He really is just like Trump. He just can’t stop lying.
In a recent push card claiming to support the Houston Fire Fighters Buzbee claims “The mayor ignored voters and sued the firefighters”. This is not true. According to Houston Public Media:
The Houston Police Officers’ Union (HPOU) has filed a lawsuit against both the City of Houston and the Houston Professional Fire Fighters Association, in an effort to block implementation of a charter amendment granting firefighters pay parity with police officers of equivalent rank. Houston voters approved the amendment, also known as Proposition B, earlier this month.
The Police Dept wanted the Proposition to be ruled unconstitutional, and it was. According to the Texas Constitution the pay increases must follow certain procedures and not simply putting a pay increase on the ballot without allocating funding for it. (Talk to your City Council Member about this. I did.)
The article goes on to say
This is the city, not the Mayor as Tony wants you to believe. Do yourself a favor. Ask your elected officials how the city could pay for a 29% increase in Fire Fighters pay. Most will be honest about the lack of funds but the desire to increase pay in a sustainable manner.
Buzbee on the other hand will probably just lie to you. It worked for trump.
