The Source: Primary Races Are Murder, Police Arbitration Ain't Arbitrary, And Sculley's Pay Raise

"Is Straus to blame for murder? Judson says yes!" states an emai from the Jeff Judson Campaign

The Reporters Roundtable talks three big issues this afternoon.

  • City Manager Sheryl Sculley received the votes she needed to extend her contract and change her pay structure, giving her a 75,000 bump base pay in three years. San Antonio Express-News city reporter Josh Baugh (@jbaugh) tells us about the vote.
  • A police officer who shot a man in the back gets put back on the job by an Arbitrator with a history of controversial decisions, and siding with officers. Express-News Columnist Brian Chasnoff (@bchasnoff) asks what does it take to get fired from the SAPD?
  • Tea-Party GOP primary candidate for House District 121 Jeff Judson endorses a new TV ad that calls his adversary - Speaker of the House Joe Straus - a murderer for not doing enough to secure a ban on "Sanctuary Cities." TPR Austin Reporter Ryan Poppe (@ryanpoppe1) updates us on what the Judson campaign meant and he and Brian Chasnoff discuss a race with some of the strongest hyperbole and rhetoric in the state.
