Former Mayor’s Letter to Editor is Maliciously Baseless
unknown

Well, here we go again! Fresh off his failed effort to convince voters that a tax rollback would harm the city’s contribution to our volunteer fire department [VFD], former McLendon-Chisholm [M-C] Mayor, Mike Donegan is now attempting to impugn my efforts to shrink our government with a new array of misinformation in last week’s letter to the editor in the Rockwall Herald Banner. Donegan, a full throated advocate of last year’s proposed $0.32 tax rate, (a 228% increase), tries to obscure facts behind my initial support for keeping the current tax rate ($0.15205) in the PRELIMINARY BUDGET, requiring a citizen survey BEFORE the budget is finalized. Donegan doesn’t want to highlight this fact because lies and deceit has become so much a part of his…

Whose Vision Should the City Council Follow?
huge.103.516926

Former MC Mayor, Mike Donegan is at it again! Donegan used today’s city council workshop to lecture us about the importance of vision for a city, working from an old liberal lie that those who effort to limit the size and scope of government suffer from a lack of it. The man who created the PAC deceitfully disguised as a citizens group propagating a litany of lies to mislead and deceive voters from supporting the tax rollback, used today’s city council workshop to lecture the city council about the importance of VISION following years of leading our city to violate our standards to protect our wide-open spaces and more rural lifestyle, taking away citizen’s right to chose their own sanitation service providers so that the city can take a…

Tax Rollback Opposition is Forged on a Lie!
3604c66

The former Mayor of McLendon-Chisholm [MC], Mike Donegan, who opposes the May 7 city tax-rollback ballot initiative, published an article in the Rockwall Herald Banner, where he made OUTRAGEOUSLY FALSE assertions about the rollback’s impact here in this newspaper! I’d like to set the record straight! Donegan says that the rollback “will weaken the readiness for the fire department to respond to emergencies” and “place our families at risk,” stipulating that the necessary cuts in budget is “most likely to come out of the fire department.” However, Donegan’s assertions are incontrovertibly UNTRUE! Facts prove that all funds approved in the FY budget have already been fully dispersed to the MCVFD (see third page highlighted section in this link to the Meeting Minutes)!  This eliminates all questions concerning MC’s…

The Truth About those “Facts” in Political Action Committee’s Letter
AWD6mFzR_400x400

The anti-rollback Political Action Committee, disguising itself as “Citizens for McLendon-Chisholm,” got “creative” again in making their latest case against the rollback.  A litany of half-truths and outright lies “propagate their propaganda,” which has become their bred & butter! Most notable is their repeated focus on a VISION for the city, which is NOT “OF, BY, and FOR THE PEOPLE,” but the current political establishment that they represent. Their letter is supposed to be based on “FACTS.”   But, as the late Paul Harvey used to say, “Here is the rest of the story.” Outright Lie #1 “A few months ago our committee came together after realizing that the issues were critically important and there needed to be balance in the discussion.” REAL TRUTH:  Until I helped start Citizens for Representative Government of MC last…
