Behind closed doors

El Chuqueno pointed out the other day that city council wired their recent cultural center vote while in executive session.

What the post did not point out is that city council members should know better.

Section 551.005 of the Texas open meetings act requires each council member to take training relating open meetings and executive sessions within 90 days of taking office.

In other words these people should know what the rules are and should not break them.

Where was our city attorney on this?

We deserve better

    Well that’s pretty much how things work with politicians, Public Officials in El Taxo. Commissioners, City Council, City “Manager”, the Mayor, EPISD. Most of what THEY do to US, is done in “Secret”, without our knowledge or any info about what THEY are doing. A motel in El Paso, Dallas, San Antonio, meetings. And they LIE about what the voting ballots SAY and what THEY meant. “Who voted for this…………how did this happen”? WE just have to remember when we vote. NOTHING is what it seems, what THEY say. WE have to look-out for ourselves, because THEY do what THEY want, NOT what is best for US. Stupid trolleys, Arenas, ball parks, etc,etc.

    And four members of Council actualy said before public comment that they had already decided to vote for the Library plan….who cares what the public thinks? T-Rex and Tracey had already told them what to do.
