Re: “Adkisson sees a Wolff in Republican clothing,” Brian Chasnoff, Front Page, Dec. 19:
County Commissioner Tommy Adkisson made a comparison that was in very poor taste.
Referring to County Judge Nelson Wolff donating money to Republican candidates, he said, “It’s like the pope going on a date.” The reference was offensive not only to the pope, but also to anyone reading this column.
That’s Tommy Adkisson for you, though. Remember that this was the same guy who went to a fundraiser for Bexar County Sheriff Susan Pamerleau, thinking he was going to a fundraiser for former Houston mayor Bill White when White was running for governor. And then there was the whole deal with Adkisson trying to hide his discussion of county business because it was under his personal email account. So, in other words, Tommy Adkisson isn’t exactly the sharpest knife in the drawer.
However, if as county judge he’d put the kibosh on that whole streetcar boondoggle, that already puts him way ahead of County Judge Nelson Wolff when it comes to looking out for the best interests of San Antonio, which is definitely something to think about.
