What bond investors weren’t told about a threat facing Cinco Ranch - Houston Chronicle
MUDS are created by the legislature or the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, typically at the initiative of developers. A handful of "electors" can vote to ratify a district's existence and authorize it to sell hundreds of millions of dollars in bonds. The electors are hand-picked and sometimes live in trailers on the site of the future subdivision, to satisfy a legal requirement that they be residents of the district.

/ it usually doesn't require that much effort - fake slivers of land are "sold" to electors

The smooth staffing transition was key. Formal coach in waiting has usually been disastrous. Bob Stoops made it work informally here by stepping away from a playoff caliber team. Hard ever to give Bob Stoops enough praise for what he did at OU over his career, including his last move.

In which Texas-hating Texan Mimi Swartz rants about the NRA and Texas for New York Times readers
So she hates NRA political donations. What about Planned Parenthood, which is responsible for many times more deaths?
