Special City Council Meeting Commentary – Part One

Agenda item #3, C&A to adopt Roberts Rules of Order (11th Edition), was the first item of consideration. As the City Attorney explained, these Procedure Rules would add a degree of civility to the proceedings and prevent members from attacking other member’s motives or personalities. Councilwoman Castillo stated that they would be setting an example for others to follow.

This was nothing less than an exercise in hypocrisy by the Mayor and his puppets.

As I was waiting outside City Hall before the meeting the Reserve Floresville Police Officer who normally officiates at these meetings arrived. Shortly there after, two marked police cars arrived and the officers, one carrying a citation book, entered the building. Conversations continued outside and about 3 minutes before 7:00 p.m. we entered the building and took our seats.

As the meeting began and the discussion over Roberts Rules of Order, respecting each other, keeping everything up and on the table, etc began, I was informed that a concerned citizen was being removed by the Police Department. Ms. Deci Murphy, a 70 year old Wilson County resident, who has attended a number of meetings was being removed from the meeting and taken into the hallway by three Police officers. Although she asked for me to be with her to serve as a witness, a Police Officer grabbed be by the arm and removed me from the hall. The City Manager remained with the Police Officers and Ms. Murphy.

Well, Ms. Muprhy was issued an indefinite trespass warning citation. She was told that she could not enter the City of Floresville Council Chambers until such time as she was authorized to do so by the Mayor or the City Manager. Apparently Councilwoman Sherry Castillo filed a complaint against Ms. Murphy citing her aggressiveness as threatening. I’m not sure how Councilwoman Castillo was threatened by a 70 year old woman or that it justified such unethical actions. So much for respecting each other and open government!

This hypocrisy continued throughout the meeting.

The Mayor, again, while pontificating about the City’s need for a Sports Complex, yelled at the Citizens in attendance. He stated that a petition that contained 5% of the registered voters signatures was submitted (The Mayor has a problem with math as you will see in Part Three of my commentary – 383 of 3,990 registered voters is closer to 10%). He continued to say that he represented a 100% of the community and was taking action for the other 95%. The Mayor obviously believes that he is above the law.

As Councilman Gomez and Councilman Morones attempted to speak on the topic the Mayor continually interrupted them and belittled their questions with outright sarcasm. As citizens spoke, they were also interrupted by the Mayor or ignored as he was focused on the clock on the wall. One citizen during his input, was asked for his address by the Mayor. The Citizen asked the Mayor if he was planning a drive-by or something?

Outright intimidation and censorship of the Citizens by way Roberts Rules of Order was the result.
