Tell city council what they want to hear

If you or I want to go down to city council and speak against something they are doing our mayor is very strict about limiting our speaking time to three minutes.

After all rules are rules and city council can’t be asked to waste time with your ignorance.

On the other hand if you want to support something that they are trying to do our mayor uses a different stopwatch.

Such was the case the other day when a local personality gave a rambling, emotional, wandering talk about the Durangito area.  He spoke for 9 minutes.

Our city parliamentarian should also have intervened.

Our thanks to Jud Burgess for pointing this out.

We deserve better

    Well that’s because Hishonor the Mayor, City Council is a DICTATORSHIP. If THEY want to hear what US “Stupid , ignorant peons” THINK, what OUR opinions are, THEY will decide whether or not WE have an “Opinion” and THEY will decide exactly whether OUR “Opinion” is ” allowed” , what THEY think it should be. In El Taxo it IS THEM against US. Never forget that. Elections have consequences and El Taxo suffers the “consequences” of being a “Democrat run city”. Nothing ever changes here, nothing ever gets better for the PEOPLE. “Quality of Life” here is how good things are for POLITICIANS, Public Officials.

    If you are referring to Mr. Morales, the reason he got so much time was because the mayor gave him his own agenda item and therefore more time to speak than the usual 3 minutes during Call to the Public. A sleazy move by Morales and Margo in my opinion.
