues on the Commissioners Court over the upcoming $328.9 million bond election.
Mr. Self opposes the propositions for roads, buildings and parks and has repeatedly denounced the spending package as "pork" on his blog.
One commissioner has responded with blog posts of his own, while all have issued a joint news release endorsing the bonds. Early voting begins Oct. 22 for the Nov. 6 election.
The rift marks the first major spat between Mr. Self, a first-time officeholder who took office Jan. 1, and commissioners, who have a combined 76 years of elected experience. In previous bond elections, the all-Republican court has spoken with one voice in support of spending measures.
