FLORESVILLE -- City Manager Henrietta Turner remains on the job, following the Floresville City Council's 2-2 vote to terminate her for allegedly exceeding her authority.

No mention was made as to the circumstances surrounding the move, which came following more than an hour spent in closed session at a Dec. 19 special meeting. Councilmen Johnny Ray Nieto and Mario Morones voted in favor of firing Turner while Eric Rodriguez and John W. Guerrero voted in opposition.

According to attorney Chris Hugg of the law offices of Louis T. Rosenberg -- the city's legal counsel -- the city's home-rule charter requires a majority vote of the council in order to terminate a city manager. Mayor Diana Garza was not permitted to cast a tie-breaking vote.

I don't have a vehement opinion of Miller. But the fact is he lied to the voters. That's an undisputed fact. Also, I don't doubt that you remain loyal.I feel confident that the remaining council are/were part of that same loyalty.

1st - Silva, your close friend, the Mayor, is Diana not Diane! 2nd - Alex A$$hold Lippert, I am very suspect of your vehement opinion of Jim Miller. Yes, I was and am a Miller Rah, Rah and proud to consider him a friend. ... More ›
