"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.
