FLORESVILLE -- After the city council failed to muster a quorum Aug. 23 for the second time in one week, Floresville councilmen John Guerrero and Mario Morones have decided to reach out to the citizens of Floresville.

“I am upset,” Guerrero said. “It seems as if the votes are already pre-determined before we ever even get to chambers. The other council members and the mayor already know what is going on before we even get to the meeting. People, the very citizens who put us in office, get up to talk and speak their minds and then are treated like their voice doesn’t matter.”

Guerrero and Morones were not in attendance for the scheduled Aug. 23 council meeting. Guerrero had an ill relative to visit and Morones said he believes he is representing the will of the people of Floresville by putting a halt to the apparent voting block of councilmen Sherry M. Castillo and Jesse C. Flores, with Mayor Daniel Tejada voting in their favor to break any tied votes. Councilman Johnnie R. Gomez has resigned to pursue the office of mayor.

“I will do what I need to do to protect the people of Floresville,” Morones said. “It is not that we are trying to stop the city from conducting business, but there needs to be some explaining done about the current budget and the people are owed transparency.”
