HOUSTON COUNTY: Without the knowledge and consent of his fellow Houston County Commissioners, Chairman Mark Culver has crafted by design that he can hand award some projects under $ 50,000.00.
And prior to the end of qualifying for public office for this election cycle, Chairman Culver did just that.
On a building that is not owned by Houston County, Chairman Culver handed a $ 38,000.00 roofing project, with no bid.
HOW DOES THAT MAKE ALL OF YOUR ROOFING FOLKS FEEL?
Chairman Culver had burned a lot of bridges with the political mover and shaker of the area politics. That is Mr. John Watson. The Country Crossings fiasco had damaged Culver in the area of support with the money people.
Culver thought he might have competition in the election cycle. In fact, I had thought about running against Culver. But, I decided I did not want to join their slim club.
Culver knew he needed Mr. Watson's support. Culver knew he needed back into the grace of Watson.
So without the approval of the Houston County Commissioners, Chairman Culver handed over a $ 38,000.00 roofing project of the Mayer Electric Building to Marty Robbins Roofing. The project was without a bid.
Marty Robbins Roofing is owned in part by Mr. Watson.
UNDERSTAND ABOUT MR. WATSON
He is a mover and shaker. He is an honorable man. He does put money into politics. Unfortunately he puts money in the septic tank called Bob Riley.
With that said, Mr. Watson has nothing to do with Culver's actions. Culver was just trying to use Houston County's money to gain favor with Mr. Watson.
No one qualified against Culver,, which is unfortunate. He will continue to take advantage of people and make him money. People do still have until June 3 to qualify as an independent candidate.
