"Recall threat prompts hire of leal team"

After last Thursday's Special City Council Meeting, Will Gibbs met with the Mayor, Lou Rosenberg, and Melissa Killen.

"We're hoping that we don't have to use these services," Tejada said.
- There is no hope required. Mr. Mayor, simply answer the questions that have been asked and none of this will be necessary.

The Mayor indicated that he did not know whether a recall petition truly existed.
- I seriously doubt that. Considering he had an employee from the Hispanic Association of Municipal Officials, which he serves as president, "like" the Recall Them All Facebook page. Mr. Mayor continue with your delusional thinking and everything will be just fine for this community.

"It's unfortunate that one person has initiated a lawsuit against the city and a recall of the entire council," Tejada said
- First of all Mr. Mayor, you obviously do not know how to read. The lawsuit was filed by the County Attorney, Russell Wilson. My name does not exist anywhere on the lawsuit. The County Attorney was only made aware of the numbers, did his own investigation and filed the lawsuit against the City Manager by his own volition.
- Secondly, a recall of the entire city council can not be initiated by any one person. If you read the City Charter, there is a process that first requires a petition signed by not less than 500 registered voters of the City of Floresville and if that petition is successful a special election must be held to determine if these officials are recalled.

Tejada did not address the questions regarding sales tax appropriations first raised by the Wilson County News and by Miller during the city's summer budget workshops. Instead, he criticized Miller.

"This is a person who doesn't even live in the city, doesn't vote in the city, any only pays approximately $285 in city taxes," he said.
- Not necessary all true. Yes, I do live in Leon Valley and my property taxes are just under $285. However the businesses that we operate generate several thousands of dollars in State Sales Tax. A portion of which go to the City of Floresville, the Street Maintenance fund, the Floresville Economic Development Corporation, and the 4A Corporation. Let us not go into the economic commitment that we have to other businesses in this community.
- Does the amount of taxes paid by an individual determine if you have a responsibility to answer their questions? Does the amount of taxes paid by an individual determine if they are afforded accountability by the elected officials and their appointees?

"We will incur legal fees and election costs if this goes forward."
- This is true as you are digging in your heels and choosing to fight this using taxpayer dollars. The reality is that none of this would be necessary if you would simply answer the questions about the discrepancies in the historical numbers presented in your budget as compared to those of your own audits and of the Office of the State Comptroller.
