FLORESVILLE -- Tension hung in the air as frustrated citizens of Floresville awaited their opportunity to say their piece during the June 11 special meeting of the Floresville City Council. Mayor Daniel Tejada declared the meeting to be over before it began, due to the lack of a quorum.

Only two members of the Floresville City Council attended the meeting, Mario Morones and John W. Guerrero.

“I told Mr. Guerrero that they wouldn’t show,” Morones said, referring to missing council members Sherry Martinez Castillo, Jesse Christopher Flores, and Johnnie R. Gomez. “I just feel a certain group of council members sticks together. I have talked to Mr. Guerrero and we are both on the same page. There are a bunch of times I feel like some council members just stick together, but everyone needs to be able to make their own decisions for the benefit of the people.

“The residents of Flores-ville had a few questions and we just want to clarify,” he continued. “Some of the concerns are due to the audit or concerns about shifting money around or whatever. We are just here trying to keep the citizens and taxpayers happy.”

Floresville residents in attendance expressed their disappointment in the lack of a quorum for the meeting.

“I would like to know why Castillo, Flores, and Gomez were not respectful enough of the citizens to show up,” Deci Murphy said. “On May 31, the audit was presented and approved right away, without explaining many of the discrepancies and problems which were found by the auditing company; we want answers. This city is in bad shape.”
