Someone called me yesterday to find out how to drop off the 30-day report for the 'Somervell County Hospital District Political Action Committee'. I went over his house and picked it up, he got it from the County as you can do with any public records. Went ahead and uploaded the report to here but am going to spell out a lot of it below so people can find it searching on the web. Charles Thomas is the treasurer and you can reach him at 1636 County Road 306, Rainbow, Tx 76077 or at 254-897-7289. Did Charles disclose this in all his letters to the editors? Why isn't his name on all the campaign signs and literature like everyone else when its campaign time?

The next thing that stands out on this report is the fact that it has been filed late, this is a 30 day report meaning it has to be filed 30 days before the election but it was filed April 29th, 12 days before the election. Expect a complaint to the Texas Ethics Commission about this and I encourage others to do the same (where is Ron Hankins now?)

Their numbers do not add up as they claim they have $5557.60 money raised with expenditures of $4362.67 and cash on hand of $1644.93. If you take the 5557.60 and subtract the 4362.67 you SHOULD come to $1194.93 but they have it down as $1644.93, a difference of $450....and they want our tax dollars in their control with no oversight, scary stuff!

Here's a list of the donors, their addresses,  when they donated, how much they gave, their occupation and some notes. These are the folks that are spending their money in order to increase your property taxes in Somervell County:

On their expenditures...remember their 'buy local' stuff on the fliers? So where do THEY go to spend money when it comes to newsletters? They go to Print One at 3252 Fall Creek Highway in Granbury, Texas 76043 and spend $2018.00 instead of 'buying local' according to their own Schedule F, and they want YOUR tax dollars!!

Interesting to compare this with some of the letters to the editor of the newspaper. The 5 people from Granbury live in Pecan "Cash Cow" Plantation. Pecan Plantation, of course, is not in Somervell County, but Hood County.

Also, I have looked back at both of Charlie Thomas's letters to the editor in the Glen Rose Reporter (at least the 2 I have seen, from March 28 and May 1, and in neither letter does he disclose that he is the treasurer of the PAC. Maybe he doesn't have to, and the Reporter is happy to give him free advertising, but I believe that's important to know.
