Neither of our west side city representatives has turned over text messages relating to the serial quorum of city council that they were evidently involved in.
One said that he had no responsive texts. The other said that “she has adhered to all laws that she is supposed to adhere to” according to a recent article in the Times.
Other text messages that have been produced by city council members evidently prove that she was part of a chain of text communications.
Above the law?
Are there some laws that she does not have to obey? I wonder if we can get her to produce a list of them.
According to the article she said “All I am in charge of doing is (turning over) what I have in possession at the time of the request”.
Other than the grammatical error the statement calls into question how she is in “charge” of this. Does she think of herself of being in charge?
Open records experts are telling us that it is illegal for the city representatives to destroy public records. Cell phone text messages that involve city business are public records.
Is she deleting her text messages? That would be an overt act in violating of the law.
She does not have to run for office during this election cycle.
We deserve better
