It seems that yet to officially announce San Antonio Mayoral candidate Diane Cibrian is continuing in her apparently never ending fight against “Booby Rock” and other strip clubs in San Antonio. For those who don’t know there were plans to open the strip club on Interstate 10 near Huebner in an abandoned bar called “Hooligans.” Once these plans surfaced Cibrian of course fought it with all she had. The plans were scrapped but weren’t abandoned all together (at least we found out tonight that they weren’t). Tonight News 4 WOAI in San Antonio reported on its 10 O’Clock newscast that the man who wanted to open the club a couple of years ago … is trying again. This time he wants to open the club just a mile down the freeway near I-10 and Wurzbach in the building that has been vacated by the closing of a night club called “Planeta Mexico.” Cibrian again wants to fight it for the good of the neighborhoods. Cibrian seems to not realize that there is another strip club in that neighborhood called All Starz … why isnt she fighting that one? She apparently wants to make this a plank in her platform for the campaign. She wants the voters of San Antonio to think that she is fighting against the undesirable aspects of society. Unfortunately, I don’t think that this will get her very far. I think it might become a laughing matter. Why fight a new strip club that will be less than half a block from another one? It doesn’t really make a lot of sense Diane. Look, I personally might never find the desire to go to a strip club … I mean I don’t really understand why you would pay a woman to do what I assume goes on … just get a girlfriend. (Hahaha) Look … everyone has the mentality of not in my backyard … but business is business … its gotta go somewhere. What this boils down to is that you want to decide what businesses can make it in San Antonio. What then is the extent of government involvement in our lives. If we don’t want the strip club there … guess what … we won’t go … and it will close down. Simple as that Diane. The market will figure itself out.
Kind of on an aside here … Diane looks like she is also trying to imply that she is the next Phil Hardberger. How can I say this? Well her campaign signage looks to be very similar to outgoing Mayor Hardberger’s. Take a look at the logo above and this from the Hardberger website back in the day:
Anyone else notice the similarities? Either Cibrian and the Mayor used the same company for logo design and they aren’t worth the money they get paid … or Cibrian wants to you to think she is the next Phil Hardberger (who has been a very popular mayor in town). But going to that length? Really Diane? Really?
Today, Candidate for San Antonio Mayor Trish DeBerry-Mejia became the first candidate in the race to air a television ad. Take a look at it below:
Deberry-Mejia is up against current one term Councilwoman Diane Cibrian (District 8) and past loser and former Councilman and twin Julian Castro who lost in 2005 to current and outgoing Mayor Phil Hardberger. I campaigned against both of these two candidates in the past. I campaigned against Cibrian in 2007 when I campaigned for Jacob Dell for the District 8 seat (he missed the run-off election by 12 votes). I campaigned against Castro in 2005 when I campaigned for then District 9 Councilman Carol Schubert (who also missed the runoff against Hardberger). So as of right now I am inclined to support Trish for Mayor. Look for a possible official endorsement coming soon as I continue to breakdown the fastly approaching San Antonio Mayoral Election.
